1) Janet Guthrie
Starting at the pole position is the pioneer of women in racing, Janet Guthrie. She is the first woman to qualify for the Daytona 500 and Indianapolis 500. Her racing career lasted 4 years during which she had 5 top ten finishes. In this sport, just crossing the finish line in one piece is a great accomplishment. Some of her achievements are enshrined at the Smithsonian.
2) Danica Patrick
Next is the one who brought sexy to motorsports, Danica Patrick. As a racer, she won the 2008 Indy Japan 300 to become the first woman to win an IndyCar series race. She has since moved on to NASCAR, which is a more rough and tumble type of racing as the cars can bump and scrape. She has yet to score a victory at NASCAR's highest level. Her record is respectable with a couple of top ten finishes. Of course, her career branched off to become a model and celebrity endorser of GoDaddy.com. She's hot, she's fesity...Danica, I wanna burn some rubber with you...pun intended.
3) Johanna Long
Rounding out the field is a newbie. Johanna Long is currently racing in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, one step down from the big leagues. She's just starting out, and she won the 2010 Snowball Derby. Come on Johanna!!! We're looking forward to big things from you and some commercials, too.
