Breaking News: Danica Patrick Takes Five Test-Laps on NASCAR Track!
Really, doesn’t the media have anything better to do than following Danica Patrick around?
Danica Patrick gets taste of NASCAR at Daytona
Once IndyCar star Danica Patrick figured out how to get in and out of the stock car, the rest of her testing session at Daytona International Speedway went without any problems.
They just told her the car was a skin-tight bodysuit.
She was fine after that.
Her five laps around NASCAR’s most famous track Friday felt “a little slow” — no surprise since those IndyCars go about 50 mph faster — and her test was considerably smoother than the storied superspeedway.
Her main concern?
“I felt most disoriented with how the heck I am supposed to get my stuff on?” she said following a rain-shortened ARCA test. “I can’t get in the car with all that stuff and I can’t buckle my belts and I can’t do it with my helmet on. So I get in the car and I have to tuck my hair down the back of the suit and I can’t do it because I am strapped in and I am just awfully confused, so I decided I needed everything on but my helmet and then get in the car.”
Is anybody else seeing the press conference as the sleepover scene in Grease?
“It sounds silly, right? It’s logistics, but they’re logistics I am not used to. I am used to being fully dressed and then getting in the car.”
Oh, now, just stop that. You know that’s not what she meant.
