Danica Patrick has fought the perception that she’s just a pretty face ever since joining NASCAR in 2012. Her racy Go Daddy commercials certainly don’t help that perception, and neither will this latest comment from supermodel Bar Refaeli.
Refaeli, who starred with Patrick in a 2013 Go Daddy spot, recently told USA TODAY’s For The Win that she believes Danica would be a great model.
To be fair, Patrick is in an extremely tough spot. She needs to market herself – as all NASCAR drivers do – while trying to remain credible on the track. Victories and less comments about her looks would go a long way.
