Danica hates clothes

Apparently there’s this magazine called Sports Illustrated, and they have this annual swimsuit issue that’s rather popular. I don’t know – I’m not a subscriber. Anyhow, fresh after unzipping in some GoDaddy ads Danica Patrick is now unzipping in Sports Illustrated.

Looks like GoDaddy does NOT give her all the exposure she needs.

Because you’ll be so fascinated looking for her “tramp stamp”, the pictures are here. There’s also a Q&A with Danica and some guy named Dan involving more discussions of undressing.

DAN: Have you worn a swimsuit underneath your suit while racing?
DANICA: [Pause.] Not quite.
DAN: What have you worn underneath the suit?
DANICA: [Laughs.]
DAN: Have you gone naked under the suit?
DANICA: Well, uh, kind of.
DAN: So, no underwear in the race suit?
DANICA: Yeah, well, you know ... they get in the way.
DAN: You go commando?
DANICA: I don't know. Maybe we shouldn't talk about that.
This would explain why she hasn't been doing any Victoria's Secret ads, although with these new weight requirements for 2008 she might as well put her undergarments back on. Ahem.

    That's no "tramp-stamp", sir. I believe the tattoo above Ms. Patrick-Hospenthal's bottom reads "Property of Andretti-Green Racing."

    Well, as the old saying goes: "Some people have it and can make it pay, other folks can't even give it away." :^/

    The smart thing to do if the IRL or AGR had any input in this, is to affix an IndyCar logo on each page of the photo shoot in the magazine, as well as an IndyCar 2008 TV schedule on one of the pages. Good for promotion and publicity. However, they would need to affix an asterisk advising the reader that the 2008 schedule is subject to change.

    Whatever pays the bills, I guess ...

    I don't have kids yet, so I don't have the same perspective as many others here, but Danica's recent marketing ventures have drawn her a lot of attention which could in the future draw a lot of sponsorship money. ...provided she can start winning races, too. Whereas I think some of her recent spots have been on the edge, I don't think it passes into the realm of sleazy. But like I said, I don't have kids and if I did my opinion and perspective might be different.

    She is a very attractive girl however she's just gonna be looked at as a novelty act until she can actually win races...

    Here's an interesting league comparison. While the IRL (through Danica!) is using sex to promote itself, CCWS seems to be doing exactly the opposite. Witness a promotion currently on their website titled "World's Largest Grid Girl Contest". Tell me, how would you get your girlfriend to enter that? "Come on baby, you're WAY bigger than any of those girls!"

    Personally, I loved the part of her interview when she said she wouldn't pose nude...that you "have to draw the line somewhere." I'd love to know exactly where she draws the line. Beaver commercials?? Her parents must be so proud. Maybe she could actually start earning her fame by winning some races and I might take her more seriously. Otherwise, she has become nothing more than a cartoon character.
