Danica Patrick, Pippa Mann are Indy's most popular drivers
Indy Racing League (IRL) golden girl Danica Patrick has won the circuit's most popular driver award six times now. However, the sexy race car driver (who has been featured in Sports Illustrated and FHM, among other magazines) could soon be battling for that trophy.
Pippa Mann recently won the same honour on the Firestone Indy Lights circuit. The British blonde beauty is one of the top candidates to move up to the Indy ranks next season. She won a race and had four top five and seven top 10 finishes this season.
Meanwhile Danica, the lone female ever to win an Indy car race, had zero wins, three top fives, eight top ten finishes and ran some NASCAR events. She did not lead an IRL lap this season, according to the Indianapolis Business Journal.
Could Pippa, who is very good on the social networking front, challenge Danica as Indy's most popular driver? Or as its top female driver?
