I know this isn't about racing, but Alex Morgan is, like Danica, a true hero to thousands, if not millions, of little girls across the country who look up to them as examples of what can be done if they work hard to follow their dreams.
"Dream big, because dreams do happen." - Alex Morgan
"You have to dream. You have to think it can happen, or it's never going to." - Danica Patrick
Alex Morgan finished 2012 as the new face of the U.S. Women's National… Continue

Brad rode in the Detroit Thanksgiving day parade. He was lucky enough to be sharing a ride with Alex "Baby Horse" Morgan because, well, it's Alex Morgan. He was also unlucky enough to be sharing a ride with her because she has about 700,000 more twitter followers than him, and she was mobbed… Continue

There's a hole in the Indianapolis 500, and it won't be filled any time soon. Continue
It's not something you can see, but something you feel, much like the emptyness of a lost love. Like any emotional void, only time will heal it and then only with a little luck, good fortune and very hard work.
Gone is that long black ponytail flying in the breeze and running through Gasoline Alley on the way to pit road. Gone is that sense of the underdog, the minority, the small but determined…

Several years ago I had the pleasure of meeting, online, my now dear friend Reggie. I had a MySpace page "DanicaFans", dedicated to Danica. Reggie had a blog about Danica. Our paths crossed, and he asked me if I would be a guest contributor on his site. Shortly after, he decided to found GoDanica7, and asked me if I would like to join him in putting it together. We each had our talents, and put them to use as best we knew how. So here we are. It started out as a gift from us to Danica, and… Continue

INDIANAPOLIS _ Probably the best female driver in the world _ and certainly the woman most likely to set world motor racing on its ear _ isn't competing here, or at Monaco or Charlotte, this month.
Danica Patrick is sitting… Continue

Danica plans to deliver at Indy
By Tom Weir, USA TODAY
— Although she's only 5-1 and three-quarters and 105 pounds, Danica Patrick has an iron-grip handshake that instantly conveys the intensity that helps make her the first woman with a genuine chance to win the Indianapolis 500.
"That's her trademark," says Lyn St. James, the… Continue

- Mattel, Inc., whose Hot Wheels miniature cars have been collected by auto enthusiasts since 1968, has hit its first snag in the company's storied history. It was recently announced that a new series of cars based on the open wheel rockets of the Indy Racing League (IRL) were being introduced, and the first production model off the line has a problem, leading the… Continue

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. _ That a 23-year-old woman was the fastest _ by far _ in this week's rookie orientation for the May 29 Indianapolis 500 may astonish some people. But it doesn't surprise me a bit that Danica Patrick has, as my wife says, "given a whole new meaning to `You go, girl.''
In 1997, with the 500 dropping in international esteem because of the split with CART, I sat in Lyn St. James' garage in… Continue

Note: I first published this on the DanicaFans MySpace page, the day after the 2008 Indy 500. Someone asked me to post it here as well, because they felt that it sums up an important part of what Danica brings to IndyCar racing, and how she has helped rekindle an important element that has been missing from the sport. I hope you enjoy it.
(Thanks to my friend and avid Danica fan Danielle for the inspiration.)

News from the pits....
- Scott Dixon's 12th place finish yesterday at Infineon Raceway came as a complete surprise to the Kiwi driver. After all, he was the leader in points going into the race, which he won last year knocking Dario Franchitti from the points lead and setting himself up for the 2007 series title. There was certainly no reason to think… Continue
