Danica Patrick shared her story as a female racer, businesswoman in new doc

Danica has been racing since 2002, after she dropped out of high school to pursue her dreams. In 2005, Patrick became the only woman to lead the Indy 500.

The documentary focuses on her everyday life outside of the track. Being a driver for as long as she has, Danica has focused on the racing portion of her career, and less on who she is as a person.

The documentary shed light on what goes on behind the scenes in the life of a race car driver.

She tells us about the start of her clothing line, holding one of her shirts up and talking to the camera,

“This was the flutter sleeve, it kind of hangs off your arm and looks flattering. Just as far as details I wanted to put in a shirt. This company G3 I was talking to them about merchandise for the race track and then they went ahead and went to work and we created a clothing line. Instead of thinking small with team shirts, we went all the way.”

Danica has been answering questions for many years regarding the racetrack, but finally wants to step away from that and talk what she likes to do outside of her job, and who she is as a person.

“Racing is what I do, it’s not necessarily who I am. 5 years ago if you were to ask someone what I’m doing… I’ve now made businesses of all those things.”

She then shares her wine collection and her workout log that she’s been jotting on for the past year. She calls herself an “over trainer,” with her muscular physique, who could argue?

The documentary also touches on her experiences as a female in such a male-dominated industry.

Check out the behind the scenes view of Danica:

Danica is set to air on EpixHD November 8th at 8 PM. Definitely worth a look!
