Danica Patrick is taking the final race of her career quite seriously.
Race car driver Danica Patrick is hanging it up soon - in fact, this year's Indianapolis 500 will be her final race in either NASCAR or IndyCar. It looks like she is doing everything she can to go out on top.
This week, Patrick has been posting videos of herself doing some pretty serious workouts. It looks like she's making some decent user of her home gym.
Patrick, who crashed at the Daytona 500 earlier this year, told the AP that she is going to Indianapolis to win the race - not just participate.
"I'm going there to win the thing," Patrick said.
"For sure I'm nervous," Patrick told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. "I'm nervous because it's been a long time and anything that matters, you get nervous for. And on top of being gone a long time, I want to do a good job. I want it to go well, I want it to be like the old days and have a shot and win the damn thing."
Here's what she's been doing to get in shape:
Patrick seems to be entering a new phase of her life. She's moving on from racing - and she's got a new boyfriend in Aaron Rodgers. It'll be interesting to see if she stays in the spotlight moving forward.
