Best Speed Racer (2009)

Danica Patrick

Not only is IndyCar driver Danica Patrick super-hot — she landed in Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue twice — but she's super-fast, too. The Scottsdale resident was named Rookie of the Year for the 2005 Indianapolis 500, finished fourth at the Indy 500 that same year (the highest Indy 500 finish ever for a woman), and she became the first woman to ever win an Indy Car race last year, at the Indy Japan 500. Patrick also finished the 2008 IndyCar Series in sixth place, the highest ranking for an American driver in the series that year. She's even brought her speed-demon ethic to the streets of Scottsdale, where she's received two speeding tickets. You go, girl!
