Danica, Oh Danica!

Fast girl, Danica Patrick took a short break from driving fast cars (and starring in Go Daddy commercials) to grace the stage at the National Press Club today where she talked about her first appearance in the Daytona 500.

Patrick will participate in the Daytona stock car race on Feb. 26.

Patrick admits she doesn't want to "set the bar too high", but just wants to be the best she can be.

Focusing on NASCAR fulltime this year after splitting time between open-wheel and stock cars in 2011, Patrick, promised to “embrace my new chapter with the same will and energy” that marked her IndyCar success.

In 2005, Patrick became the first woman to lead a lap at Indianapolis. In 2009 Patrick became the highest finishing female, finishing third.

**Update** February 24.
Patrick wins pole at Daytona in NASCAR Nationwide.
