America's most successful female motor racer Danica Patrick may be drop dead gorgeous. However, the 32-year-old NASCAR driver reveled in an interview to AOL.com recently that men never approach her because they fear her.

"Apparently, I'm intimidating! That's why no one wants to talk to me and no guy likes me," she told the website before recording the best finish by a woman at the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama recently (22nd place).
It's no wonder then that the female speed demon has had to find love on the racetrack, in the form of fellow NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
But here too her profession takes over, as she claims she's a crazier driver than her man. "I drive a lot more crazy on the road than Ricky but I let him get all the tickets (traffic penalties), not me," she said.

Finally, and amazingly, the woman who boasts of perfect control on the racetrack, is apparently a nervous wreck while driving an ordinary four-wheeler to the market.
"I'm very impatient. I have physical anxiety when riding in a car with someone or driving. Bumper-to-bumper traffic doesn't bother me because there's nothing I can do about it, but if I see an open road in front of the car that's in front of me, I get very frustrated," added Patrick.
