Photo: Danica Patrick’s High School Yearbook



Danica Patrick finished a disappointing 38th in the Daytona 500. It was a fitting end to a less-than-inspirational week. Patrick qualified 29th but dropped to the rear of the field at the start per NASCAR rules, as a crash in Thursday’s Gatorade Duel Qualifying race forced her to a back-up car. She also crashed in the Nationwide series race (the only one in which she can earn championship points) on Saturday, bringing her total of wrecks for the week to three; not the best way to begin her NASCAR career.

And now…her high school yearbook picture revealed, see it after the jump. Click it for a larger view.

A few months back, we brought you the cringe-inducing photos of Tony Stewart, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jimmie Johnson. Today, courtesy of our pals at Snakkle, we present you with some more looks back, starting with the cheerleader at Hononegah Community High School in Rockton, Ill., that you see above.

That link also has Kyle Busch’s high school yearbook photo. By the way, a cheerleader on that high school team, motor sports reporter Nicole Manske, who married driver Ryan Briscoe. For more on Nicole Manske Briscoe go here.
