There are rules in racing. Like not passing under the safety car. You can't intentionally hit another driver to take him out of the race. And if you're going to make it as a female driver, you'd better be hot. Smoking hot.

There aren't a lot of women in motorsports, typically male-dominated as it is, but the few we've seen have mostly been pretty, well... pretty. The first example to come to mind, of course, is Danica Patrick, who moonlights as a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model. Jodie Kidd, meanwhile, is a model who moonlights as a racing driver. Natacha Gachnang and Susie Stoddart aren't hard on the eyes, either. Noticing a trend here? Now put it to rest, because the next up-and-coming talent in motor racing is a certified knock-out.

Her name is Maryeve Dufault, and she's making her NASCAR debut this weekend in Montreal in the Nationwide Series for the NAPA Auto Parts 200 on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, not far from her hometown of Sorel, Quebec. Until now, she's been working her way up in the ARCA feeder series. But before that, she made it as a model, showing up on the New York Euphoria team in the Lingerie Bowl and on The Price is Right, and even did some stunt driving on a b-movie called Fast Girl that might as well have been about her.

We'll be watching to see how Maryeve does on her NASCAR debut this weekend, and maybe enjoying perusing the photos just a little bit more for it. But for now, you're invited to view some interview footage of her after the jump.

        Danica was never all that hot to begin with (wafer thing with no curves) - she just looks good compared to every other driver out there. I just hope this Maryeve chick isn't as much of an attention wh0re as Danica was, and actually has some talent to back up the attention that was given to her.

          Agreed. Danica is totally plain.

      She also pays her own way in nascar. She doesn't get handouts.

      That just goes to show you the skill Nascar requires...

        If NASCAR is so easy, then why can't any of the F1 drivers win?

          Nascar = no downforce. F1 = Downforce...... easy answer.

          Montoya hasn't won in Nascar?

          gtv4rudy, weren't you the one who implied it wasn't all that impressive that he won at road courses? Given that he's part of a tiny group of F1 drivers who have won in NASCAR and F1 (other 2 are Dan Gurney and Mario Andretti).

        So you've been around a 2.5 mile tri-oval in a 450hp, 3,400lb NASCAR-spec race car at over 200mph around 42 other drivers who want to win jut as bad as you do? And no downforce? What the hell? Have you seen the amount of fins, the front lip, and wings on a NASCAR-spec race car? Good god, I've seen some outrageous claims to why people hate NASCAR, but your's tops them all.

          I agree. I love when idiots say They're just "driving around in a circle." Derp Derp. How hard could that be? My point was that if it was so easy, F1 driver Montoya would be winning every race.

          @Elmo
          @Rayvan, sure they drive in circles but nobody said Nascar is easy to WIN because there are less variables during a race than an F1 race. Yes the tracks are all different in Nascar but not buy much as compared to F1 where every track is different in location, length, weather, and configuration that can affect a driver.

      She caught my eye a few months ago and she IS smoking hot. FACT. She can also drive FACT. Danica you have the body of a 12 year old and the personality of a rattle snake. You and Dale Jr are a perfect marriage.

        Then you would probably like Danica better, since she has the figure of a 12-year-old boy.
