36Autoblog joins Elon Musk and Danica Patrick in accepting ALS Ice Bucket Challenge [UPDATE]

Watch The Staff Take The Icy Plunge Along With A Mess Of Automotive Celebrities

Unless you've been living in an off-the-grid cabin in the woods for the last couple of weeks or abstain entirely from social media activities, you've probably seen someone you know dump a bucket of ice and water over their own head recently. While the origins of the so-called Ice Bucket Challenge are shrouded in a history typical of Internet memes, its effectiveness in raising money and awareness for the ALS Association has been astonishing.

26Danica Patrick, Brooke Burke pitch Can-Am Spyder as ultimate paparazzi escape tool [UPDATE]

Can-Am has added another pair of stars to its advertising push for the three-wheeled Spyder motorcycle. After showing former NHL star Mark Messier guaranteeing a number of things (playing on his guarantee of winning a crucial game in the Stanley Cup playoffs in 1994), the company has hired IndyCar and NASCAR star Danica Patrick, and model/television personality Brooke Burke to talk about the Can-Am Spyder's talents as a paparazzi escape vehicle.

15Daytona 500 rain delay leads to confusion, but a winner is crowned anyway [spoilers]

One of the sponsors of yesterday's Daytona 500 NASCAR race broadcast on Fox was the movie Noah - yeah, the same Noah who had to build an ark to get through the worst rain delay ever. Fitting, then, that this year's race would be halted after 38 laps due to severe rain and the threat of even more dire weather. The interruption lasted a little more than six hours, during which time Fox aired a replay of the 2013 race, along with a crawling caption along the bottom of the screen that read, "You are

81King Richard getting Petty with Danica Patrick slam

Richard Petty (pictured above) made some rather disparaging remarks about IndyCar veteran and current NASCAR driver Danica Patrick (inset) while at the Canadian Motorsports Expo, implying that the 31-year-old could only win a NASCAR race if the rest of the field stayed home. Patrick's best NASCAR finish was eighth place at the 2013 Daytona 500, where she recorded the first pole position for a woman in the sport. She also led the race briefly.

14Danica Patrick gets ridiculous new body for Super Bowl spot

For a number of years, the annual batch of Super Bowl ads has brought with it a risque spot from GoDaddy that features Danica Patrick, an online-only "red band" version and controversy. This year could be different, even as we get to see more of Danica's body than we ever have before - perhaps because GoDaddy has decided to humorously, instead of salaciously, advertise what it can do for you.

64Danica Patrick not a big fan of Jay Mohr's humor at NASCAR banquet

Friday was the night of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series annual Champion's Awards banquet, and the host, comedian Jay Mohr, cracked off some jokes about Danica Patrick that visibly rubbed her (and her fellow NASCAR-driver boyfriend, Ricky Stenhouse, Jr.) the wrong way.

15Fortune ranks 10 most powerful women in autos [UPDATE]

With talk of Mary Barra as one of four potential successors to Dan Akerson as CEO of General Motors, it seems like ripe time to take a step back and acknowledge the most powerful women in the auto industry. Fortune made that easy for us by compiling a top-10 list, and sitting at the top is no other than Mary Barra.

38Danica Patrick will host American Country Awards [w/video]

NASCAR and IndyCar superstar Danica Patrick will step out of her role as a racecar driver and back into the role of television presenter for the second time this year. No, not for a GoDaddy commercial, Patrick will co-host the American Country Awards show. She'll be sharing the stage at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas with country music's Trace Adkins on December 10, following her stint as presenter for the ESPN ESPY Award show in July.

33PBS Documentary 'Makers' Puts Spotlight On Danica Patrick

Profile airs two days after her anticipated Daytona 500 appearance

Danica Patrick is accustomed to hearing the word "first" attached as a suffix to her name. She's the first woman to win a race in the IndyCar series, first woman to finish among the top three in the Indianapolis 500, first woman to win a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series pole.

34Race Recap: 2013 Daytona 500 runs 200 laps, six of them count [spoilers]

It's been a huge month, leading up to the Super Bowl of NASCAR, the Daytona 500. This is the first year of the new Car of Tomorrow, the "Gen Six" car, and all of the drivers have been trying to figure out its intricacies. The Ford Fusion and Chevrolet NASCAR SS has joined the field and its street-legal equivalent, the SS, was introduced. A huge wreck in the Nationwide Series race the day before the Daytona 500 tore a car in half, tore a hole in the fence, sent car parts flying into the crowd and

81Danica Patrick becomes first woman to win Sprint Cup pole

196.434 miles per hour. That's the top speed hit by Stewart-Haas racing driver Danica Patrick during Saturday's qualifying for the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway. Not only was that speed good enough to earn Patrick pole position for the race on Sunday, February 24, it is the fastest speed recorded in qualifying for Daytona since 1990.

243Slate argues Danica Patrick is putting the women's movement back [w/poll]

Danica Patrick has been a lightning rod for both praise and criticism throughout her objectively successful, decade-long career as a racing driver. Putting to the side for a moment that it is still very rare for a woman to get a drive in a top-tier series, something that Patrick first managed back in the 2005 IRL season, her successes are still impressive. Patrick is the only woman to ever win an IndyCar race, hold the best finish ever by a woman at the Indy 500 (third) as well as being the only

11Watch Kyle Petty sing a ballad about Danica Patrick

There are undoubtedly many male NASCAR fans who have become smitten with Danica Patrick, but Kyle Petty might be one of the oldest. Petty, 52, serenaded Patrick, 30, on Speed Channel's NASCAR Trackside show before her appearance as a guest.

52Danica Patrick walks away from big crack-up in Daytona

If "rubbin is racin'!", an incident during the Gatorade Duel races to determine starting spots for this weekend's Daytona 500 NASCAR race also proves that rubbin' is wreckin'. With just two corners to go, Danica Patrick was running near tenth place down on the inside of a tightly packed field. Above her, Jaime McMurray bumped Aric Almirola, who then bumped Patrick and sent her careening into the infield wall at about 200 miles per hour.

163PSA: Danica Patrick prefers being called "pretty" rather than "sexy"

As Danica Patrick prepares for her first NASCAR Sprint Cup race next weekend in the Daytona 500, she's apparently taking advantage of the publicity to try to remediate her image. After seven years of promoting her attractiveness with nearly equal billing to her race driving acumen, Patrick has asked the media to quit calling her "sexy."

23Danica Patrick making NASCAR Sprint Cup debut at Daytona 500

It's official, ladies and gents: IndyCar starlet Danica Patrick is moving up to the big leagues in NASCAR. The official announcement came in over the weekend that Patrick will be making her Spring Cup debut at no less lofty a race than the Daytona 500 come February 26, where she'll be driving for Stewart-Haas Racing.

32Danica Patrick switching to NASCAR, keeping Indy 500

Danica Patrick is no stranger to NASCAR, but her regular ride is in the IndyCar series. That looks like it could be about to change, however, as Dale Earnhardt Jr. wants Patrick to join his JR Motorsports team as a full-time member. Running the entire 2012 Nationwide series will certainly take up the majority of her time, but it appears Danica will still be able to schedule seat time in her IndyCar racer.
