More Danica Patrick news and this time, it's actually racing related. Last week came a report that Ms. Patrick had inked a multi-year deal with the recently restructured Andretti Autosport, putting to rest the rumors that the sometime-swimsuit model was headed to NASCAR.

Church officials, however, informed their flock that those interested in getting a snap with the great one's ride would require sitting through a sermon first and then sit through another one next week to pick up the photo. The pastor stated that use of the race car in suc
