As the most accomplished and recognizable woman in American auto racing, Danica Patrick is no stranger to the spotlight. As anyone who has seen her popular Go Daddy commercials during the Super Bowl over the years can attest, she seems to have a sense of humor about her fame and be quite comfortable in her own skin.

During a recent visit to HufPost Live, the 30-year-old driver chatted with Mike Sacks about how she broke into the testosterone-fueled world of racing, her divorce and her trouble with speeding tickets.

"You have that authenticity, you have that control," Patrick said of her decision to announcer her divorce from husband Paul Hospenthal on Facebook. "It's really for the fans. My fans are very dedicated to me and I have such great ones. They invest in to me. I want to be up front and honest with my fans and we thought that was the best way."
