The Leading Ladies of NASCAR

NASCAR gets our engines revved up no matter what. Add beautiful and talented drivers like Beccy Gordon, Maryeve Dufault and Jamie Little to the mix and you're in for one hot season. While NASCAR may still be thought of as a man's sport, women are influencing NASCAR now more than ever. From female drivers and reporters to NASCAR wives and girlfriends, women at the front of the pack. 

10. Maryeve Dufault

The perfect blend of model and driver, Maryeve Dufault comes to NASCAR from the racing circuits of Canada. Being a native of Quebec, Dufault can not only pass by other drivers on the track, but taunt them in French while she does it! Regularly listed as one of the best female drivers today, her talents range from being a Hollywood stunt double to doing precision driving for some of the top car manufacturers in the world.

9.  Beccy Gordon

Daughter of the Gordon off-road racing dynasty that includes such icons as Huntley Gordon, "Baja Bob" Gordon and Robby Gordon, Beccy Gordon is as close to racing royalty as you can get. She also has the distinction of having being the youngest player ever to play on the USA National Softball League. She went on to model for clients such as Ralph Lauren and Victoria's Secret. This racing princess has driving in her blood. Too bad IndyCar racer Ryan Hunter-Reay took her off the market in 2011. 

8. Jamie Little

The only thing hotter than this stunning pit reporter is a tire fire. A frequent contributer to ESPN/ABC Jamie Little became known for her reporting on the NASCAR Nationwide and Sprint Series. Not only is she attractive, but Little is also smart. Her knowledge of the sport paid off in 2008 when she won the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race. Not just a pretty face, this beauty knows her way around a racetrack.

7. Chrissy Wallace

This NASCAR girl has racing in her blood. Daughter of celebrated driver Mike Wallace, Chrissy Wallace has gone so far as to follow in her dad's footsteps by winning the American Speed Association Late Model track championship at Lebanon/I-44 speedway in 2011 - a feat her father accomplished 21 years earlier. The blond bombshell is the first female to win that title. 

6. Jennifer Jo Cobb

A girl so nice they named her twice! Jennifer Jo Cobb is taken care of business with her NASCAR team Jennifer Jo Cobb Racing, LLC. A leader in the Camping World Truck Series, Cobb has also driven for the Nationwide Series. Her charity work is what sets her apart from the other women in NASCAR - with her Driven2Honor nonprofit she is supporting our nation's female veterans.

5. Jordan Fish

Denny Hamlin met his girlfriend Jordan Fish while she was dancing as a cheerleader for the Charlotte Bobcats. Now, several years and a daughter later, Fish has become the honorary head MILF of NASCAR. Fish's relationship with Joe Gibbs Racing driver Denny Hamlin began when he sponsored her competition in the Miss USA pageant as a representative from South Carolina - further evidence that southern girls can't be beat.

4. Ingrid Vandebosch

Jeff Gordon may be the current record holder for the most consecutive poles in the Sprint Cup Series, but his greatest accomplishment is definitely marrying Ingrid Vandebosch. The Belgian hottie is not only married to one of the greatest drivers the sport has ever seen, but is also a successful model and actress in her own right. On the side, she designs her own line of lingerie - which just might be the hottest job on the planet. 

3. Jacquelyn Butler

The wife of driver Dave Ragan has the distinction of being one of the fastest wives in NASCAR, having won the 2011 Better Half Dash at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Another Southern belle to grace NASCAR fans with her presence, Jacquelyn Butler was introduced to racing at a young age by her babysitter. A diehard Jeff Gordon fan, she even dressed up as the racing legend one year for Halloween.

2. The Cope Twins

NASCAR's resident hot blond twins are Ashley and Amber Cope. While their appearances in the Nationwide Series may be few and far between, every time they do show up it is certainly a treat for audiences. Even the magazine Maxim took notice of these NASCAR girls, publishing a spread of the twosome.

1. Danica Patrick

The original queen of NASCAR, Danica Patrick has the looks and the skill to back it up. Her success started in the IndyCar Series with a win at the 2008 Indy Japan 300 and a third-place finish in the 2009 Indianapolis 500. Despite being the most successful female driver in American open-wheel racing, it wasn't until Patrick's provocative Go Daddy commercials aired that she became a household name. In 2012 she made the transition to NASCAR through appearances in the Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series. A Wisconsin native, Patrick is the ultimate all-American girl next door with the power and talent to give the big boys a run for their money.
