A post shared by Danica Patrick (@danicapatrick) on

A couple of weeks back NASCAR star Danica Patrick took her yoga handstand game to a whole new level with something that looked like it was straight out of Cirque Du Soleil. While Patrick doing handstands is certainly nothing new, she has literally been sharing pics of herself doing them on the ‘gram for months, this one was extra special for its degree of difficulty.

I have now come to fully realize the “why” behind the plethora of various yoga poses, stretches and handstands she continuously posts to her Instagram. It’s because now, at age 35, with a grand total of one win under her belt in NASCAR and IndyCar combined, she is seeing her window for being employed full-time as a professional race car driver potentially closing at some point in the not-so-distant future.

Thus, still having one of the most recognizable names in sports, thanks to her breaking down many barriers for women along the way, she is getting into the fitness game with advice, clothing, and other related items. The fact that she is probably in the best shape of her life near the end of her racing career, while ironic, is a logical step in this life and business transition of hers.

Therefore we can expect to continue to see more stuff like this from Danica going forward…


And less stuff like this…

You know what? I am totally cool with that. You keep doing you, Danica, you’ve earned it. Even if people want to boo you.
