Danica Patrick Takes a Spin as a Vegas Showgirl
Danica Patrick got motors revving this week when she tried her hand at being a Vegas showgirl during the 2013 American Country Awards in Las Vegas.
Danica Pulled Double Duty
Danica pulled double duty during the award show as she not only dressed up like a Vegas showgirl for one of the musical numbers, but she was also a co-host of the awards ceremony with country singer Trace Adkins.
Held at Mandalay Bay, many of the big names from the country music scene were on hand for the festivities. The opening bit with Danica and Adkins included the two being pulled over by a police officer that turned out to be an Elvis impersonator. Other gags and skits were sprinkled throughout the show.
Danica teased her Twitter followers with a few hints prior to the show with what might be in store, tweeting that her planned wardrobe for the show included choices that were "Some conventional...some not".
In the spirit of things Adkins donned a showgirl costume too but it's likely Danica who will see a surge in Google searches for "Danica Patrick showgirl" as opposed to "Trace Adkins showgirl" queries.
Danica likely needed to blow off some steam after a tough season driving in NASCAR's Sprint Cup series. She started the season off strong with a good finish at Daytona but it was rough sledding for the rest of the year in her first full season driving in the Sprint Cup circuit.
Her glare-down of Jay Mohr at the NASCAR season-end banquet also held in Vegas made headlines as well. Mohr cracked that he hoped Danica wasn't uncomfortable being so close to the stage as she's not used to being in front.
He got an icy glare in response.
