NASCAR is a sport all about speed, precision, and most of all: guts. And what’s hotter than a guy, or gal, with a big ol’ pair of cojones? (Metaphorically, of course.) While everyone is gearing up for the Daytona 500 which falls on February 24, we here at SeatGeek are a bit more excited about the eye candy that awaits us on the track. Hey, call us shallow, we don’t care.

NASCAR’s Hottest Drivers

NASCAR hottie Jimmie Johnson.5. Jimmie Johnson
Oh, heyyy Jimmie Johnson. This bearded hottie is #48 on the Hendrick Motorsports team. In the 2012 Sprint Cup, he ranked No. 3, and throughout his total career he’s won 60 races. Not to mention, in 1998 he was named Rookie of the Year, and was the 2009 Associated Press Male Athlete of the Year. So, he’s like, talented. Bring this one home to mom!

NASCAR hottie Dale Earnhardt Jr.
4. Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Son of the late, great Dale Earnhardt, Dale Jr. is obviously a shoe-in on a list of top NASCAR hotties. He just looks like how a race car driver should look. Plus, he has other interests besides NASCAR, so you wouldn’t run out of things to talk about on a first date. Actually, just today he launched a new weekly podcast that will focus on music, fantasy football and NASCAR stuff. I don’t know about you, but Podcasts totes make me swoon. Also, does Dale not look exactly like Blake Shelton?

NASCAR hottie Scott Speed3. Scott Speed
First of all, being in NASCAR and having the last name “Speed” already makes you hot. Second of all, winning two championship titles in 2004′s Formula Renault 2000 Eurocup and German Formula Renault make you even hotter. And according to Wikipedia, he won the races “despite his worsening colitis.” Wait a second — he has colitis? Ewwww. Oh well, he’s married so it’s not like we can be together anyway.

NASCAR hottie David Ragan
2. David Ragan

David Ragan has that popular-guy-in-highschool-who-was-actually-really-nice look. He’s the kind of guy that won Prom King and then went and danced with the handicapped girl just because he knew it’d make her day. That dark hair, those blue eyes. He’s another Rookie of the Year winner, and at age 27 is still just a baby. Actually, that’s the perfect age for him to date me…

NASCAR hottie Danica Patrick1. Danica Patrick
It should come as no surprise that the hottest NASCAR driver is Danica Patrick. That’s right – it’s a chick! Through a curveball at ya’, hey? This race car babe has won a slew of awards since her career began, including 2005 Indy 500 Rookie of the Year, and the 2012 NASCAR Nationwide Series Most Popular Driver. Not to mention she’s cashed in on her good looks and now does modeling and spokeswoman work. After her performance at the Indy 500, Patrick became the most successful woman in the history of American open-wheel racing. So, a business-savvy babe who can play sports and model? I may have to reconsider my sexual preference.
