LOS ANGELES - Danica Patrick is about to rev up the ESPY Awards!
The ESPYs will take place July 18th and the race-car star will be the first female to ever host the sports-centered award show. This announcement follows the news that Danica will be retiring from racing after the upcoming Indy 500.
Danica Patrick herself is a three-time ESPY nominee for Best Female Athlete, Best Moment and Best Breakthrough Athlete. It is unknown if Danica is nominated for an award this year since nominations will be announced in June.
Danica couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity.
“My first ESPYS was 2005, and I have been a fan, coming back every year since. It is the biggest night of the year for sports. Every year I leave feeling so inspired! I am excited to be able to help celebrate, laugh and cry about the past year in sports with everyone. It’s going to be a great night and one full of more than a few surprises.” Congrats girl!
