NASCAR Drivers Land Some Great Looking Women
Not too many folks outside of NASCAR know what drivers do on a regular basis. Well for those that do, it should be no surprise that they end up with some good-looking women.
In many cases, when women date athletes, they do it because they're rich. Sure, NASCAR drivers are rich, but they aren't at the point where they live in multi-million dollar mansions like Shaquille O'Neil does. A guy like Kasey Kahne didn't move into a giant house until he was a seasoned NASCAR driver. That's just the first part of the journey it takes for many drivers to be successful with women.
There's some NASCAR drivers that get married to their high school sweethearts just like Jeff Burton did. Some get married too young and then the woman leaves them just like it happened to Jeff Gordon. Luckily for him, he met someone that's pretty darn good-looking. Then there's Dale Earnhardt Jr. Most women race fans would give anything to go on a date with him, but it looks like he's a little high maintenance, and won't go out with any random hot girl.
NASCAR drivers usually have hot wives and girlfriends. However, some get more attention than others. They even had a race for the drivers' other half. It was called the better half dash, and the women showed that maybe they can replace their significant others. However, one must wonder what Ricky Stenhouse Jr. — sorry, Ricky Patrick — would do in that race since his girlfriend is Danica Patrick.

Matt Kenseth's wife, Katie, looks great for her age. After having a few kids (one recently), she still looks great.
Ryan Newman's love isn't just animals — it's his wife, surprisingly enough. Can you really blame him though? After having two kids, her body looks great and she has the face of a 20-year old.
Many people probably have never heard of Lucy Kennedy. Some may not have even heard of her boyfriend, Timmy Hill. Hill is contending for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Rookie of the Year against Patrick and Stenhouse for FAS Lane Racing, and he has a great-looking girl by his side. She looks amazing in that bikini and he's probably loving every minute of having her by his side. They started dating for a year and a half ago, so she got into him a drop after he made his NASCAR debut.
Sam Hornish Jr. is starting to find success in NASCAR after many hard years. Yet, even with all of the agony, his wife has stuck by his side and they have a cute little baby girl too. Crystal Hornish is one of the few blondes on this list.
There's not much to say about Juan Pablo Montoya lately, but there's plenty to say about his wife. Just look at her face; now, your eyes probably didn't focus too much on her face, because we all know that's not the only great feature on her.
Good ol' five-time finally got a woman a few years ago. Well actually, about seven years ago or so, but hey , who's counting? Jimmie Johnson's wife is pretty good looking. He could've done better, but she has a great-looking face. He might have been thinking for the long run, who knows. Either way, she's still pretty cute.
Besides looking like he's a five-year old himself, James Buescher's wife, Kris, looks even younger than him. She is probably the most innocent looking of any NASCAR wife/girlfriend there is.
Pollex is Martin Truex Jr.'s girlfriend, and he did a pretty good job. They've been together for an eternity. Can anyone blame him though? Look at her body. She looks fantastic and has a baby face — the perfect combination. He's gotta pop the question sooner or later.
J.J. Yeley's had a quiet career in racing. He and his wife are very sociable. She's pretty plain-looking, but that's what makes her so great. She's not a super model and they're just a traditional family.
Jamie McMurray's career is turning back into the right direction again. Maybe it has to do with he and his wife having a baby. Yet, even after having a baby, she may not have the best body, but her face seals the deal.
David Ragan's girlfriend is just beautiful. Is any more really necessary?
The boss of the family, Delana Harvick is great looking and she has a business mind. It doesn't get much better than that.
Leave it to Jeff Gordon to marry a model. Ingrid Vandebosch looks just incredible. She makes Gordon look better, and their children are going to look outstanding when they get older. However, she's taller than him — that's a problem.
Grablander is Casey Mear's wife. They had a baby together not too long ago and they make a great couple. She's flat out gorgeous and looks like she knows how to have some fun.
Dr. Lynn Allmendinger
A.J. Allmendinger married a hot doctor. Not only did he get the package deal, but he even gets to have fun with her. Who wouldn't want her to be their doctor?
Like Allmendinger, Carl Edwards married a doctor as well. It's likely he didn't meet her while he was a substitute teacher, but they're from the same town and if she has a good enough body for someone as fit as Edwards, well then good luck to her.
Danica Stenhouse Jr.
This is by far the most hysterical story in the recent history of NASCAR. Danica Patrick isn't just a driver now — she's another driver's girlfriend, and that puts her on the list automatically. She's a bikini model, and she's going to be Danica Stenhouse Jr. Is there anything else we missed?
Denny Hamlin got with a former Charlotte Bobcats cheerleader, and he got her pregnant while they were dating. The two still aren't engaged, but she's just flat out sexy and he's brolic — it's a perfect match.
Has anyone not seen Kyle Busch's wife? How he got with her will never make sense in my mind, but hey, she's hot. Lucky him.
Scott Speed's wife, Amanda, looks incredible. Just look at her in that bikini — she's amazing.
These guys have some bruises
Athletes are just simply crazy as can be. Every year, the sporting world witnesses some crazy things. Who would have thought that the time would come where American sports would be known throughout global markets just as they are in America.
Some athletes are crazier than others. A few of them don't have limits. However, either way, it's plenty of fun to watch wackos in the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, etc. fight over the silliest things. Whatever it is that these guys do, they're pretty tough.
Fans seem to focus on the physical toughness of athletes and don't pay much attention to the mental toughness which it takes to be a top tier athletes. The folks on this list aren't just brutal physically, but mentally as well. The intimidation factor has a lot to do with being tough and it definitely has a lot to do with the amount of success they have throughout their career.
She may be in the WNBA, which is considered a joke of a league to most fans, but she's one heck of an athletes and can probably outplay a vast majority of players in the NBA. Candace Parker is a true athlete and is highly respected within her sport as she only has four years of experience. She's probably the toughest female basketball player there is and her stats prove just that.
The No. 2 tennis player in the world, Roger Federer, is pretty tough for the sport he plays. Just looking at the guy is intimidating, imagine being on the same tennis court as him.
Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh
They may be the best duo in Olympic Women's Volleyball history. Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh are simply unstoppable. Though the two have participated in their run in the Olympics was amazing. They were probably the toughest female volleyball players within the past hundred or so years to say the least.
Mike Trout is going to be a triple crown candidate if he can play a full 162-game schedule. Trout is an all around athlete and his natural ability to crush a baseball nearly a third of the time he swings the back is absolutely ridiculous, especially for a rookie. The guy is tough and aggressive which is going to make him an unbelievable athlete once he gains even more experience.
Arguably the best Soccer player in the world, Lionel Messi is pretty tough. The guy gets whacked around all the time and still has the ability to be the best Soccer player in the world, if that isn't intimidating, then what is?
The leader of the Washington Capitals, Alexander Ovechkin is simply one of the best players in the NHL. Ovechkin has a few teeth knocked out and is feared by his competitors for his crazy ability to score on the ice.
Kobe Bryant has been playing basketball for quite some time and is still capable of making moves such as the one seen above. He's still able to box out guys larger than him and can fight off injuries making him one of the toughest players in the NBA.
After all that he's been through, Josh Hamilton is truly a humble man. Hamilton is a case of a guy going from zero to hero and playing baseball has certainly helped him on the way to sobriety. Hamilton is one of the most feared players in the MLB as his outrageously accurate arm strength combined with his speed and hitting ability have ultimately created a monster of an athlete.
Besides rushing for just over 1,500 yards for the first time in his career, Jamaal Charles proved that he's one tough guy. Besides becoming a leader on the worst team in the NFL, Charles was able to fly right through all those giant Defensive Tackles throughout the year while dealing with a knee and neck injury, coming off knee surgery after the second week of the 2012 season.
The Los Angeles Lakers big man is pretty tough, not just because of his size, but because of his work ethic as well. Howard has been dealing with that terrible situation in Los Angeles and has been battling a shoulder injury throughout the season and has still been able to perform at a high enough level to get him elected as a Western Conference starter in the All Star game.
Probably one of the top-five quarter backs in NFL history, Peyton Manning has gained the respect of practically every single player in the NFL and is an intimidating factor when opposing teams face the man that lead the Denver Broncos to the playoffs after coming off a neck injury in 2012.
One of the best scorers in the recent years of the NHL, Sidney Crosby isn't afraid to throw guys into the boards just to make sure his team wins.s just to make sure his team wins. Crosby is one of the most versatile athletes in the league and can definitely toughen out any NHL player on any given day.
Dwayne Wade is a beast. Every single NBA fan knows what the guy can do on any given night. The man isn't afraid to jump over anyone to score and his match-ups against Kobe Bryant are just insane.
He's going to be the next Michael Strahan. Well, maybe not a talk show host but football wise he definitely has that label set for the rest of his career. Justin Tuck was able to sack some of the best quarter backs in the NFL over the past few years and has the ability to break through offensive linemen better than most defensive ends will ever have in their careers.
The Canadian guy from South America is unbelievably tough. Steve Nash is tough enough to even put his nose back into place after having it broken by Derek Fisher a few years ago. Fishera few years ago. The guy is just flat out tough, he may not look it, but he is. Oh by the way, he's a pretty good point guard too.
The "king." LeBron James is totally insane. He's the most versatile player in the NBA and is arguably the best player on the planet behind Michael Jordan. We don't even need to get into how tough this man is, just watch the NBA finals from last season to figure it out.
If the guy wasn't so violent, he would probably be an even better player, but he's still exceptional. Ndamukong Suh has 22 sacks in his first three seasons and has only missed two games due to a suspension for being a dirty player. The man can literally yank someone down with his pinkie finger probably, that's how strong he is.
It's sad that the Super Bowl is going to be his last NFL game. Well, not really considering if he wasn't an athlete he would have probably been locked up in jail. However, he's straightened out his life and now he's one of the most feared linebackers in the NFL.
Floyd Mayweather Jr.
The guy is an undefeated boxer and more than half of his wins has been by knockouts, does it get any better for Floyd Mayweather Jr.? When the guy enters the boxing ring, the fear in his opponent's eyes sets in and Mayweather does his job just like he was trained. The guy is insane and is beyond tough.
Every goalie in the NHL
Sports fans don't give the NHL much attention unless they like hockey, but what they don't realize is, the NHL season is probably more grueling than any other sport in America. NHL goalies have the toughest job in all of sports. Every single one of the goalies has a three in wide rubber puck smacked at their bodies and faces at nearly 100 mph. Imagine what kind of reflexes that takes. It's pretty sick what those guys can do and definitely isn't easy considering they're on their knees probably more than anyone else, well maybe not that pathetic loser begging to get his woman back.
15 of the most entertaining athletes on Twitter
Twitter has grown to be an excellent place for athletes to show their true colors outside of their respective sports. Since the social media network started in 2006, over 7,000 athletes have started accounts to increase fan support.
Every sport has been encouraging the use of social media networks, including Twitter, in order to give the fans a larger voice. Fans are now able to have discussions with their favorite athletes within the 140 character limit that is available to everyone on the site. If some fans are lucky, their favorite athletes may even "follow" them which enables them to message them whenever they please to do so. This has worked in the favor of several athletes throughout the last few years as some have become fan favorites due to their use of self exposure on the site which now is the host to over 500 million people across the globe.
However, even though Twitter has plenty of benefits, it has gotten numerous athletes in serious trouble. There aren't any filters on Twitter which means once they click the "Tweet" button, that could lead to possible allegations which could get one fined, or even fired. Some athletes have even been fined for using Twitter before an event, or even on the sidelines during events which have been added to several league-rule books, deeming the use of a mobile device as prohibited.
Twitter has expanded the sports world in more ways than not as some have shown they are just like regular people. Most athletes Tweet about their everyday lives with the occasional contest for fans or any other thing that they can do which can involve the fans even more.

After winning the Cy-Young Award in probably the best comeback story of all-time, R.A. Dickey's popularity on Twitter isn't as immense as other top athletes, but he is rather amusing. Dickey uses Twitter pretty often to make his voice heard about important topics such as the Hurricane Sandy efforts, but also jokes around such as posts about local sports teams within the New York City area.
His user-name on Twitter is exciting by just looking at it, "BizNasty2point0." Paul Bissonnette, a Left Wing in the NHL, is one of the most hysterical hockey players on Twitter as he posts videos of hockey fans and usually re-tweets a lot of people. Bissonnette also follows his peers which has helped increase his list of followers to over 350,000 people.
Logan Morrison enjoys Twitter a lot as he Tweets to fans several times a day. He even jokes to fans about his teammates such as in this Tweet, "Only at home. NEVER on the road RT @Redd_garcia: Didyou always look at gaby Sanchez butt while stretching @LoMoMarlins."
Reggie Bush is a class act on and off of the football field. He uses Twitter to get closer to his fans in an odd way. He even asks people what they are doing on some days and talks about what he does while not playing football, giving fans an inside access to his interesting lifestyle.

Durant has been using his Twitter to give advice to fans on how to follow their dreams as well as showing off his "style" such as new sneakers, hats, or some crazy new apparel he bought.
The former NFL Defensive End, who is now on a daytime television show now, is on Twitter constantly, keeping everyone informed on his opinions. Michael Strahan is a character and it shows as he thanks fans for their appreciation and support as well as the occasional joke which helps lighten up the mood.
Jon Rauch isn't that popular among baseball fans, but his popularity as a relief pitcher has grown over the years. His trademark is tattoo's all over his body which is an intimidation factor for the opposing batters. Rauch usually posts Instagram pictures of he and his family and uses profanity every now and then which is what all sports fans love to see.
Good ol' Ocho Cinco has a very loud voice on Twitter. Chad Johnson posts very often as he gives fans the opportunity to hear practically every thought he has which is rather amusing while reading their news feeds.
It's Tebow Time. Well then again, when isn't it Tebow Time on Twitter. Tim Tebow doesn't joke that often on Twitter, but it is the seriousness of his Tweets that makes him entertaining. Tebow brings religion into play throughout most of his posts as he shows the humane side of his life to fans. One of the most talked about athletes in the country, Tebow has over two million followers and the few people he follows back are usually influential to his career.
The newest NASCAR champion is truly a big mouth. Brad Keselowski was fined $25,000 for using Twitter on his phone inside of his race car during a red-flag just a week before he locked up his first career Sprint Cup Series title.

He uses Twitter daily and talks to fans more than any other personality in sports as he makes his voice heard at the same time of being one of the most controversial race car drivers of all time.
