Danica Patrick Goes Undercover as a Lyft Driver, Gives Passengers a Scare (Video)
There are a whole host of reasons why Danica Patrick isn’t your typical Lyft driver, but the most glaring is that she’s a damn race car driver, a skill set that probably doesn’t mesh well with the ridesharing industry. However, the good folks at Lyft embraced this difference and sent the racing icon out to pick up some passengers and engage in some pleasant conversation.
And, naturally, they got it on tape.
She took to the streets of Charlotte to pick up fares, so she couldn’t get TOO crazy with the driving, but she was able to raise an eyebrow or two without putting anyone in danger.
Points for having her dress like every Lyft driver I’ve ever had. I’m not sure if it was intentional, but kudos to the stylist regardless.
She’s definitely an upgrade over getting stuck with Jerry Rice in Bay Area traffic, wouldn’t you say?
