Recently retired professional racing driver Danica Patrick is hosting the 2018 ESPYS awards event. In Los Angeles, Patrick will steer the live 3-hour event that honors top sports athletes, teams and performances, and presents the Arthur Ashe Award.
The week before the ESPYS, Patrick was in Tahoe with her new boyfriend, NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers. (Although they just started dating in February, they met at the ESPYs in 2012!) While in Tahoe, Patrick says she was sad to leave a day early but had to get to Los Angeles for “four solid days of prep” for the hosting gig. But she was prepping before that, in Tahoe. While exercising, she sweat while wearing her wig prep braids. See below. The 2018 ESPYS will broadcast live on Monday, July 16 at 8pm on ABC.
