Racing is hard. You have to be in great shape to spend all that time in a car, going around a track that fast, trying to control a big machine at speeds of 200 miles per hour or so.

We know Danica Patrick is a health nut — her Instagram account is full of her exercise videos and healthy eating tips — and she showed one way she’s keeping in shape as she prepares for the Daytona 500.

But she tackled it like it was nothing. See for yourself.

Racing down Daytona beach. 😜
