Our old friend (she probably has a restraining order on our asses), Maryeve Dufault, is back in the news today as she prepares to attack Daytona International during the Feb. 18 Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 ARCA race. Of course the only reason we keep paying attention to Maryeve (turns 30 on Feb. 16) is because she has an insane bikini photo collection and we can’t imagine a chick this hot being capable of driving 185mph & not cut us off to make a turn into the mall.
The former ‘Price Is Right’ Barker’s Beauty ran on the ARCA circuit last year where she finished 16th in points, starting 14 races and added 1 top-10 finish. She also had a Nationwide series race in Montreal that didn’t go so well. You might remember this insane driving exhibition she put on in that road course race.
We’ve been a fan ever since. Not that we’d ever let her drive us home on the Pacific Coast Highway, but again, she’s hot so this is exactly what NASCAR needs since Danica Patrick (turns 30 on March 25) continues to get old. And at this point do you even care if you ever see Danica naked? So over that time in life.
Maryeve is even doing the real media circuit, sitting down with Fox News to talk Daytona.
And believe it or not, Dufault finds driving in Southern California more intimidating than competing in Daytona. “Driving in the streets of the Los Angeles is scarier than driving on the racetrack, because you have to worry about the people around more than yourself–there’s some really bad drivers out there,” she said. “On the racetrack, you know that the other drivers know they’re doing.”
Um, ok. By the way, she finished 28th last year at Daytona in her first ARCA race.
