Danica Patrick poses for 2009 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition

IndyCar driver Danica Patrick has once again gotten rid of racing gear to pose for the Sports Illustrated’s annual swimsuit issue.

Patrick’s last year appearance came right before her 2008 Indy Japan 300 victory – her first IndyCar win. She has also earned Rookie of Year for the 2005 Indianapolis 500 and the 2005 IndyCar Series season.

This year 26-year old Patrick returns for the 2009 issue for the magazine showing off her long legs next to a Shelby Cobra replica. Check out the SI Swimsuit 2009.

You can check out a video of the photo shoot after the jump.
