Danica Patrick on TIME 100 most influential list
IndyCar Series driver Danica Patrick checks in at No. 93 on the list of the TIME 100: The world’s most influential people.

There were 208 nominees in the online poll.

Patrick received more votes than Oprah Winfrey, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, TV talk show host Bill O’Reilly, New York Yankees infielder Alex Rodriguez, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and CBS News anchor Katie Couric, among others.

“I’m humbled and honored to be on the list with so many other amazing people,” Patrick said. “I’m grateful to have wonderful people around me that keep me grounded and in the moment. I know I don’t say it often enough, but thank you for helping me achieve my goals and dreams while allowing me to be myself in the fast-paced lifestyle I lead.”

The top vote-getter was moot -- the 21-year-old college student and founder of the online community 4chan.org, whose real name is Christopher Poole. He received 16,794,368 votes and an average influence rating of 90 (of 100). Note: Everyone moot beat out has a job.

Patrick, who will begin practice for the Indianapolis 500 on May 6, will make a stop in Louisville, Ky., May 1 for the Barnstable Brown Gala, an annual event on the eve of the Kentucky Derby that benefits Barnstable Brown Pediatric Diabetes Research Laboratories at the University of Kentucky.
