ESPN The Magazine’s "Body Issue" will hit newsstands on Oct. 9th. The issue includes famous athletes posing nude or semi-nude.  While race fans might not be excited about the prospect of seeing Carl Edwards and Mark Martin in the buff, everyone is buzzing about the rumored nude Danica Patrick photos. 

ESPN has Patrick’s photos under lock and key, but All Left Turns got an exclusive look at the Patrick photos.*  She insisted that her nude and semi-nude photos be "tastefully done." Rather than just another photo spread of her bent over the hood of a car, Patrick turned up the heat with some unconventional photos for ESPN.  Check them out below.
* actually, this statement is false

1. The thinking man’s topless girl
Danica Patrick loves reading about world events in the buff.  Men respect her intellect, which is why she likes to take her top off, climb into a classic sports car and enjoy the latest issue of The Economist. Smart.


2. So hot… in this head-to-toe uniform
Patrick likes to turn up the heat after the race.  To celebrate a good finish, she’ll invite all her hot, single friends over.  They will drink a little wine, maybe a spontaneous pillow fight will break out and then everyone gets "a little more comfortable" and heads to the sauna.  For Patrick, "a little more comfortable" always means changing into her fire suit. Sexy.


3.  Naked on the beach
Patrick knows what sells magazines – nudity.  This is why she chose to bare it all in this photo.  The photographer wanted to show how sexy Patrick is, and how lonely stardom can be.  She is seen here, naked and dripping wet after a dip in the ocean.  Grrrrrrr.


4. "I’m ready for my close-up"
No one on the set could believe Patrick would pose naked in such a sexually explicit way for The Magazine.  Several production assistants passed out from sheer sexiness.  Two female literary agents, on set for business purposes, French kissed at the sight.  A very naughty Danica Patrick stripped down and got dirty in an unmentionable pose that will surely go down in history as ESPN The Magazine’s most erotic image.  Unfortunately, the photographer also passed out from Patrick’s kinky pose and so the task was given to a lighting technician who had never operated a camera before.  This is a close-up of Patrick’s bare left breast. Erotic.
