Brooklyn Decker & Danica Patrick's Race Track Bonding

Posted Sunday May 27, 2012 7:14 PM GMT

Making a post-release promotional appearance for her new film "Battleship", Brooklyn Decker was in Concord, North Carolina for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday afternoon (May 27).

The 25-year-old SI Swimsuit beauty took to the Charlotte Motor Speedway venue in a white dress and bright yellow day-glo shoes while taking on the role of honorary race director and special guest of Coca-Cola.

During her time at the NASCAR track, Miss Decker unsuccessfully attempted to use a jack to lift the "Battleship" car after having joined up with Go Daddy driver Danica Patrick for a pre-race press conference.

After the failed car-lifting effort, Brooklyn joked around with Danica, saying, "You're really good at turning left. She's so skilled and talented. If I can hold your gas can, I'm honored."

"It's incredible. Anytime a woman can do well in any sport it's to be admired, truly," the blonde beauty praisefully added. "To see her transcend, go from Indy to this, it's pretty incredible. She's done it seeminglessly. It's fun to watch her."

Returning the kind words, Patrick - who ended up finishing 13th in the race - said of Decker, "Speaking of transcend, I knew Brooklyn when she was a smoking-hot model. She still is a smoking-hot model underneath those clothes. Now she's a superstar. I watched her from a distance (and thought), 'How in the world does she go from the cover of Sports Illustrated to three huge movies?' It's pretty amazing. I don't feel like there's many more people that have been able to do that."
