Forbes: The 10 Highest-Paid Female Athletes

9 of 12

3. Danica Patrick

Paid: $12 million
Age: 29
Patrick continues to split her time between IndyCar and Nascar's Nationwide Series. Her fourth place finish in the Sam's Town 300 in March was the highest finish ever by a woman in a Nascar race. Rumors are swirling that Patrick will race full-time in Nascar in 2011.
