Sports Fans Select Force Over Tom Brady in AOL Sports' First "Hottest Athlete" Poll

NEW YORK -- AOL Sports today announced that NHRA Driver Ashley Force has been named the winner of the First Annual "Hottest Athlete" Poll AOL Sports users voted on the best-looking sports guys and gals over the last several weeks and Force came out on top. Force, who is the daughter of NHRA racing legend John Force, beat out football hunk Tom Brady, as well as fellow motorsports sensation Danica Patrick, for the nod as the hottest athlete in sports.

Force spent two seasons in the entry-level Super Comp class and three more in Top Alcohol Dragster class before becoming the 10th woman in NHRA history to earn a license to compete in the Funny Car division. While competing in Top Alcohol, she won five NHRA national events including the biggest event in the sport, the 2004 U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis. Ashley, and her father John Force, made racing history this past April when they became the first father and daughter to race against each other. Ashley won the race and advanced to the semifinals where she tied for the highest ever Funny Car event finish for a female.
