Hope Solo has become an instant celebrity since returning from Germany with a silver medal in the 2011 Women's World Cup.

The team came up just short after losing in a shootout to Japan, but they put together heart-wrenching performances after breathtaking moments.

Solo and the other members of the team caught the eyes of the entire country and even won an ESPY for best play after Abby Wambach tied the game in extra time against Brazil.

Since returning to the states, Solo has been featured on the Late Show with David Letterman and made an appearance on the red carpet with Alex Morgan for the premier of Entourage.

Her star appeal is through the roof right now, and her latest trip included Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The star goalie was lucky enough to drive a car as beautiful as herself. She took the wheel of a Chevrolet Corvette Pace Car after getting some driving lessons during the week.

Unfortunately, we can't see how fast she can go as she set the pace at 55 miles per hour for the field before today's NASCAR race.

With Solo's star status at its current height, no one has any idea what will be coming next, but she is sure to make plenty more celebrity appearances in between her games starring with the magicJack soccer club.
