    Indy 500 history in the making....??

    Under 20 laps to go and Danica Patrick has the lead...

    ..she already made history by being the first female to lead a lap in the race

    Must be like Robby Gordon said yesterday, she has an unfair advantage because she weighs 100 lbs soaking wet.

    mmm...Danica Patrick soaking wet....

    This is great stuff. Even if she doesn't win, it's been a good race IMO.

    She ran out of gas at the end, before an accident ended the race 2 laps early.

    She did very well mind you - to finish 4th

    Danica Patrick was racing in the 500 today? I had no idea.

    Seriously she definitely lived up to the hype.

    Did you know she's 5 foot nothing.

    Wow, short, athletic, good looking and can really handle a vehicle. And she lives in my city of residence.

    If she was tall she would be my dream woman.

    She ran into a bit of bad luck a few times in the race, and every time she was able to overcome it until fuel became an issue.

    Rahal rolled the dice and came up a little short.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    Gosh Josh, I am tall. Of course I don't live in your city. I was athletic (back before you were born), good looking - uh pass, but I can really handle a vehicle.
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    If you were to look at ESPN.com right now, you'd have no idea that Dan Wheldon actually won the race.

    If you were watching most of the race, you'd have no idea there were other cars on the track besides Danica

    And props to Wheldon. Andretti finally won himself an Indy 500. Although it's about 10-15 years late.

    i found this kind of funny, with about 25 laps to go, Danica took the lead after the caution and the announcer, Terry Gannon??, said, and I quote "Can Danica Patrick turn the trick, and win the 500 mile race"

    turn the trick?? not the best words you could have used there.

    It really is a shame that the IRL has basically been reduced to a one-race season. They've got some very talented young drivers on the circuit and hopefully the series can build on this great race and give some prestige back to American open-wheel racing.
