Who says the Indy 500’s better days are behind us? Here’s the driver starting Sunday’s Indianapolis 500 in the 4th spot – Danica Patrick
As the USA Today reports, “the motor sports world is paying rapt attention to Patrick as Sunday’s race approaches,” and it’s not just because of her looks. Patrick is the only the fourth female driver to qualify for the Indy 500, and the first with a legitimate shot to win.
Her racing team, Rahal Letterman Racing, won the 2004 Indy 500, so she’ll have the experienced crew behind her. Other drivers agree, she’s a fierce competitor and won’t be happy with just a top 10 finish.
