Danica Patrick's Career Ends With Crash At Indy 500

Patrick then spun into the outside wall of Turn 2 on lap 68 of 200, having dropped her left-front tyre over the white line, but was at a loss to explain the crash.

Patrick added that it was not the ending she wanted for her career.

Patrick, who shot to prominence by finishing fourth as a rookie in 2005, announced earlier this year that she would step away from racing after the Indy 500. Power then held off pole victor Ed Carpenter over the final few laps for the victory.

Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing's Takuma Sato lasted just 47 laps in defense of his 2017 race victory, plowing into the back of a much slower James Davison in Turn 3. "My career, I've had so many wins, so many poles. that everybody always talks about the 500".

Patrick finished 35th at the Daytona 500 in February after another crash ended her run in that race.

Castroneves, who has moved over to race sports cars for Penske and no longer competes on the IndyCar series, has also made his name at the Brickyard with trips to Victory Lane in 2001, 2002 and 2009.


"He won this race today because he was the best", Penske said.

Australian Will Power won the race with Ed Carpenter second. Helio Castroneves, Tony Kanaan, Sebastien Bourdais and Danica Patrick were among those who crashed in single-car spins.

"I'm going to sit up in the "North 40" (the north short chute) and drink beer like the rest of the fans that come out there", TJ said. The restart came with eight laps to go and Power trailing Oriol Servia, Wilson and Harvey.

After she parted ways with Stewart-Haas Racing following the end of the 2017 NASCAR season, Patrick said her final two races would be the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500.

Patrick's highest finish in the season standings was 24th (in both 2015 and 2016), and she had an average finish of 24.1 in her career. He has 34 wins in IndyCar now, tying him with Al Unser Jr. for most on the career list. "It just seemed to come around and seemed pretty late off the corner". "Yeah, it's an entire career", she said, "but what really launched it was this". Power was working on reeling them in when both swerved into pitlane for fuel with three laps to go. "I changed my attitude a lot after Barber, been very positive, had a great month..."
