Indy 500: Danica Patrick CRASHES out in final race of her career

2018 Indy 500 fans

"And he did it".

It is the first time that the 37-year-old Power, who started in third, has won the race.

He's done it: Will Power wins the Indy500.

A disappointed Carpenter was left to settle for second, crossing the bricks 3.1s in arrears. I couldn't imagine winning a race in front of this many people. He has 34 wins in IndyCar now, tying him with Al Unser Jr. for most on the career list.

When Sunday's Indianapolis 500 comes to an end, TJ Patrick and his wife, Bev, can return to watching races for their entertainment value rather than the nervous, helpless feeling that comes when they watch Danica race.

Will Power celebrates his win.by dousing himself with milk.

Danica Patrick has been involved in a wreck and her #Indy500 is over. Not long after she lost control of her vehicle it slapped the outside wall.

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. She finished in the top 10 at Indy six different times. Ahead of Sunday's race, Patrick had a four lap average of about 228 miles per hour, earning her a top spot, starting in 7th at the beginning of the race.

"I mean, today was really disappointing for what we were hoping for and what you want from your last race, but I'm grateful for all of it", Patrick said.

Former Spokane NAACP Chapter Leader Rachel Dolezal Accused Of Welfare Fraud
That didn't match up with the income she reported: just $500 per month in child support. "With help from friends and gifts". Then, Dolezal reportedly told the investigator that "she did not have to answer", cutting the interview short.

"I've had a lot of good fortune here and did still have some this month. It just didn't come today". "But we had some good moments".

The victory capped a ideal month of May for the man from Toowoomba as Power tuned up for the Indy 500 by notching up his 33rd career win with a victory in the Indianapolis Grand Prix run on the Speedway's road circuit.

"I can't believe it!" he screamed in the winner's circle.

"Please Roger, I've got to go back", he said into a television camera. I feel like collapsing. "I couldn't stop screaming". The Chevys were the fastest cars in the field and Team Penske had four strong chances to win.

Patrick was one of many big names to leave the track in frustration. Castroneves exited his vehicle clearly peeved, but waved and gave a thumbs-up to the crowd, which showered him with love. "I am at a lack of words today", she wrote. But all three needed enough gas to get to the finish line, and it was Power who was frantically chasing them down.

Castroneves was running near the front before his crash. My career, I've had so many wins, I've had so many poles but everyone talks about the (Indy) 500. Sebastien Bourdais, three-time victor Helio Castroneves and Tony Kanaan also lost control and wrecked.

Pole sitter Ed Carpenter finished second, Scott Dixon was third, and 2016 victor Alexander Rossi came from the back of the field to finish fourth.

Castroneves' bid to win a record-tying fourth 500 ended when he spun exiting Turn 4. He posted throughout the day about the race, and he even streamed the whole event from inside his vehicle.

Two of last year's top finishers ran into trouble in the early going. Last year's victor Takuma Sato brought out the first yellow when he drove into the back of a slow James Davison at Turn 4, and that marked the start of a busy couple of hours for the safety crews.
