Danica Patrick's racing career came to an end on Sunday at the Indianapolis 500, but there was no storybook ending.

Danica Patrick competed in the last race of her historic carer today as the only woman in the Indy 500. The last two laps, the last lap, seeing the white flag, the checkered, I mean, you can't explain it, " Power said. But he had just one top-three finish at this race before Sunday, and he screamed after exiting his vehicle, mouthing "I can't believe it" before dousing his head in milk. "I'm just so thrilled, 17 wins".

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

Pole sitter and hometown hero Ed Carpenter, who led the most laps of the race at 65, finished second, more than three seconds behind. "I just wish I could have finished stronger".

"To be able to race on Memorial Day in the biggest sporting event in the world, have America the way it is, that's what I'm going to take away from this race, " Penske said.

"That guy was sitting here this morning before I walked in, sitting in his firesuit next to his engineer ready to go, about 6:30 this morning", Cindric said. Power actually swept the month of May at Indy after winning on the road course two weeks ago and his 34 wins tied him with Al Unser Jr. for eighth on IndyCar's all-time list.

I was with him on Friday in his motorhome, and he had an air of confidence about him, really chilled out, more chilled than I've seen him at any 500. "I'll look forward. We have to be back next year".

Ireland abortion referendum: Repeal the Eighth facts

Fuel price: No ad hoc measures; Govt ‘working on a long-term solution’
Currently, petrol is taxed at a little over 100 percent and for diesel , the taxes come at around 66.48 percent. This shows that higher petrol and diesel prices can not be ignored from a political viewpoint in our country.

"I was definitely nervous", she said, "but I found myself most of the time on the grid feeling confused". She had one pole - the Daytona 500 in 2013 - becoming the first woman to earn a pole award in NASCAR history.

Patrick finished in the top 10 in just seven of her 191 Cup Series starts. It was a good moment. Defending race victor Takuma Sato, Danica Patrick, Sebastien Bourdais, three-time victor Helio Castroneves and Tony Kanaan lost control and wrecked.

Power hits the finish line for victory.

Her crash was third in 20 laps of the race, which also took out defending champion Takuma Sato on lap 48 after running into the back of James Davison in Turn 4.

Castroneves was running near the front before his crash.

Helio Castroneves made a public plea to return to the Indianapolis 500 next year, and it appears team owner Roger Penske will oblige.
