Danica Patrick crashes out of final race at Indianapolis 500

Alexander Rossi

Patrick competed in her final NASCAR race ― the Daytona 500 ― in February.

"But I kind of said before I came here that I feel like if it's a complete disaster - "complete" like as in not in the ballpark at all, look silly - then people might remember that".

Patrick had returned to Indianapolis to conclude her career at the epicenter of the fame that made it so notable. She had one pole - the Daytona 500 in 2013 - becoming the first woman to earn a pole award in NASCAR history.

But that momentum didn't carry through into the race as she was the victim of the second single-car accident within just a handful of laps.

She decided last season to end her racing career and start the next chapter of her life.

"I've had a lot of good fortune here and still had some this month". "I'm not going to miss the nervous feeling one bit". She was the first driver to make a pit stop in hopes of making a few changes.

Patrick, the only woman to win an IndyCar race and start from pole at the Daytona 500, lost control on lap 68 of the 200-lap race, hitting the wall coming out of corner two then spinning across the track before coming to rest. The television broadcast got piped over loudspeakers as she was trying to talk. I want to cry! Her highest finish in the Indianapolis 500 was third in 2009. Her highest finish in a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race was sixth in Atlanta in 2014, and she had seven top 10s in her five full-time NASCAR seasons that were all behind the wheel of the No. 10 auto for Stewart-Haas Racing.

The win allowed Power to become the first driver to sweep both IMS races in a year, following his May 12 INDYCAR Grand Prix on the road course. She was surrounded by autograph-seekers all month, and she got one of the loudest ovations during driver introductions Sunday. The Brazilian had already had an eventful afternoon - he'd run strongly at the front early on before a puncture sent him deep back into the field, and his contact with the wall at Turn 2 came just as he was mounting a spirited resurgence. Instead, she plans to spend time on her burgeoning business empire and with Rodgers. "But I'm grateful for all of it. Wish I could have finished stronger".
