Danica Patrick finished 4th at Indy......

She was the first women ever to lead a lap at the track. I thought she would run out of fuel.

GO GIRL GO!!!

I thought the NASCAR race would never end. 22 caution periods and one red flag.

Great last lap though.

Being a huge NASCAR fan I agree about Daytona. But the Indy 500 is a great race to watch nonetheless. It is probably only open wheel event that I watch to completion all year.
