She's raced in NASCAR for seven years, and announced her retirement last year.

The Verizon IndyCar Series returns to action with the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear, the only doubleheader race weekend on the schedule. And once the Team Penske driver took the checkered flag, he and Liz let it all pour out.

"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. Because of the strict blackout rules around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, those actually living around Indianapolis never get to see the race live on television (with the exception of 2016, when the race was sold out).

"He hated ovals and now he loves them", he said.

"Doing anything more than that from the last row was going to be a challenge", he said.

"It's an entire career, but what really launched it was this, so it's both of them", she told ESPN.

"I just can't believe it", he said after the race.




Now, this time, we're going to have a good chat tonight and I'm sure share a beer. Rossi had no choice: It was hard to pass in the 2018 vehicle on a day that fell just 2 degrees short - it was 91 - of being the hottest 500 in history. Alexander Rossi and Ryan Hunter-Reay rounded out the top five. Near-record temperatures at the start created a slick, 2 -mile oval, and new cars with less downforce proved to be a handful for even the most experienced of drivers.

Penske said if Castroneves won a fourth, he'd get a chance at a fifth and the team confirmed that after the race. "He will be here next year in one of our cars". He savoured his final moments today and instead of taking an ambulance ride to the care center, he made the long walk down pit lane, waving to fans on the way.

Actually, he wore a black shirt to the Daytona 500, so that could be where that photo is from.

While it's an unfortunate end to her career, many of her fans took to Twitter to offer support and spotlight her career accomplishments.

Patrick had been running near the middle of the pack in the Indianapolis 500 when she lost control, slid hard into the outside wall, then caromed across the track and hit the inside barrier before coming to a stop on the infield grass in Lap 68 out of 200. "I did have some good moments here this month and I won't forget that, either".

As she moves away from racing, Patrick has her Warrior clothing line, Somnium wine and her latest book Pretty Intense - a nutrition and fitness guide -to fill her time previously spent racing.

Bourdais crashed a year after missing the race because of a harrowing, high-speed accident during qualifying. "At last they had a formula, if you had a good auto, the leader could benefit and pull away".
