    Post Danica Patrick wins Indy Japan



    The third race of the IRL season and last event before the on set of the merger was history in the making. The Indy Japan 300 was a difficult race to get off the ground though, as rainy conditions cancelled qualifying and caused postponement of the race start.

    Twin Ring Motegi will now forever be the site where the first female driver won an Indy Car event. Danica Patrick sealed the deal after passing Helio Castroneves with 2 laps to go in the 200 lap race. The historical event was made possible through excellent planning and strategy on the part of the Andretti Green team. Danica sat in fourth with 4 laps to go, but fuel starvation forced Dan Wheldon and Tony Kanaan into the pits. Fuel level was also an issue with Castroneves, he was in conservation mode in the final laps.

    Cool Good for her.

    Congratulations to Danica!



    Although... that pic would be a little better if she was wearing a white tee instead of that racing suit thing.

    Dan Gurney didn't know how to open a bottle the right way that or he was excited he sprayed it and it became a tradition i think

    Close-ish

    Gurny and AJ Foyt had just won Le Mans. On the podium they were handed the traditional victory toast. Gurney was not a drinker so he shook it up and sprayed down Foyt and the crowd.
