After she parted ways with Stewart-Haas Racing following the end of the 2017 NASCAR season, Patrick said her final two races would be the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500.

In the last race of her career, Danica Patrick crashed as she came out of Turn 2 in the Indianapolis 500.

The Verizon IndyCar Series returns to action with the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear, the only doubleheader race weekend on the schedule. Polesitter Ed Carpenter finished in second place more than 3 seconds behind the victor. While the cause of the wreck remains undetermined, Chip Ganassi Racing's Ed Jones suffered a similar incident just laps before without coming into contact with another vehicle. "Thoughts went through my mind during the month".

Power led 59 laps but his final pit stop dropped him to fourth, behind three cars that were trying to win on fuel mileage. 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).

Speaking with ESPN ahead of Sunday's race, Patrick said, "when I'm done racing I hope people remember me as a great driver and I think it starts there".

"It was fun until I got to the top five and then it was stressful", Rossi said.

"I was confident enough to make those moves", Rossi told Autoweek. "I don't know if we have a tampering rule in IndyCar, but congrats Will".

Because, just like at Phoenix last month, nobody passed any more cars and nobody did it with any more panache.

The conditions created a slick, 2 ½-mile track, and new cars with less downforce proved to be a handful for even the most experienced of drivers.

The temperature at Indianapolis Motor Speedway hit 33 degrees early in the afternoon, equaling the hottest 500 on record. Still, Castroneves savored his final moments on the track Sunday 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.

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

Actually, he wore a black shirt to the Daytona 500, so that could be where that photo is from. It's both of them. They just didn't come on race day. "I mean, to finish up at a place that has so many good memories for me, and at the biggest race of the year for Indy cars and arguably the biggest race of the year, period".

France's Sebastian Bourdais, back at Indy a year after he suffered hip and pelvic injuries in qualifying last year, three-time victor Helio Castroneves of Brazil and 2013 victor Tony Kanaan of Brazil also failed to make it to the finish. Kanaan was an early leader in the race.
