Danica Patrick's Career Ends With Crash At Indy 500

Danica Patrick will take part in the final race of her career at the 2018 Indianapolis 500 on Sunday. Here's everything you need to know in order to follow the race live

Patrick then spun into the outside wall of Turn 2 on lap 68 of 200, having dropped her left-front tyre over the white line, but was at a loss to explain the crash.

The 36-year-old will start on the third row after qualifying seventh, and her competitors believe she has the vehicle to not only compete, but to win.

The first Australian to reach Victory Lane at Indy 500 Power's win capped a monumental day for Australian motorsport with Daniel Ricciardo triumphing on the other side of the Atlantic at the Monaco Grand Prix for a sweep of what are arguably the world's two most prestigious races.

She won one race with 21 top-10 finishes and three podiums in her 367 races in all circuits.

Announcing last November that she would retire, Patrick planned to bring down the curtain on her career with the "Danica double", contesting the Daytona and Indy 500s.

"I was wondering if I would ever win it and thoughts when through my mind during the month, my career", he said. She has come to win.

Her day - and her career - might be coming to an end earlier than expected. "I was like, "I don't remember this".


"But probably anything in between might just be a little part of a big story, so I kind of feel like that's how it is, you know".

And although Sunday marked the end of Patrick's dream of winning the Indy 500, she spoke fondly of her history on the track.

Danica Patrick's racing career ended with a wreck in Turn 2 at the track that made her famous.

"He was so determined for this one", she said.

"I can't believe it!" he screamed in the winner's circle. It's fitting because her career began in Indy Car, and while she hasn't run a race on Tour since 2011, she looked more than capable of making an impact at qualifying. She was surrounded by autograph-seekers all month, and she got one of the loudest ovations during driver introductions Sunday.

"I'm very grateful for everybody and for being able to finish it up like I wanted to", she said. "When is the anthem?' But I had a lot of my people around me so I was in good spirits". There are still a lot of great moments. Instead, she plans to spend time on her burgeoning business empire and with Rodgers.
