Danica Patrick silenced critics who said she was just a pretty face by becoming the first woman to win an IndyCar race when she took home the title at the Japan 300. Presumably, she did so with a shirt on and with both hands on the wheel instead of one touching her left breast.
I’ll skip the “rubbin’ is racin’” jokes for now and take you to the details of the race from THE PRESS ASSOCATION.
“Patrick passed pole-sitter Helio Castroneves with just three laps to go to take the lead and pulled away. Patrick and Castroneves had both come in for an extra pit stop after the last caution, giving them both enough fuel to finish the race.
She said: ‘It’s been a long time coming, finally. I can’t say the last fuel stint was hard. We were taking it easy and taking care of the car. I was fast and managing to save fuel. I had been saving a little extra fuel and didn’t want to make the mistake of pushing really hard to get by Helio.’”
Pole-sitter always makes me laugh.
