racing career ended with a wreck in Turn 2 at the track that made her famous. Ricciardo won Formula One's Monaco Grand Prix earlier Sunday. But all three needed enough gas to get to the finish line, and it was Power who was frantically chasing them down.
Power celebrated the checkered flag by screaming into his radio: "Show me respect, (expletive)!" "I'm pretty sad. I'm for sure very grateful for everybody and for being able to finish it up like I wanted to".
"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. The former NASCAR star is the only female driver to lead laps in the Indy 500 and the Daytona 500, creating a strong brand and becoming a role model for little girls everywhere.
She was examined at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway medical center and released.
"Probably went wide in turn three and probably was a little of dust in the tires and then as soon as I came to three and I tried to pass Simon (Pagenaud) but the rear just gave out", Castroneves said.
Power, who started from the outside of the front row of the starting grid, was running fourth on the race's final restart from a caution and had moved up to third with five laps remaining.
"I don't know if fun was the right word; we were trying to take the opportunities that were given to us and execute with that we have".
Because, just like at Phoenix last month, nobody passed any more cars and nobody did it with any more panache.
Penske said if Castroneves won a fourth, he'd get a chance at a fifth and the team confirmed that after the race. The popular Brazilian has been chasing Rick Mears, A.J. Foyt and Al Unser Sr.in the record books and even though Penske moved him to sports cars this year, Castroneves was given a seat for Indy.
During lap 68 of the race, Patrick lost control and hit the outer wall before sliding across the track, hitting the interior wall, and finally coming to a stop on the grass, the AP reports.
While it's an unfortunate end to her career, many of her fans took to Twitter to offer support and spotlight her career accomplishments. It's both of them. It just didn't come on race day.
"I must have screamed a lot?" the 37-year-old Australian driver said at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Bourdais crashed a year after missing the race because of a harrowing, high-speed accident during qualifying. "He hated ovals and now he loves them", said Carpenter, the local boy who had dominated the early stages of the race.
