Patrick stood stoically behind her bright green race vehicle during pre-race pageantry, with boyfriend and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, her parents and sister by her side.
Power clearly had plenty of speed in the second half of the 200-lap race, but in the end the way opened for him as race leader Stefan Wilson and second-placed Jack Harvey had to pit for fuel with just over four laps remaining. I just can't believe it. Lots of fun to follow her whole career.
"My career, I've had so many wins, so many poles but everyone always talks about the 500 and I just couldn't imagine winning a race in front of a crowd like this". She started the race from the seventh position. She got a one-off for the Daytona 500 with Premium Motorsports and was caught in a multi-car crash just past the halfway point. Patrick's face was glistening, sweat rolling down her back in near-record-breaking heat. Patrick's hair started blowing in the wind, turning her pose into an impromptu photo-shoot - likely her last one in a firesuit.
But it's a race where lots can happen, you can never get content even if things are looking good and you've got a quick vehicle.
"Please, Roger, I gotta go back!" he said.
"We were one of the two most consistent guys, day-in, day-out". She smiled, turned and waved. He whispered in her right ear, gave her a kiss and then smacked her on the butt as she maneuvered to get her helmet on and slide into the cockpit. As the Indianapolis Star noted, this year's race was not expected to sell out, leaving racing fans in IN to either listen on the radio, watch the race on tape delay, or hope to find a way to watch it online.
Carpenter was second in a Chevy and noted just how much Power used to hate the speedway.
Trump seethes over Russia probe, calls for end to 'SPYGATE'
White House allies and supporters have floated the idea that a "human source" improperly assisted the FBI investigation for weeks. According to a USA official familiar with the broader of the two meetings, the briefers did not reveal the name of the informant.
Hawaii volcano produces blue flames from methane
How are scientists able to tell when a dormant volcano will rumble to life? His ankle dangled awkwardly, and blood spurted forth. Residents in the Leilani Estates community have seen their neighborhood transformed by the lava.
Ireland Test debut ends in five-wicket defeat by Pakistan
Tim Murtagh bowled out both Azhar Ali and Asad Shafiq, while Boyd Rankin dismissed Haris Sohail. That wasn't to be the only remarkable moment of Ireland's initiation as a Test match nation.
Patrick's auto snapped loose in Turn 2 on Lap 68 of Sunday's 500.
The "Danica Double" is complete, and with it, Danica Patrick's full-time career in motorsports has come to an end. She was later cleared and released with no major injuries.
She answered a few questions outside the building and then got a golf cart ride for another media session.
"I have plenty of things to keep me busy and that's just what is happening now and doesn't include what I want to do".
"I want to win", Rossi said.
It was Power's 34th career IndyCar victory but his first in the sport's biggest race, coming in his 11th try. Over the course of her career, Danica has raced in the Indianapolis 500 eight different times and she's finished in the top 10 during six of those occasions. She was surrounded by autograph-seekers all month, and she got one of the loudest ovations during driver introductions Sunday.
"What really bums you was this, but really both of them", she said, referring to February, when she crashed out of her final Daytona 500. Instead, she plans to spend time on her burgeoning business empire and with Rodgers. "But I'm grateful for all of it. Wish I could have finished stronger". "A lot of great moments this year".
