Power wins Indy 500

Scott Dixon in his Chip Ganassi Racing Honda during the Indy 500

She's raced in NASCAR for seven years, and announced her retirement last year.

Danica Patrick's final Indianapolis 500 ended like her final Daytona 500.

Scott Dixon #9 driver of the Chip Ganassi Racing Honda IndyCar during practice for the Verizon IndyCar Series Phoenix Grand Prix at ISM Raceway in Arizona. But all three needed enough gas to get to the finish line, and it was Power who was frantically chasing them down.

"Going forward, we have always said if the race were to sell out and we felt like it was something special like the 100th running that we would do it again", Indianapolis Motor Speedway President Doug Boles told the Indianapolis Star, adding that the race was not going to sell out this year, so fans could expect another blackout. "Thoughts went through my mind during the month". It was her first race back at Indy since 2011 and her second finish outside the top 10.

"When he first came here after unification [between IRL and Champ Car] he hated ovals, and now he loves 'em". "I saw an opportunity, that's the time to go, but misjudged a little bit the tires".

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 just can't believe it", he said after the race. "I don't know if we have a tampering rule in IndyCar, but congrats Will". Rossi had no choice: It was hard to pass in the 2018 auto on a day that fell just 2 degrees short - it was 91 - of being the hottest 500 in history. Near-record temperatures at the start created a slick, 2 -mile oval, and new cars with less downforce proved to be a handful for even the most experienced of drivers.

"It's hard to say no to him, isn't it?" said Penske, who already had promised Castroneves a ride for 2019 if he won Sunday. "He will be here next year in one of our cars".

Patrick crashed on Lap 68 of the race, disabling her vehicle but leaving her unhurt.

Patrick was completing the "Danica Double" after wrecking out at the Daytona 500. "It just seemed to come around and seemed pretty late off the corner". But she said this week that she didn't have any regrets about her career. It's both of them.

"I must have screamed a lot?" the 37-year-old Australian driver said at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

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. That led to a series of varied pit strategies and a long list of race leaders, 15 in all via 30 lead changes, many of those coming during pit stops, when teams were employing their chosen strategies, be they fewer pit stops, staggered pit stops or fuel-saving measures.
