So far so good. I figured she would be good today....she's very familiar with the track from the Indy days.


I'd like to see her take the checkered today.



Go DP!



PS- No DP haters please!

Hey, she has done nothing but good in my opinion--she has just had bad luck. It sucks but she knows the game and will be ok and work though it. I have to respect the lady--she has learned so much control and done it well!!

Was it confirmed that the shoe caused the issue? Man that's crazy.. who the hell would throw a shoe on the track?

Personally it tickled the hell out of me to see Villenueva loose it there in the end. I would much rather see a NW regular win the race vs a CUP regular or god for bid a road course specialist...
What an azz that Villenueva guy is. He seemed to be peeved at Allgeir for putting the bumper to him on the final laps when he seemed perfectly willing to do the same to anyone in front of him..

Nope. In fact, Tony Eury, Jr. said the shoe had no bearing in her mechanical failures. He hinted that she was overdriving the car. The bracket fell off the truck arm because she was driving into the corners too deeply and constantly wheel-hopping, and the axle broke because she was curb-hopping.

Danica Patrick's car parts problems were not caused by thrown shoe, Tony Eury Jr. says - ESPN
