Danica Patrick to retire after Daytona 500, Indy 500

Again, however, much like the case is for her Daytona 500 effort, Patrick did not say the team for which she would be driving in the Indianapolis 500.

As far as her Indianapolis 500 history goes, she has driven in the race seven times with a top finish of 3rd in 2009 and just one finish outside of the top 10. Read More
