The Official Danica Patrick Will Win Indy Thread

Sat May 14, 2005 8:32 am

Anyone with me?

Wouldn't it be a great place to get a first win? Looking forward to this years race.
I'm just happy that RR ratings can't be in negative numbers!

Here's to seeing Danica in Victory Lane!

She is on the Cover of the NW airlines magazine this month.

One hot little number IMO . . .

I was always warned about fast women.  biggrin 
For Ms. Danica a lot will depend on her qualification/starting placement. Drivers with considerable experience in other forms of racing have won as 'rookies' at Indy and she does have experience, mainly in open wheel road course racing. She did very well in testing, she has a solid car, good team owership (Indy winner Bobby Rahal), and she did place 4th in a IndyCar race in Japan a few weeks ago. I think she has the best chance to win of any woman to ever run Indy. But even the best drivers with the best cars can get put out of the running by a small part failure, a bad move on the track, or an accident any of which can happen to her and knock her out or upon someone else to lead her to win. Even a top 10 finish in this race full of competitive and excellent drivers and equipment would be great for such a young driver as her.

Last one I can think of is WRONG; I was trying to think of Mr. formula 1 Guy who was with Newmannn Hass.. I would have BET THE FARM he had won Indy his first time out... Nigel Mansell....

From: http://www.indy500.com/news/story.php?story_id=2682
"Q. Have any rookies won the Indianapolis 500?

A. Yes. Eight drivers have won as Indianapolis 500 rookies: Ray Harroun (1911, inaugural race), Jules Goux (1913), Rene Thomas (1914), Frank Lockhart (1926), George Souders (1927), Graham Hill (1966), Juan Montoya (2000), Helio Castroneves (2001). "

Danica once told a great story about when she was racing in Europe. She would go into the transporter to change which apparently had a small dressing area. It seemed as no coincidence that the mechanics would suddenly have to come to the transporter to find some tool whenever she was changing.

She did say that she got used to it.

Maybe that magazine layout is coming soon.

But, she's not Anna Kournikova to me (as in more looks than substance). I really hope that Danica is the real deal and is eventually known for her driving, a la Shirley Muldowney.

This is looking really good for Danica. 3rd fastest in the Friday Practice.

Since only the top eleven spots are open on pole day, I'd say that Danica has a pretty good shot at being in one of the first three rows. I'm going to put her no lower than 6th on the grid.

Now, if it would just stop raining so we could get on with the qualifying.

Pole Day has now been moved to Sunday and will now include positions 1-22.

I still hold to my pick of Danica 6th or better, but the track is going to be green from the rain, so anything could happen.

Just proof that you really can do what you set your mind to and have the talent for.

I loved the part about her being told not to wave to the crowd so that the women would not go crazy and climb over the fences since they now make up a third of the spectators. Think the president of the car club is smiling all the way to the bank now?

Danica fastest in the group one practice at 228.373. Tony Kanaan second fastest at 228.300. No one else in the 228's.

Wonder how her time will compare to the group 2 runners. Hopefully it will hold up!  pray

Oh yeah!!!  veryhappy 

Danica is fastest in the prequalifying practice at 229.880. Dario Franchitti came up second at 229.422. And, Tony Kanaan (who didn't run most of the second half of practice due to being penalized for not slowing down for a yellow flag) was third at 228.920.

Danica's speed is the fastest of any driver so far this month. Way to go!!

Can't wait for qualifying. The first two hours and the last hour look like they are going to be shown on ESPN2.

Go Danica!!!  thumbsup  thumbsup

AWESOME!!

I gotta tell you, this lady can drive. She has the rare experience of having raced in Europe and knows road courses as well as ovals.

Unlike the Lyn St. james era, and perhaps excepting Sarah Fisher, she's inarguably the best female driver out there.

And right now, there's probably not a lot of guys out there that care she's a chick when they see that time posted!!!

Danica's rise is sorely needed and could be a real impetus to bringing some lustre back to the CART/IRL faction.

I am SOOOOOO looking forward to this year's race, I can't wait.  Smile

Go Danica!!

Plus, she's a native Cheesehead, so she can't be bad. Yeah baby.  Wink

Danica has currently qualified 4th. She would have had the pole but for a small bobble in turn one that cost her three miles per hour on one of her four laps. I'm sure they will put her out there for another run. I'm now positive that she will start this race from the front row and it will probably be from the pole position. This is incredible!

Coverage starts again on ESPN2 at 6pm EDT. If Danica does try to qualify before then, ESPN News will cover the attempt live. Too bad I don't have ESPN News. Just have to wait until 6pm to find out.

Danica down to 5th, ESPN2 is stating that she is too "emotionally spent" to make another run. Hell, if you had a chance to make pole and you made a mistake you'd be spent as well... Either way, Rahal needs to tell her that pole means jack shit once the green flag flies in 2 weeks.
