Danica At Speed

Motegi, Japan

Danica Patrick ran a swift and smart race for her first victory, which came in the last-ever Indy Racing League event (it's now combined with Champ Car and called "Indycar"). All of the race cars in the series use Dallara chassis, Firestone tires and naturally-aspirated Honda "Indy V8" engines which produce about 650-horsepower. This kind of racing, with these super-light, super-fast and super-twitchy race cars, is not for the faint of heart of any sex!
