    Danica Patrick makes History

    Let your minds run wild, but it's true:

    [size=13pt]Danica Patrick makes IndyCar history by winning Japan 300[/size]

    By JIM ARMSTRONG, AP Sports Writer

    MOTEGI, Japan (AP)—Danica Patrick became the first female winner in IndyCar history Sunday, taking the Indy Japan 300 after the top contenders were forced to pit for fuel in the final laps.

    Patrick finished 5.8594 seconds ahead of pole-sitter Helio Castroneves on the 1.5-mile Twin Ring Motegi oval after leader Scott Dixon pitted with five laps left and Dan Wheldon and Tony Kanaan came in a lap later.

    At least her Peak Anti-Freeze ads won't be so ludicrous now when they list her as a "Indy Car Champion".

    [size=13pt]Ashley Force’s win also a victory for John Force[/size]

    By JIM PEDLEY
    The Kansas City Star

    John Force has gripped the steering wheel of his NHRA funny car more than 200 times as he staged for final rounds of national events. Every time but one, his eyes have been straight ahead, focusing on the Christmas tree, anticipating the green light.

    ...first victory ever by a female in the funny-car category.

    She didn't do to well today.
    Slipped back into second place in the point standings.
    I missed the final but Neff was in the final.

    :

    Anyways.
    This is really good for her and the sport, not only did she win a sport that is "mainstream" but she did it on an even level with the men.
    Hopefully for her sport she can start to win some more races.
    Good story.
