For our long-running series, “My Favorite Race,” this time it’s Danica Patrick who talks about that impactful day in the 2005 Indy 500 when she led the race and finished 4th—still the highest- placing woman in the “500” to date.
The imminent demise of America’s great sports car race—The 12 Hours of Sebring—was predicted for 1972. However, not only did that thankfully not happen, but the battle between the factory Ferraris and Autodelta’s Alfa Romeo T33/TT/3s fizzled, along with one of the race favorites being disqualified for unsportsmanlike conduct. Wait until you read who it was!
