The first Australian to reach Victory Lane at Indy 500 Power's win capped a monumental day for Australian motorsport with Daniel Ricciardo triumphing on the other side of the Atlantic at the Monaco Grand Prix for a sweep of what are arguably the world's two most prestigious races.
"I'm not really sure what happened", a dejected Patrick said after coming out of the care center.
As the race closed in on the halfway point Carpenter was the dominant auto on the track, but he was being seriously challenged by former Indy 500 victor Tony Kanaan.
"I'm a little sad", Patrick said. I just can't believe it. Defending race victor Takuma Sato, Danica Patrick, Sebastien Bourdais, three-time victor Helio Castroneves and Tony Kanaan lost control and wrecked. And it cost a number of big-name drivers a shot at IndyCar's most prestigious event.
Patrick dropped several spots shortly after the green flag, battling an ill-handling Chevrolet for Ed Carpenter Racing. "He and I love racing together".
"You never know how these races are going to unfold".
Patrick closed with one more joke directed at reporters. Defending race victor Takuma Sato crashed out early in IndyCar's most prestigious race.Читайте также: Lava flows into Hawaii geothermal plant
When Sunday's Indianapolis 500 comes to an end, TJ Patrick and his wife, Bev, can return to watching races for their entertainment value rather than the nervous, helpless feeling that comes when they watch Danica race.
However, previous year Patrick retired from NASCAR, finishing her tenure at the 2018 Daytona 500. Patrick had been running near the middle of the pack in the Indianapolis 500 when she lost control, slid hard into the outside wall, then caromed across the track and hit the inside barrier.
Danica Patrick has been involved in a wreck and her #Indy500 is over. She had six top-10 finishes in her previous seven Indianapolis starts but ran outside the top 10 for most of Sunday's race after starting seventh.
Power was trailing Stefan Wilson (who finished 15th) and Jack Harvey (16th) with four laps to go when both Wilson and Harvey had to pit because they were low on fuel.
"I had a great month". It just didn't come on race day.
Patrick said earlier this week she had no regrets about her career, and that she doesn't think she will have the itch to come back. Helio Castroneves, Tony Kanaan, Sebastien Bourdais and Danica Patrick were among those who crashed in single-car spins. Her highest finish in the Indianapolis 500 was third in 2009. "You don't see a guy like that lose it very often".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
