    IRL - Danica Patrick FINALLY Wins

    Quote Originally Posted by FOX Sports
    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.

    The 26-year-old Patrick won in her 50th career IndyCar start, taking the led from Castroneves on 198th lap in the 200-lap race.

    "Danica is such a fantastic person and I'm thrilled for her that the monkey is finally off of her back," said Michael Andretti, co-owner of Patrick's team Andretti Green Racing. "We have all believed in her and she proved today that she is a winner. Frankly, I think this is the first of many."

    Dixon took the lead from Castroneves on the 93rd lap in the race rescheduled for Sunday because of wet track conditions Saturday, but gave up the spot to pit for fuel.

    "We led for a lot of laps but came up short," Dixon said. "But congratulations to Danica for her first victory."

    Patrick, who started from the third row and made her final pit stop on lap 148, stayed close to the leaders throughout the race.

    Patrick went from fourth to second on lap 197 after Wheldon and Kanaan went into the pits on lap 196. She was as low as eighth place on the 189th lap.

    "I knew there was a good reason for coming to Japan," Patrick said. "I want to thank my team, the fans and everyone who supported me."

    Dixon was third, 10.0559 seconds behind Patrick. Wheldon was fourth, and Kanaan finished fifth.

    Castroneves, awarded pole position after qualifying was rained out Friday, said Patrick ran a great race.

    "With five laps to go, I was saving fuel," Castroneves said. "When Danica passed me, I realized she was the leader. She did a great job, passed me fair and square and that shows you how competitive our series is."

    Patrick finished a career-best seventh in the season standings last year, and was second in the race at Detroit's Belle Isle.

    At the 2005 Indy 500, she nearly took pole and became the first female driver to lead the race en route to a fourth-place finish. It was the best finish by a woman at Indy, and helped her take rookie of the year honors.
    FINALLY!?! Thoughts?

I once got a blowjob where she used her teeth a little bit too much and I ended up with a bloody dick, I still enjoyed the blowjob up to the point I started bleeding. I can honestly say that I have never had anything I would call a bad blowjob, that wasn't a great experience but up until I started gushing blood I was having a great time!

    Well congratulations Danica. I must say I didn't think it would happen, but I was proven wrong, and I'm happy for her as well as the series. IndyCar, which was already going to grow in popularity because of the unification, just got a huge boost in that department with Danica's breakthrough victory. I'm expecting a larger crowd than the IndyCar series has ever seen (excluding the Indy 500) next week at Kansas, and the 500 itself should certainly expect a quick sellout. I think open wheel racing is soon to return to prominence and Danica's win certainly is a huge part of it. Congrats!
