Power sprints to 102nd Indianapolis 500 win

2018 Indy 500 fans

Bourdais had led at least one lap in every race this season, and led for the first time in his career at Indianapolis.

Patrick was completing the "Danica Double" after wrecking out at the Daytona 500.

"I feel like it was pretty unexpected", Patrick said. I'm grateful for all of it. "He's been in his yellow suit - I don't think I've seen him out of his yellow suit since we got here this month".

Danica Patrick trudged out of the infield care center with her head down, mirrored sunglasses covering the disappointment in her eyes. "She's got a great shot because she has a really good vehicle underneath her and a good team".

Patrick, the only woman to win an IndyCar race, had looked to pen a fairy tale finish to her career by adding a second victory but could not even make it to the chequered flag, instead slamming nose first into the wall midway through the 200-lap race.

Iran foreign minister scrambles to China and Russian Federation to save nuclear deal
Mohammad Javad Zarif will later fly to Moscow and Brussels to consult with the remaining signatories to the 2015 agreement. But he added: "If the nuclear deal is to continue, the interests of the people of Iran must be assured".

"Can't believe I came all the way from Toowoomba to be a professional driver and I never expected to be here", screamed Power.
She said that her team wasn't sure what caused the crash, but the data showed "a little lift in the middle, a little understeer, then back to it and it just swung".

"That guy was sitting here this morning before I walked in, sitting in his firesuit next to his engineer ready to go, about 6:30 this morning", Cindric said. And if I win, people will remember that. Patrick started the race seventh and ran inside the top 16 before getting loose and hitting the wall on Lap 67.

Patrick's star rose at this race back in 2005 when, as a rookie, she became the first woman ever to lead laps at the famed Brickyard.

Sato, 41, won last year's Indy 500 in a narrow finish over Helio Castroneves, who was looking to win the famous race for the fourth time.

Patrick was one of many big names to leave the track in frustration. "I just wish I could have finished stronger". ("Please Roger, can I come back", he pleaded with team owner Penske in his television interview.) Fellow Brazilian Tony Kanaan, another former victor who had the lead early in the afternoon, later lost control in turn two and also exited the race. "I'm not going to miss the nervous feeling one bit". "It just didn't come on race day".
