I missed the Indy, but I do have it on VHS. Reading the reports, Danica Patrick had a very strong run, but she made some big mistakes. She qualified well, starting in 4th. During a pit stop, however, she stalled her engine, and dropped to 16th.
She fought back up to 7th, and then during a yellow flag she lost control of her car, tangling with Tomas Scheckter.
Somehow, she managed not to stall her engine or hit anything else, and her pit crew quickly repaired the front end of her car.
She surged to lead the race after the field went in for fuel, but because she didn't she couldn't run full out, and finished 4th.
