“Patrick Becomes First Woman to Win a Major Auto Race”

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

I can’t even pretend to be a fan of auto-racing, but lots of people seem to love it, and that being the case, might as well have women winning too. Go Danica!

    I actually love auto racing, both Indy and NASCAR, and I ain’t afraid to admit it. I’ve been a Danica fan since her heart-stopping performance at the Indy 500 in 2005. So I’m thrilled that she’s got her first victory, and I look forward to more — hopefully including the big race next month (though I’ll be backpacking in the Smokies so I’ll miss it on TV).

    I’m sorry if I sounded snotty in the post. I don’t like golf or polo either! Backpacking, however, I love. Hope you have lots of fun.

    No, I don’t think you sounded snotty at all. I thought it was cool that you gave Danica some recognition here.

    And I’m totally with you on golf. I just don’t get it at all!
