  • Indianapolis 500: Start time, lineup, TV channel and how to watch live stream online

But she's ready for her career finale, Sunday's Indianapolis 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Many across the country have dreamed and still dream of what it might be like to win the Indy 500.

Conversely, Castroneves will be aiming for a fourth career Indy 500 victory this weekend.

She also crashed and finished 37th in the November 19, 2017 season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, her last race as a full-time driver. Because of the strict blackout rules around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, those actually living around Indianapolis never get to see the race live on television (with the exception of 2016, when the race was sold out). "There's things that I still remember from the first Indy 500 I did that I apply to today". "That would be my goal". I'm not really sure what you can learn from the times today.

For a time Girl Power was all the rage at the Brickyard, with four women sprinkled through the 33-car starting grids in 2010, 2011 and 2013. Her overall performances weren't outstanding, but she did claim a victory in her career and has done pretty well on the open, fast tracks.

While standard bearer is a familiar role for Patrick, it is not one she embraces.

The 36-year-old retires as one of the most prominent women in the sport, even if she didn't always have the success on the track to equal her fame.

She says when it came to racing she never sought out mentors nor does she want the job. And I don't know, maybe she's going to be fine.

News Crew Killed When Tree Falls On Vehicle
Virginia native Smeltzer worked as a photographer in the station's Spartanburg bureau and had just joined WYFF in February. The accident happened on Highway 176 in Polk County while they were covering the impact of heavy rain in that area.

That "something else" was rewriting race auto history. Nobody has ever won more than two straight.

"The businesswoman that she is, I admire", said Penske driver Simon Pagenaud.

Just 5-foot 2-inches and 100 pounds, the diminutive driver asked for no quarter and offered none.

Though Patrick's full-time racing career might be over, her time in the spotlight is not. "If you want to climb the ladder and do great things you have to believe in you and get people to believe in you".

Win or lose on Sunday, Patrick will exit having won the respect of everyone up and down pit lane. Not because she's the only one behind the wheel, but because for more than a decade, she has been the headliner for female drivers.

Early in 2018, she reunited with longtime partner GoDaddy, which previously sponsored her in IndyCar and NASCAR, and drove the No. 7 Chevrolet in the Daytona 500.

"I've had a lot of good fortune here", she said.
