Danica Patrick Wins Her First IRL Race

Danica Patrick won the Japan 300 over the weekend, marking her first major win and the first win by a female driver in IndyCar history. Family and friends in downstate Roscoe, IL were ecstatic after her win. Hopefully this puts to rest the belief by some that women can't and shouldn't compete with men in sports — although you know there are some guys out there who are fuming right now that their favorite racer got beat by a hottie.

The Los Angeles woman in the high speed chase last week might also consider a racing career. Only watched 15 minutes, but she definitely has style :)
