“Nothing that was being presented excited me, then about three weeks ago, I just blurted out, ‘What about Indy? Let’s end it with the Indy 500,”’ she told the AP. “This ignites something in me. But I am done after May. Everyone needs to put their mind there. My plan is to be at Indy, and then I’m done.”
Danica Patrick first gained national attention when she raced in the 2005 Indy 500, becoming the fourth woman ever to compete in that race. In 2018, she’ll call it quits in the same race that helped make her famous.
