Danica Patrick is on the verge of making history at the Indianapolis 500.

The 23-year-old Patrick had the fastest lap in Thursday's practice session in preparation for the 89th Indianapolis 500.

Patrick turned a lap of 227.633 miles per hour in a Panoz/Honda, becoming the first female to have the fastest lap of the day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway since Janet Guthrie's lap at 185.607 mph on May 7, 1977.

It's odd but I think she looks better in a firesuit than the street clothes she wears when she hosts The Power Block.

Nice! I remember watching her last year in Toyota Atlantic's(?) Was really impressed with her speed and aggresiveness. She could be a good reason for me to watch Indy for the first time since the split. I hope she blows away the Indy Rookie League.

Too bad she didn't get the pole but 4th is still the best starting position by a female driver. :thumbup:

I didn't follow IRL that much but usually watched Indy 500 and couldn't stop laughing at all the hype around Sarah Fisher, especially after she quickly put herself out of the race. Danica seems like a real deal and I remember one interview in which she said she dreams of F1. I hope she won't stay in IRL too long, she needs to go to Europe and race in GP2. Problem is that without good support they will eat her alive. Maybe Rahal can put her in a good team, maybe Red Bull can help.

Although this outfit isn't too, too bad.

Did they Armor All her pants like they did those tires?
