Danica Patrick ends career in a crash

Will Power

"I was hoping to win", Rossi said. "I've had so many wins, so many poles".

"Man, I just can't believe it", the 37-year-old Australian exclaimed after his winning finish.

Wilson, making his second Indy 500 start and only third career IndyCar Series start, was forced to surrender the lead, pitting for fuel with four laps remaining and handing the lead to Power.

It was the same disappointing end for three-time Brickyard champion Castroneves as he once again failed to capture a record-equalling fourth win in what might have also been his last Indy 500.

Power dominated the final stages of the race, once those taking a fuel strategy gamble had pitted or backed off to save fuel to make the finish - the strongest of which was Scott Dixon. Kanaan led at least one lap in his 14th Indy 500 to break a record he had shared with four-time race victor A.J. Foyt.

"He and I love racing together".

"I can't describe it", Power told ESPN after the race. "I'll look forward. We have to be back next year". But IndyCar has new cars, and the warm, humid weather made handling them even more complicated on the 2.5-mile oval. Takuma Sato's title defence ended on the 47th lap when the Japanese driver crashed into slow-moving James Davison.

New York Jets owner Christopher Johnson says his players can still protest
The league's new policy gives players the option of going to the locker room during the anthem . Khan released a statement Wednesday afternoon.

Patrick, the only woman to win an IndyCar race and start from pole at the Daytona 500, lost control on lap 68 of the 200-lap race, hitting the wall coming out of corner two then spinning across the track before coming to rest.

Now that Patrick's career in racing has come to a close, she plans on putting her focus on her entrepreneurial goals, such as her Napa Valley vineyard, Sominum, which is Latin for "dream". Lots of fun to follow her whole career.

Danica Patrick's career came to a skidding halt after she crashed her auto at the Indy 500. We had two good restarts and I was third and I thought we could make that happen. Over the course of her career, Danica has raced in the Indianapolis 500 eight different times and she's finished in the top 10 during six of those occasions. It's both of them. "When is the anthem?' But I had a lot of my people around me so I was in good spirits".

As she moves away from racing, Patrick has her Warrior clothing line, Somnium wine and her latest book Pretty Intense - a nutrition and fitness guide -to fill her time previously spent racing. She said that her team wasn't sure what caused the crash, but the data showed "a little lift in the middle, a little understeer, then back to it and it just swung".

Among other drivers who exited due to mishaps were three-time victor Helio Castroneves (lap 147) and 2013 victor Tony Kanaan (188).

"It was a good day from a championship perspective but we didn't have enough to win".
