SPONSORED DRIVERS PLACE 2ND, 4TH AT INDY 500
Patrick Becomes First Women Ever to Lead World's Most Famous Race
Speedway, IN- May 29, 2005
- Logicalis' IndyCar racing team placed second and
fourth Sunday at the Indianapolis 500, led by efforts of veteran
driver Vitor Meira and rookie sensation Danica Patrick.
Meira and Patrick, who pilot
Logicalis-sponsored cars for Rahal Letterman Racing, were both in
contention for victory in the race's closing laps before
circumstances fell against them. Patrick put more than a quarter
million fans on their feet during her late-race drive to become
the first woman ever to win the world's most famous race, and
teammate Meira missed victory by the margin of an untimely
caution flag two laps from the finish.
While IRL IndyCar Series points
leader Dan Wheldon won the Indy 500 under caution, Patrick, the
diminutive rookie, provided all the excitement the Indianapolis
Motor Speedway could manage by nearly stealing the race. Meira
drove fast and steady throughout the 500 miles to earn a shot a
the win in the late going.
Patrick, in only her fifth IndyCar
Series race, became the first woman to ever lead a lap at
Indianapolis, and tried to hold off the charge of Wheldon, Meira
and third-place finisher Bryan Herta while saving fuel with just
eight laps remaining in the 200-lap classic.
Another driver's late-race crash
kept Meira from making a last-lap dash at Wheldon. The second-place
finish for Meira, who drives the No. 17 Menards/Johns Manville
Honda Panoz, matched his career best IndyCar finish and topped
his sixth-place finish at Indy in 2004.
But it was Patrick who starred as
the feature attraction in a race that included 27 lead changes.
Her fourth-place finish was the highest by a woman in the 89-year
history of the event, and earned her "Rookie of the Year"
"Wow, what a race for me,"
said Patrick after her historic run. "I had a stall in the
pits, a spin and I was leading the race (with 10 laps to go). I
think I showed that I was a rookie with some of the things that
happened, but I think I showed that my on-track performance is
all there. I got to lead my first Indy 500 and actually had a
chance to win the race. I'm very pleased."
"My crew was awesome today
with their pit stops," said Meira, who moved to fifth in IRL
points. "The car wasn't too good in the early stages of the
race. But the car came around and we were fast at the end of the
race. I had to get by Danica and then get close to Dan. But the
yellow came out and I never got a chance to pressure Dan at the
end. Overall, it was a tremendous day for our team. Second and
fourth are not too bad. It isn't like last year when Buddy (Rice,
my Rahal Letterman teammate) won. But they knew we were here."
"There is no question in my
mind that it was a historical day," said Bobby Rahal, the
1986 Indy 500 champion. "Although we did not bring home the
big prize, they knew we were here. I am so happy for everyone
associated with our program. It has been an emotional month for
all of us, but I feel the team put fourth a superb effort both on
and off the track."
