Danica Patrick can't explain crash in final Indy 500

Danica Patrick's racing career came to a crashing end on Sunday when her vehicle slammed nose first into a wall before the midway point of Indianapolis 500. She lost control of the auto and hit hard in the outside wall, sliding back down across the track and into the inside barrier. She finished in the top 10 at Indy six different times.

Starting on the outside of row one alongside Carpenter and team mate Simon Pagenaud, Power steered well clear of trouble through seven cautions and then pounced when he had his chance in the final laps.

Patrick's No. 13 Ed Carpenter Racing Chevrolet spun on its own during Lap 68 of 200 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, slamming into an infield wall. "My career, I've had so many wins, so many poles. that everybody always talks about the 500". Patrick became the first woman to win an IndyCar Series race in 2008 when she won the Indy Japan 300. She has not competed at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway since 2011, as she moved over to NASCAR for the intervening years.

And although Sunday marked the end of Patrick's dream of winning the Indy 500, she spoke fondly of her history on the track.

Penske was noncommittal about the plea but called Castroneves "one of our best guys".

As Power held off pole victor Ed Carpenter to win his first Indy 500, the 81-year-old Penske pumped his fist in the air and clapped for his driver.

Three-time victor Helio Castroneves also crashed, when his No. 3 Pennzoil Chevrolet spun outside of Turn 4 on Lap 145.

"Please Roger, I've got to go back", he said into a television camera. Kanaan's crash with 12 laps remaining set up a final restart with Oriol Servia out front.

The 30th place result is also the lowest of her entire IndyCar Series career.

Patrick said earlier this week she had no regrets about her career, and that she doesn't think she will have the itch to ever come back.

"I'm not really sure what happened", a dejected Patrick said after coming out of the care center. It seemed pretty late off the corner. It's both of them. "I changed my attitude a lot after Barber, been very positive, had a great month..."
