Danica Patrick hops into Indy race car for first time in years


Indy month is underway here at the Indy Motor Speedway building up to the 102nd Indy 500. The big story line here all month and certainly on race day will be Danica Patrick as she races for the final time in her career.

Coming here to Indy is nothing new for Danica. She’s been here every year racing in NASCAR’s Brickyard 400, but she hasn’t been behind the wheel of an Indy Car since 2011. So today’s refresher course was very important for her.

“It’s been seven years since I’ve driven an Indy Car here, so yea it’s been a long time,” says Patrick. “I just wanted to get through today and get more comfortable and be able to get on with the job. There’s been a lot of anticipation for this day for me. It’s been since fall of last year thinking about what the hell is it going to feel like?”

No sign of Aaron Rodgers here today but you can be sure he’ll be here on race day. The Indianapolis 500 will be Sunday, May 27th and you can see it on WTVO 17.
