She Won!

We’ve always been fans of Indy Car Racer Danica Patrick. Indeed our first post ever was about car racing and ended with “Go Danica!” After consistently finishing in the top 10, today Danica won her first Indy Car race and became the first woman ever to win a race in a major closed-course racing series. As sports reporter Bruce Martin wrote “Patrick is now more famous for her racing skill than for her stunning beauty that graced the pages of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Edition.”

And Danica now that you’ve won, you may want to follow the example of drag race champion Shirley Muldowney. The press had christened her “Cha Cha.” In her first interview after winning the championship, a reporter called Cha Cha. She took a long look at him and said “My name is Shirley”.
