Historic Indy 500

Inaugural Indy 500 Race on May 30, 1911. Nope, no women here.

This Memorial Day weekend also means the INDY 500 race. I don’t know about the rest of you but I am pulling for 27 year old Danica Patrick who could soon become the first female to win the race. She has already won the coveted Japan 300 race and is now poised to take her historic moment by the steering wheel.

Women were not allowed to race in the Indianapolis Speedway until 1971. Janet Guthrie was the first woman to enter the Indy 500 in 1976

    Looks like she came in 3rd according to Foxsports, but they called it the “Best finish by a woman yet at the Indy 500.”

    It is time for women to join NASCAR Sprint SERIES…They have been in lesser series but not the big time Sprint
