Patrick never won a race in NASCAR, but she has competed well in Indy Car and remains the only woman to ever win a race on Tour.

Patrick, 36, had those same thoughts as she returned to Indianapolis after her 2005 debut at the track that sparked her career.

Despite the ignominious end to her career, Patrick's IndyCar success means she's got a claim to being the greatest female driver in American motorsports. She had one pole - the Daytona 500 in 2013 - becoming the first woman to earn a pole award in NASCAR history.

The 36-year-old will start on the third row after qualifying seventh, and her competitors believe she has the auto to not only compete, but to win. She said that her team wasn't sure what caused the crash, but the data showed "a little lift in the middle, a little understeer, then back to it and it just swung". The Homestead crash was Patrick's 10th race-ending incident of the season and her career ends with crashes in six of her final nine races overall. "When is the anthem?' But I had a lot of my people around me so I was in good spirits". "I'm not going to miss the nervous feeling one bit".

The snippet was posted by ET on Instagram , with the full interview expected to be released on Sunday. Ford says, before outstretching his hand and embracing Ehrenreich in a hug.

Patrick dropped several spots shortly after the green flag, battling an ill-handling Chevrolet for Ed Carpenter Racing. She lost control of the vehicle and hit hard in the outside wall, sliding back down across the track and into the inside barrier. She was evaluated at the care center and released. I want to cry!

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

Still, she is respected and, in some cases, revered at Indianapolis, where fans remember her leading the 2009 race before finishing third. The 2018 Indy 500 was her first IndyCar race in seven years, and she originally looked promising. She was surrounded by autograph-seekers all month, and she got one of the loudest ovations during driver introductions Sunday. But she said this week that she didn't have any regrets about her career. She plans to focus on her business and entrepreneur opportunities in retirement.

"I wish I would have finished stronger".
