And the winner is: Dan Wheldon

What a crazy race at the Brickyard. You had all the fuzz about Danica Patrick, the Penske Perfect thing and just plain old Indy-stuff. At the end the win went across the pond to Dan Wheldon of the UK. But I'm sure this race will be remembered by the performance of Danica Patrick. She came in 4th, as a rookie, as a woman and while stalling it in the pits and a spin near the end placing her in 16th place she came through big time. She also became the first woman to lead the race. Not just for a lap, but for quite a number of laps. She's now not just a woman-driver, but a driver. And a good one at it. We will hear a lot of her in the coming years.

But, before we forget, I have to congratulate Dan Wheldon and Andretti Racing for winning the 2005 Indy 500. Let the milk flow...
