Danica Patrick crashes in Indianapolis 500

In the last race of her career, Danica Patrick crashed as she came out of Turn 2 in the Indianapolis 500.

The victory capped a ideal month of May for the man from Toowoomba as Power tuned up for the Indy 500 by notching up his 33rd career win with a victory in the Indianapolis Grand Prix run on the Speedway's road circuit. There still were a lot of great moments this month, a lot of great moments this year.

Afterward, Powers shared another reason why he didn't want to chug but still had a sip, joking: "I'm not supposed to eat dairy, but I didn't care".

"Please Roger, I've got to go back", he said into a television camera.

It's just his day.

"I guess I'll stop there".

Every company was awarded 30 days' notice to upgrade their policies or they'll need to deal with potential legal actions. Now following that, Nintendo too has announced that they have updated the terms of warranty for their hardware systems.

Pole sitter Ed Carpenter finished second, Scott Dixon was third, and 2016 victor Alexander Rossi came from the back of the field to finish fourth. I was here when he finished P2 in 2015, and in the motorhome afterwards I could see how much that hurt.

"I can't describe it", Power told ESPN after the race. "But I kind of said before I came here that I feel like if it's a complete disaster - complete like as if not in the ballpark at all, look silly - then people might remember that". Power also won the road-course event. Late into the race, everyone was saving fuel, and the guys were telling me that Will and Simon [Pagenaud] were running a lap better than me at that point. But she said this week that she didn't have any regrets about her career.

And although Sunday marked the end of Patrick's dream of winning the Indy 500, she spoke fondly of her history on the track.

Castroneves, who has moved over to race sports cars for Penske and no longer competes on the IndyCar series, has also made his name at the Brickyard with trips to Victory Lane in 2001, 2002 and 2009.

Patrick was in 17th place when she lost control headed into turn two, a theme on this day.

Patrick finished in the top 10 in just seven of her 191 Cup Series starts. "But we had some good moments". Kanaan's crash with 12 laps remaining set up a final restart with Oriol Servia out front. Defending race victor Takuma Sato crashed out just shy of the race's one-quarter mark after tangling with the much slower machine of James Davison. But all three needed enough gas to get to the finish line, and it was Power who was frantically chasing them down.
