How sweet it is! as The Great One used to cry.

Danica Patrick won the Indy Japan 300, and became the first female driver in IndyCar history to savor the soaking of white sparkling victory from a bottle.

Using a timely refueling strategy by the Andretti/Green Team, Danica outlasted the big boys in her 50th career IRL start on the 1.5-mile Twin Ring Motegi oval.

When she removed her racing helmet she was crying. And how wonderful it was when congratulations swarmed about her that she turned to her mother and received a lingering hug.

Wow! I don't follow racing any more (since the death of De Angelis) but this is great news! I wonder what the refuelling strategy is.

Attempting to remember something from a geology class ... I seem to recall the largest U.S. earthquakes, contrary to public thought, have occurred in the Midwest. Even the Heartland isn't safe!
