Danica Patrick is the first female winner in IndyCar history. YES!
At the Indy 300 in Japan, she beat out pole sitter Helio Castroneves by nearly six seconds with just over two laps to go. If you're not into racing, he won Dancing With the Stars.
What you don't see in the photo is Helio holding his tiny 2nd place trophy in his hands. Being a good sport, he looks down at it, like "That's all I get?" Danica then leans on her beast of a trophy, which you see here. Gotta love Helio.
I have completely lost my voice so I couldn't scream, but I was crying (with pride!) while watching her race to victory. Good for her.
