Franchitti wins at Indy

Dario Franchitti won a rain soaked and shortened Indianapolis 500 on Sunday. Franchitti inherited the lead when the leaders pitted one last time for fuel, even as the skies darkened, and then drove slowly to the checkered flag in a downpour when the race was stopped after 166 laps, or 415 of the scheduled 500 miles. Super hottie Danica Patrick was the top woman in the field, finishing 8th.

Sadly, this year’s race sounded exactly like how my rendez-vous with Danica would end up; overhyped, wet and ending pre-maturely.
