Danica Patrick's racing career has sped by at 200mph.
The female speed demon will take her final ride as a pro at Sunday's Indianapolis 500. Patrick will start in seventh place as she looks to grab the checkered flag to cap a decorated 13-year professional career.
Patrick won't be stuck in idle for long though. She will likely hit the media circuit quickly to promote various business interests such as a winery and a cookbook.
Patrick's final ride made TheStreet recall a hilarious exchange we had with her back in the fall. Asked by editor Michelle Lodge on whether she was a car person, Patrick tossed a curveball:
"I'm just not a car person. I'm not into buying rare cars, fixing up a car, talking about cars. If someone says, 'I got a V-8 Hemi,' whatever. I don't know what the heck to say. "A lot of guys get along with their crews because they're gear heads. I'm not. In this capacity, I am a girl, I am a little bit different. Even though I'm not into cars, it doesn't mean that I'm not well-equipped to drive a car, do that job and the things I enjoy and love about the job."
The love for Lamborghini's is something Patrick shares with Indy Car legend Mario Andretti. TheStreet visited Andretti's home several months ago, a day after he took delivery of a sweet new Lambo.
