The Danica Patrick Breakthrough

Racecar team owner, David Letterman, must be very happy today. Yesterday he fielded a fleet of three cars from his team Rahal in yesterday's Indianapolis 500, and a young woman, 23 year old Danica Patrick just narrowly missed winning the race. This was a great breakthrough for women in this motorsport. Patrick is far and away the greatest female driver in the world right now.

In 1992, at the age of 10, Patrick became very interested in gokarts. And by 1993, she was the secondplace winner a MidWest class of karting. By 1998, she became an international racer competing in racing of small automobiles in England. And between 2000 to 2001 became a top racing driver in England and award winning. In 2002, she signed a multi-year contract with David Letterman's Team Rahal, and has since proven her mark as far better than most men competing in racing today.

This is a huge breakthrough for women to be all they can be. It is refreshing to see another barrier fall, where in the case of Danica Patrick, the best man to race for Team Rahal, is a woman. Go Danica Go. The best is yet to come!
