IRL's Danica Patrick In Tampa Area Today
Indy Racing League star Danica Patrick is in the Tampa Bay area today, making the rounds with local media to promote the series' opening event, the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on April 5. Patrick, 26, is arguably the IRL's biggest star. Last season, she became the first woman to win an IndyCar race at the Japan 300. The upcoming season will be her fifth full time in the IRL, second driving for Andretti Green Racing, which is owned by former Indy star Michael Andretti.
