Patrick qualifies for Indy 500

INDIANAPOLIS -- Danica Patrick has taken advantage of a second chance and qualified for the Indianapolis 500 on May 29.

IndyCar's most marketable personality is in the 33-car field with a four-lap qualifying average of 224.861 mph, the second fastest of the day.

It wasn't easy. Patrick pulled out of the qualifying line when her car failed inspection, then had to wait through two rain delays before making a qualifying attempt. At one point, it looked like Patrick might not even get that shot.

When the track dried, Patrick quickly got up to speed and qualified 26th, the middle of Row 9. Paul Tracy has the day's fastest speed, 224.939, and Team Penske driver Ryan Briscoe will start on the outside of Patrick at 224.630.
