Who is danica patrick dating
Patrick was accepted into the Indianapolis-based Lyn St.
James Foundation Driver Development Program in 1996.
The season saw her secure the first podium for a woman in series' history at the season-opening race in Monterey.
In June that year, she made her sports car debut at the Grand Prix of Atlanta (part of the American Le Mans Series), partnering Jérôme Policand in the No.
80 GTS-class Prodrive Ferrari 550, finishing fourth in class and tenth overall.
Patrick had a difficult season as the Mygale cars she drove did not suit her smooth driving style, and was outpaced by her teammates.
Ford later terminated her program as they suspected the capital they gave her was being misused and felt she was not getting enough technical support.
Patrick competed in Formula Vauxhall and Formula Ford before returning to the United States in 2001 due to a lack of funding.
