Danica Patrick made history Saturday night in Japan, becoming the first female to win an IndyCar Series race with her victory at Twin Ring Motegi.

Patrick used fuel strategy to her favor, passing several cars late in the race who had to pit because they could not make it on their fuel. Then, with two laps remaining, she passed Helio Castroneves en route to capturing the checkered flag.

The victory comes in Patrick's 50th career IndyCar Series start.

Patrick came into the national spotlight in 2005 when she finished third in her rookie outing in the Indianapolis 500 when she was driving for Rahal Letterman Racing.

MORE TO COME

She DID have to pass someone at the end to win, too.

Fuel strategy wins races for just about every driver out there. I mean, the last 20 laps of every NASCAR race are about fuel and tires.

Nascar now days is rarely about fuel. You get a few fuel races, but not many anymore. The last 20 laps if a car is not seriously dominating are about people keeping their car off the wall. People drive crazy in them last few laps in Nascar.

No, because the NBA only has two teams involved so they will be there at the end. NASCAR has 43 teams. You need to position yourself throughout the race in order to be there for the last 20 laps. Totally different...in fact opposite would probably be a better description.
