"I don't want people to forget that I am a girl, I don't think they really can, and I don't want them to because it is part of my story".
Kanaan, who topped this morning's final one-hour of practice on Carb Day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, said: "If you look at our plan for this morning, I said to Eric [Cowdin, race engineer], 'You know this is not a five-hour session, right, it's an hour session?' So we're trying different things".
The race has produced most of Patrick's career highlights and made her one of North America's most recognizable athletes.
While she was on a recent photo shoot in Times Square next to her own replica made of 15,000 Lego blocks, a school bus rumbled by. She moved to stock cars, in part because it was more lucrative, but she did not win at all in 252 races in NASCAR's two top series over nine years.

"In my opinion, Danica has also helped keep NASCAR relevant in greater American culture. Because racing is so sponsorship-dependent, it's exceptionally hard for anyone to make it, but I do think we see more girls at the go-kart and grassroots levels of racing, and hopefully we'll see them climb the ranks".
The king of qualifying, three times Carpenter has started from pole, but there has been no hometown magic and he has cracked the top 10 only three times in 14 races. Children waved at her out the window, excitedly yelling her name.
The 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500, the most anticipated annual event in IndyCar racing, is set to take place Sunday, May 27, at Indianapolis Motor Speedway as the race begins at approximately 9:20 a.m. PT.
