Danica Patrick became the first woman to secure the pole position for the Daytona 500 today, a pretty big accomplishment. Of course, she still has to run in the race, but the rules for what does and does not constitute a victory are as confusing as the NFL’s overtime rules. So let’s let Donovan McNabb put this in its proper perspective.
Congrats to the Illinois native Danica Patrick on her win today. The first female to win in a big race with this magnitude. Big win
