Danica Patrick confirmed in February that she would end her racing career after the 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500.

The victory capped a ideal month of May for the man from Toowoomba as Power tuned up for the Indy 500 by notching up his 33rd career win with a victory in the Indianapolis Grand Prix run on the Speedway's road circuit.

She struggled to run up front despite driving for a powerhouse Stewart-Haas Racing team much of her career, and she wound up with just seven top-10 finishes. "I'm just so thrilled, 17 wins". "Today was a tough day".

"I can't believe it!" he screamed in the winner's circle.

"I'm very grateful for everybody and for being able to finish it up like I wanted to", she said.

"I can't describe it", Power told ESPN after the race. Power actually swept the month of May at Indy after winning on the road course two weeks ago and his 34 wins tied him with Al Unser Jr. for eighth on IndyCar's all-time list.

"Most people don't have anything when they retire and have to figure it out after".

Power - the 2014 IndyCar Series champion - was so excited about his victory, but he wisely chose to only have a sip of his celebratory bottle of milk. One last strong showing in Indianapolis would be a nice sendoff for one of the most important women in auto racing history.

It's always special to be here at Indy, but I've been with him on four Sunday nights after the race where he's disappointed and we have had a deep-and-meaningful for hours.

"I was definitely nervous", she said, "but I found myself most of the time on the grid feeling confused".

Now, this time, we're going to have a good chat tonight and I'm sure share a beer.

He often talks to me about it, maybe doing a wildcard with [DJR Team] Penske or maybe post-career he'll have a proper crack.

While there was plenty of disappointment in Patrick's words there was not a hint of regret, having been steadfast in the buildup to Sunday's race she would not get behind the wheel again and had no interest in being involved as an owner or mentor to young racers.
