Danica Patrick a tandem Fast starting-racing gem

Racing League (IRL) driver Danica Patrick brought the grandstand spectators to their feet on Lap 96 when the IndyCar Series regular bolted to the lead of the Subway Jalapeno 250 Friday night.JR Motorsports teammate Aric Almirola pushed Patrick to the front causing the spontaneous race fan celebration.

She was stirred but not shaken by the crash, said in the garage area."On the other hand, if you back off, other people are getting runs on you, so you have to be careful you don't drop back too far. That's when cars are spread out across the track, which is when things like that (big wreck) happen."Patrick, who is heavily rumored to be leaving IndyCar to race in NASCAR next season, said she was pleased with her performance.

It was a bit of a mess at the end."That doesn't change the fact that I had a lot of fun. It was really good to run up front and lead laps for real. I wasn't pushed to the lead for one lap, but led a lot of laps."Patrick's crew chief, Tony Eury Jr., had a wide smile after the race, in which his driver led five times for 13 laps and finished 10th.

I appreciate Tony Stewart helping her at the first of the race. Tony took the time with her then we got hooked up there at the end with Aric."Patrick displayed plenty of moxy as she battled with the boys on a clear, breezy night.

She made several bold moves during the race.The highest compliment? She got a high five from Almirola."Good job out there buddy," she said. "I hope I was OK.""I thought you did good," Almirola said. "This was only your second time doing it.

Susan Lucci:Biography and photo gallery

American actress Susan Lucci was born on December 23, 1946, in Scarsdale, New York, although she grew up in Garden City.

Since she can remember she always wanted to be a performer, and through her teenage years, took voice lessons, dance lessons, and participated in community theater.
As the years went by and Susan Lucci became the grande dame of American soap operas, she also became famous for something else: being nominated for Emmy Awards without winning.

In high school she was the ideal student: took many honors classes, was a cheerleader, staff writer for the school newspaper, was a foreign exchange student to Norway, and performed in the school musicals, including lead roles in "Oklahoma" and "The King and I". After graduating with Honors from Garden City High School, she was accepted and attended Marymount College in Tarrytown, New York, which was noted for its theater program.
After graduating with a BFA in theater arts, she moved to New York City, and began going to auditions. One of her first jobs was that of a color girl for CBS. Every day she would report to the studio, and sit on a stool, as technicians developed the new color cameras. Most of her acting work consisted of Off-Broadway understudy roles, day-player roles on soap operas, and extra and stand-in work for movies.

In 1978, Susan received her first Daytime Emmy nomination. She was nominated again in 1981, and nominated almost every year since then. In the early 1980s, she became the first soap opera actress to appear on the cover of major magazines, as well as the first to star in Movies of the Week. But what made her a household name by the late 1980s was her string of Emmy losses.
Lucci was nominated 19 times altogether before finally, triumphantly, winning the daytime Emmy for best actress in 1999.

Susan Lucci has also starred in a string of breathless TV movies, including Mafia Princess (1986), The Bride in Black (1990), Seduced and Betrayed (1995) and Blood On Her Hands (1998). Lucci appeared on the 2008 edition of the TV show Dancing With The Stars, with competitors including Cloris Leachman and Kim Kardashian.
