Oreovicz: "Her win was the product of a disciplined final stint that allowed her to stretch a 22-gallon tank of ethanol farther than anyone else. But a win is a win is a win."

Olson: "Danica Patrick doesn‘t have to answer the question anymore."

Estrada: "When American open-wheel racing finally unified in February, the sport got a new lease on life. Now, in the wake of that historic truce, the Indy Racing League has made the most of it."

Cavin: "Danica Patrick made history Saturday as midnight struck."

Martin: "It is yet another sign of the positive vibe this form of racing has been feeling since unification at the end of February. Prior to that, IndyCar Racing had become the "Redheaded Stepchild" of the sporting world, relegated to the back pages of the sports sections when it was embroiled in an open-wheel civil war, first with CART and recently with CART's successor, Champ Car."
