Danica Patrick crashes out of final race at Indianapolis 500

Will Power has won the Indianapolis 500, giving the 37-year-old Australian his biggest victory on IndyCar's grandest stage. James Hinchcliffe, a championship contender, failed to make the race at all.

"Definitely not a great ending", she said, "but I kind of said before I came here that I feel like if it's a complete disaster - complete, as in not in the ballpark at all, and look silly - then people might remember that".

Kanaan, the 2013 Indy 500 victor, brought out the last of seven caution flags when he spun and crashed off Turn 2 on Lap 189. "He hated ovals and now he loves them", said Carpenter, the local boy who had dominated the early stages of the race. "I don't know if we have a tampering rule in IndyCar, but congrats Will".

Ed Carpenter captured the poll position with a qualifying time of 229.618 and last year's Indy 500 victor Takuma Sato is back to defend the title.

Alexander Rossi was fourth, stealing a little of the spotlight along the way with a superb pass around the outside of Simon Pagenaud and Ryan Hunter-Reay to jump from fifth to third in one move, leaving Hunter-Reay to round out the top five.

Castroneves was going for a record-tying fourth victory in the 500.

A frustrated Castroneves, who moved to Team Penske's sports auto team full time this season but returned to run the INDYCAR Grand Prix and Indy 500 this month, implored team owner Roger Penske to let him try again next May.

Her appearance in Indianapolis was the second half ofthe "Danica Double" - a swan song of two last races to mark the end of her career.

"I'm not really sure what happened", a dejected Patrick said after coming out of the care center. "It just didn't come today".

"Turn 2 did seem a little bit more edgy than some of the other corners". It's both of them. Power led for 59 of the 200 laps while stomping out his main racing demon. She finished in the top 10 at Indy six different times. "He's been in his yellow suit - I don't think I've seen him out of his yellow suit since we got here this month".

As the race closed in on the halfway point Carpenter was the dominant vehicle on the track, but he was being seriously challenged by former Indy 500 victor Tony Kanaan.
