What's Your Personal Fuel Strategy?
A dear friend sent me an inspiring YouTube link about race car driver Danica Patrick. In 2008, Patrick became the first woman to win a major league IndyCar event. Patrick took the lead in the Indy Japan 300, finishing almost six seconds ahead of the next driver, who ran out of fuel in the final turns of the track.
What’s interesting to note is that in 2006, Patrick ran out of fuel with three laps to go in the Firestone Indy 400. In Japan, Patrick elected to refuel before she needed to, a strategy that allowed her to win the race.
