The Indianapolis 500 will have a new TV analyst this season, Danica Patrick.

The Roscoe native retired from racing in 2018 but it didn't take her long to return to the sport. This time she won't be behind the steering wheel. Her seat will be at the mic.

According to,

"The only woman to have ever won an Indycar race will be working as an analyst alongside host Mike Tirico and contribute across the NBCUniversal platforms from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the month of May, the network announced on Wednesday."

I enjoy watching the Indy 500, so I'm interested to see what she adds to the broadcast.
