Danica gives Rachael
the ride of her life


Danica Patrick made history by becoming the first female winner in IndyCar history after taking the checkered flag at the Indy Japan 300 race on Sunday. The race-car driver celebrated her big win when she stopped by Rachael Ray's talk show on Wednesday. Danica stepped out of the studio and into a car in an attempt to teach Rachael how to drive a stick. "Do I need to sign a release for my life?" Danica joked with the producers, as Rachael warned the audience: "I'm serious, you really need to back up and get against the wall." After forgetting to put the car in drive and stalling out numerous times, Rachael finally made it around the block — but we don't think she'll be buying a stick shift any time soon!
