Yes she does. I was at the Nationwide race in Vegas and I was listening to her radio when she got into the crash in turn 2. The first words out of her mouth were f@$# man. So yes, she does.
No She is not she would be 69 years old, so no way.
15x116 but has 2" pitch ! no tracks to be found !
a special trophy and some money
Track events are generally running events, normally run in the form of a race, with a start line and a finish line, meaning there is a prescribed distance of the event. Everybody in the event generally starts at the same time and the first one across the finish line is the winner.
I put the word generally in these sentences because there are occasional exceptions when someone invents an event, like handicap races, that deviates from the norm.
Track races would occur on a track, a flat measured surface that is designed for the best consistency for all contestants to have an equal chance. When you see a track race with a staggered start, each of those start lines is carefully measured so it is exactly the same distance from start line to finish line for each participant if they stay in their lane. The further the distance from the center of a circle, the longer the circumference. Most tracks are 400 meters outdoors or 200 meters indoors, though there are many exceptions. The one consistency is that every effort is made so that the competitors have as equal circumstances as possible, so the competition is based on the athletic ability. Most modern tracks, where top level competition takes place are called All Weather tracks, which means they have a rubberized surface, good for traction, with a consistent amount of bounce, which will not absorb water (rain).
A field event is where each athlete competes in their event by themselves, one at a time on the same competition area. These would generally be jumps and throws. In a throwing event, most throw from some form of circle (even the javelin has a circular throwing line at the end of its runway). The throw must be made from inside the circle (if the athlete steps out of the circle, the throw is a foul and is not counted) and is measured to the closest point the implement lands to the circle. Long jump and triple jumps function the same way, with the jump measured from a board on the runway to the closest mark their body leaves after landing in a sand pit. Vertical jumps, the High Jump and Pole Vault are slightly different, the bar progresses up at regular intervals. The athletes can choose which height they wish to attempt. Each miss is counted against them to break the frequent ties, but they can keep attempting new heights until they miss three times in a row.
All of these events, track races of various distances (including relays and hurdle races) and field events happen at the same event, known in the United States as a track and field meet. Its another case of the USA obstinately doing its own thing, like measuring in feet and inches or Fahrenheit. The rest of the world knows the same sport as Athletics. The sports governing body, the IAAF (the International Association of Athletics Federations, formerly known as theInternational Amateur Athletics Federation) uses Athletics in its title to describe the sport. Also under that umbrella are road racing (which includes marathons), cross country racing (XC, where the varying course conditions are part of the event), mountain ultra trail running (MUT, difficult courses over extremely long distances) and race walking (RW, the athlete must remain in contact with the ground with knees straightened until they pass under the athlete). That group of sports is also referred to as Athletics. Back in the USA, the national governing body is still trying to find a way to put a blanket over that same group of sports. In 1979, the government broke up the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) to allow the path for professional athletes in the sport. The new body became known as The Athletics Congress, TAC. After a decade of confusion, in 1992 they changed their name to United States Track and Field, USATF, which has subsequently offended the road runners and other participants in the other related sports by making them feel left out.
AJ Foyt made his career in an Indy car, winning the Indy 500 4 times. He also won the 1972 Daytona 500 for the Wood Brothers
Mario Andretti also has won both races. He won the Indy 500 in 1969 and the Daytona 500 in 1967.
Dale Jarrett started the long time tradition of kissing the bricks. In 1996, after winning the Brickyard 400 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Dale Jarrett stated to his crew chief Todd Parrott that he wanted to do something unique after the victory. His crew chief and team joined in and drivers have kissed the bricks after every Brickyard 400 and Indianapolis 500 win ever since.
As of 2008, the Indycar Series decided to only award race earnings to race teams based upon their finish in the Indy 500. Teams that qualify for the Indy 500 as of 2009 earned no less than $275k regardless of whether or not they were full time race teams. As of 2008 they decided to grant teams that competed in the full schedule with no less than $1.2 million. Based upon contractual agreements drivers then get a percentage of that. I have heard that drivers getting 40% of winnings is a reasonably common figure though it varies and is likely to not be much more than that. On top of race winnings, I have also heard that there was a base salary of $200k though this was reported back in 1998. Sponsorship endorsement deals also often pay drivers some chunk of change (larger with drivers with more reputable sponsors). Bottom line: An Indycar driver that is reasonable will walk away with about a $1,000,000 paycheck for the season. This figure can vary widely too. Evidence of this is reported by Forbes with the claim that Danica Patrick earned $7,000,000 in 2009. The vast majority of that coming from sponsorship deals.
Here is a slightly dated link with some more insight on the issue.

Funny Car is a drag racing car class. Funny cars have forward-mounted engines and carbon fiber automotive bodies over the chassis, giving them an appearance vaguely approximating manufacturers' showroom models. The first funny cars were built in the mid-'60s and so-called because the rear wheels had been moved forward on the chassis to improve weight transfer under acceleration, increasing traction on the rear tires, which were oversized compared to stock. Looking at the cars, they didn't quite look stock, hence the name "funny."
It changes year to year based on heat, humidity and number of caution laps during the race. Last years speed average was 143.567 mph. The fastest speed average was in 1990 when Arie Luyendyk won the race with a 185.981 average.
