Can Danica Patrick win the 2009 Indy 500?  Oddsmakers are giving her a good shot with single digit odds of +850 for a payout of $850 on every $100 bet.

"Danica Patrick is ranked among the top 5 with the oddsmakers," says Don Shapiro of Gambling911.com.  "There is great value here in that regard as she's got a very good shot of winning and paying out substantially."

There is good reason why the oddsmakers are beginning to take Patrick seriously.

ESPN.com:

"Racing's most famous female usually is a contender here. Her victory last year in Japan made her the first woman to win a major open-wheel race. But a win at Indy would make her immortal.  It's no exaggeration to say Patrick would instantly become one of the most celebrated athletes in the world were she to win Sunday."

Patrick's speed during her final practice session was 219.328 mph, only 23rd fastest of the day.

"I think we had a good final practice today. We were able to work through the hour practice, which was great since there were no yellows. We made a couple changes, and I think we have a couple of options we could go with for the race. I am ready for Sunday to get here, and hopefully we will have a strong finish for the No. 7 Boost Mobile/Motorola car."

 

Patrick starts from the 10th position on the inside of the fourth row. The race will begin Sunday May 24 at noon EST.
