Cover girl!

It has been 20 years since the Indianapolis 500 made it to the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine, following Danny Sullivan's famous spin and win victory in 1985. And the last time a driver was the main cover story was back in 1981 when AJ Foyt stole the front page. Now motor racing is back on the front cover with Danica Patrick headlined "The start of something big" and a picture of the lady in question in overalls.

Racing in the US has rarely has it so good.
