    IRL looking into postrace confrontation between Patrick, Lazier
    October 17, 2005

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) --
    The Indy Racing League will look into a confrontation between Danica Patrick and Jaques Lazier that took place after the drivers bumped and wrecked during the season-ending race at California Speedway.

    The two rode in the same ambulance to the track medical center after they collided and crashed while battling for eighth place late in Sunday's race. Patrick came away with a sore elbow and Lazier was not hurt, but both blamed the other for the wreck.

    Patrick, the IRL's only woman and the series rookie of the year, denied media reports that she punched Lazier, a veteran.

    Brent Maurer, a spokesman for Patrick's Rahal Letterman Racing team, said the driver told him she tapped Lazier on the forehead with two fingers and said, ``You've got to use this.''

    Lazier told the Indianapolis Star for a story in Monday editions that he didn't want to go into detail about their quarrel, but said, ``Look, we had a difference of opinion about what happened, and we were both emotional. If she said she hit me on the temple with her fingers, that's fine. It doesn't matter. My son hits harder than she does.''

    Lazier's son is 4 years old.

    IRL spokesman John Griffin told The Associated Press that the sanctioning organization will investigate.

    ``There are two sides to every story,'' he said. ``We'll look into it and try to get to the bottom of what happened.''

    Nice smack from Lazier. :thumbup:

    Why? She has proven beyond a doubt she can drive and hang with the boys. Now she's showing some agression after a wreck.

    If it was Dale Jr slapping Gordon on the head telling him to "Use this" it would be just racing. Danika deserves the same consideration. It's only a story because a girl is involved.

    I honestly hope she wins soon. The worst thing that could happen is if she becomes the Kornekova of auto racing.

    I just hate women who think they can hang with the men..... They have their place in society, why can't they just accept it?

    as long as she first cooks, cleans, and satisfies my manly needs, she can do what ever she wants. :)

    Ah, you men are so simple to think that we women could be baited so easily. It's almost cute in a ridiculous man sorta way. :p

    Silly girls

    If I wanted to bait a girl I'd set up a trap of an apron, cooking mits, bon bons, curling iron, pots & pans, a microwave and a fine bottle of white zin ... and when all is said and done, they can then have the pleasure of catering to my every whim

    what broad could resist flocking to that!?!?!?!
