"Oh, well. I've never done that in my career". Carpenter for his part was surprised by Patrick's inadvertent reveal, noting that details regarding how much practice time she'll get are still in the works.
After answering a few more questions, an agitated Patrick ended the interview session by saying, "I better shut up and leave". "She has the same goals that we do as a team, and that's to be in the best position possible to win the race".
In her first Indy 500 in 2005, Patrick became the first woman to ever take the lead, and was leading with just seven laps left. She finished third in the 2009 Indianapolis 500 and eighth in the 2013 Daytona 500.

ECR had been the likely landing spot for Patrick. Pigot said a couple of weeks ago that he would welcome having Patrick as a teammate for the 500 if the deal came through. "I'm excited to show him what I do".
