Last weekend's ABC Supply/A.J. Foyt 225 Indy race at the Milwaukee Mile saw Tony Kanann take the checkered flag, but a confrontation after the race between Danica Patrick and Dan Wheldon is getting more media attention than who stood atop the podium after the race concluded. On Lap 88, Danica Patrick was running fifth when her car made contact with Dan Wheldon's in Turn 1. Wheldon was ahead and on the outside and Patrick wasn't give him much room while coming up on left. The exchange forced Patrick to lose control for a split second, though she saved her car from going into the wall. Wheldon went on to finish third behind Indy 500 winner Dario Franchitti and race winner Tony Kanaan. Patrick scrambled back up to eighth place. After the race, Patrick confronted Wheldon in the pits, grabbed his arm and gave him a shove. Worse things have happened after a race in which two competitors have gotten into it on the track, though Wheldon provided some choice quotes after the incident, including "She's messing with the wrong person if she wants to get feisty. I'm a lot tougher than she is on track,." and "She's just feisty. There's a lot of pressure on her because she has not won a race, and her teammates are (winning)."
