Danica Patrick announced Nov. 17 that 2017 will be her last season driving in NASCAR, and she only wants to be remembered as a great driver.

Patrick became the first woman ever to win an IndyCar race, the Japan 300, in 2008. That was her only win in the open-wheel series, though she finished second or third six times in her career.

If Patrick finds a ride for the Indy 500, she’ll be joined by British driver Pippa Mann, the only woman listed as a Verizon IndyCar Series (the organization’s highest level) driver on the IndyCar.com website.
