Official IndyCar website has Danica Patrick winning Indy 500 even though she isn’t racing in it (Picture)

The 96th annual Indy 500 may be hours away from coming to a close, but according to the official IndyCar website a winner has already been crowned. As you can see from the screenshot above that was taken from IndyCar.com, a photo of Danica Patrick ran on the website Sunday morning before the race began with a caption below it that read, “wins 96th running of the Indy 500.” That has to be the easiest accomplishment Danica has ever reached in her racing career.

It’s a storyline IndyCar racing could only dream of, but someone needs to edit these headlines a bit more carefully. Not only has the Indy 500 yet to conclude, but Patrick isn’t even taking part. She’s racing in NASCAR’s Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday. Try wrapping your brain around that one.

UPDATE: Shockingly, Danica did not drop out of the Coca-Cola 600 and make her way to the Indy 500 in time for the IndyCar.com headline to be validated. Dario Franchitti wound up winning his third Indy 500.
