That chick is fast

Forgot to mention this the other day: congratulations to Danica Patrick for becoming the first woman to win an IndyCar race.

Meanwhile, in Saudi Arabia, it's more of the same: "Saudi driving ban on women extends to golf carts"

Saudi Arabia's longstanding ban on female drivers went an extra mile this week when women were barred from using golf carts to move around a cultural festival, according to Saudi newspapers.
Men were permitted to use carts during the first 12 days of the Janadriya Heritage and Cultural Festival when only male visitors are allowed to attend, but the carts were withdrawn during the last three days which are reserved for women.
Awesomest clash of cultures ever.
