You’re not a real race fan if you’ve never wondered what a Danica Patrick Lego statue would look like.

Patrick was surprised with a Lego statue of herself in Times Square on Tuesday. Patrick was in New York City as part of the media tour for Sunday’s Indianapolis 500. The race is Patrick’s final start before she retires.


“Oh wow, that’s a lot of Legos,” Patrick said when the cover was taken off the statue.


Patrick is running the Indy 500 for Ed Carpenter Racing and will start seventh. It’s her first IndyCar start since the 2011 season finale. That was Patrick’s final full-time season in open-wheel racing before moving to NASCAR from 2012-17.
