Some of the biggest names in motorsports will be on ESPN Classic this week -- Danica Patrick, Tony Stewart and Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Here's the release from ESPN:

Danica Patrick made history in 2008 when she became the first woman ever to win an IndyCar race. Patrick’s win in the Firestone Indy 300 at Japan’s Twin-Ring Motegi made news around the world.
ESPN Classic will give racing fans the chance to see Patrick’s victory again with an airing of the race, which was originally televised live by ESPN and featured lap-by-lap announcer Marty Reid capturing the significance of the moment with “Boys, move over – the lady is coming through! Danica Patrick wins at Twin-Ring Motegi!” The program airs Wednesday, March 17, at 9 p.m. ET.
Also airing on ESPN Classic this week are episodes of the network’s signature series SportsCentury featuring NASCAR stars Tony Stewart and Dale Earnhardt Jr. The Stewart program airs Tuesday, March 16, at 11 a.m., while the Earnhardt program airs Thursday, March 18, at 11 a.m.
