His story wasn't very good up until the part where Danica Patrick grabbed the pole.

USA Today isn't known for clever wordplay using typos to convey a hidden message. It's known for easy-to-digest infographics and big font. Still, typos are bad and typos about racing's leading lady that a.) make her sound like a snake or b.) remind us of the "his story" / "her story" cliches of feminism are really, really bad typos. We won't even investigate the idea that it's accusing her of being part of the SS. The most insane piece of information from this, though, comes not from USA Today but from General Motors, which randomly announced (after consulting their in-house mystics) that the meaning of the headline was clearly a reference to the Chevy SS she was driving. Except that in some localities where USA Today had time to fix the copy, it ran as "history." So, nice try, GM.
