It's all good when she's on the track alone qualifying,but wait til 43 other drivers pass her weak ass up...hopefully one will run her into a wall!Then she can do what all women are put on this earth to do,make men sandwiches!

She won't keep the lead long. She'll either forget what the gas pedal's for or she'll find out exactly where the wall is. I liked her when she first came into NASCAR, but she's just not a good enough driver in my opinion, and she really needs to learn how to give an interview.

LOL....my husband agreed with you and Piggy.And she wont have the lead long,but its kinda neat to see a woman starting out that race.We've been to Daytona Speedway,and its fun watching a Nascar race there.

I used to keep up with NASCAR but I've just about got tired of the rule changes all the time, and the childish crap the drivers do to each other. I'd like to see it go back to the day when racing was based on who built the best motor and drivers weren't so wimpy. The days of the Yarborough's, Allison's, Petty's, Earnhardt's. Back when the Waltrip's and Wallace's raced side by side, when the make of a car was easy to recognize. Yeah...take me back to the good old days and I'll be cheering on every race.

My favorite drivers was Bill Elliott & Jimmy Spencer.
Now it's Tony Stewart and Carl Edwards.
I think they should take the restrictor plates off and let them race!!

I like Smoke, too. I liked him the first time I saw him race. He used to drive indy cars. I also liked Dale Jarrett. Ned, his dad used to do a little racing back in the day, too.

I agree. I wish it was like it used to be. It's just not fun anymore.

I agree also its not so much racing anymore its a show like WWE , the 2 drivers that get all the attention Danica and Dale Jr. have won 1 race in 4 years , most drivers with that history are unemployed . I'm not against women in racing but their are women in Nationwide that have earned a chance , put Cobb in the best equipment and see what she does ...

the only time you will see any REAL racing in NASCAR, is the final ten laps.
