Works out well for NASCAR. Puts butts in the seats and makes NASCAR even more money. But do we have to hear about her ad nauseum as per the last few weeks?

You have to finish to win. She hasn't shown she is capable of that. But you can bet NASCAR is going to give her all the help they possibly can. They need her. She will bring in more fans than they lose because of her. IF you could watch her in the garage you wouldn't be a fan for long.

I'm not a Danica fan but I'm curious, why after watching her in the garage would it change a fan's mind?

Let's just say the 3 times I saw her in the garage she was not very easy for anyone to get along with, including her crew.

She'll probably always do well in qualifying because there are no other cars around her. Add competition & she can't stay away from a wreck or wall.

The spinout and crash in the shootout probably couldn't have been avoided but the one today about anyone could have avoided. Kyle would have wiggled around a little and kept going.

Danica dropping the F-bomb raised her stock with me.

She had every right to be pissed.

<quoted text>Kyle no doubt would have, most other guys in the big league would have too. Danica hasn't a clue what to do or not do in stock car racing pure and simple.
Why don't you just fly away, Freebird? Danica is going to surprise all of us. And you gotta start somewhere.

She drives for Jr, the car is probably illegal.
