For Dixon to complain about her, she must have been weaving back and forth like she was on her way home from the bar after happy hour. Scott was rather polite in his assesment of her fialure to hold her line in the post race interview.

From the very few views we got of her driving, i dont think she was driving that bad,but,we didnt get to see all of her race.
I think half way thru she was complaining of handling problems.
And Scott didnt have the car he has had in the last few races.
But that is my view,all in all i think it was a great race.
And it looked like a full house, ;)

I would have to hear the opinions of other drivers before I could agree

I have to disagree. Scott isn't a complainer. He wouldn't make excusses for not doing as well as some think he should.

Other drivers have said the same, maybe not in this race. But Danica has been accused before of not holding her line. That's not to say that she is the only one accused of wavering from time to time.

Patrick is a marketing tool not a driver.

I don't know if I've really ever heard Scott come right out and say something negative about another driver. So you're right something is wrong when it happens. I've heard the other drivers tell their crew chiefs to tell her quit blocking and they relay it to the her team or Barnhart for her to stop.

No correction intended. I know Scott...not well, but enough to know he doesn't complain without cause.

The best one we got :) Don't care for her much but I don't want to see her go anywhere. The more she poses the more people come to see her. Win-win situation for the IRL. Being a chic I'd rather see a dude but hey!

No, she's a great driver that they turned into a marketing tool. Maybe all the promotional crap they have her doing is taking the joy out of being a race driver. She doesn't seem like a natural people person, does she? Can't imagine she enjoys the hype at all.
If she gained 200lbs and grew some whiskers, people would love everything she did, and they'd call her Tony Stewart.
