Manica wants to have it both ways. She wants to be Glamour Shots model (but built like a teenage boy) and be photgraphed being a tough guy. All PR crap.

Good thing the little witch didn't go to NASCAR. I doubt the good ol boys would be nearly as courteous as Wheldon was. Her side panels would have 20 doughnuts and a few wall scrapes before the second lap.

Danica, "STFU and drive."

You seem to be pushing the "teenage boy" angle pretty hard here and in other posts. Is there something you'd like to share with the class?
Please get it right

My neighbors daughter is a big Danica fan, she's her favorite driver and she wears all the Danica shirts and other garb. After seeing the latest installment of the Danica/Dan fued, in which Danica really showed her butt, all I could think about was what kind of influence this has on all the young race fans out there. I know this sort of thing is pretty common in motor sports, but Danica needs to realize that she's in a unique situation, being the first IRL female driver that truely stands a chance at being a winner and that all eye's are on her all the time. What a dissapointment.

So what if a guy "expresses his displeasure" to Danica next race? If the police had been investigating this it would have been assault. Once you make physical contact with a person all the rules change. It is no longer "nothing more than a conversation". I am neither a Danica fan nor a hater but I do want the same rules applied to her as everybody else.

We have had her shoved in our face for over a year now. Is it because she is a woman? There should be more to her to deserve all of this publicity. She is a snobby, rude and unfriendly person. Her demeanor on and off the track leave a lot to be desired. Her driving abilities remain to be seen. She doesn't have the stuff heros are made of.

You better believe it would be considered harassment if Wheldon "grab-shoved" Danica. She is just a sore loser.

Ummm, look at the replay. Wheldon actually pushed her out of the way first when she walked up to speak to him. Geez, I would barely call it a push. I've been pushed harder than that as a joke!
