Nascar will miss you as a fan but the fan base she can generate far outways the loss of one or more you should just stop and watch the race it sure beats basketball.

I used to love sports. Then it became to big for what we see. A blue collar, lunch pail industry went upscale. Now NASCAR still has more blue collar then others. But the money for everything has to come from somewhere. And that includes Danica Patrick. Danica has to win. And pro basketball until it changes its ways, sucks. When You have teams that are bad 20-25 years, changes are needed.

What BS. The idiot wrecked again. She's a no-talent menace on the trsck.
Whose the idiot? YOU! She was in three wreckes and didn't casue any of them. A former Dayton 500 winner, Jamie McMurray took her out in the 150 mile duels. Her own teammate took her out of the Nationwide race and Elliot Sadlers bonehead move at the start of lap two took her out of the 500. Do you need glasses?

I wonder how long it will be before Harvick takes a swing at her.

I doubt that she can bake a pie. The funny thing is before she left Florida she was eating eggs and drinking a beer before getting on the plane. This combination made me want to gag.

Love to see the morons like OSUseless and redumb - she wrecks in almost every race but it's not her fault. Poor Danicrap!!! Odd - no one else seems to be so unlucky. Maybe if she had talent and was competing rather than hiding in the pack she wouldn't be involved in every crash.

Keep the excuses coming - but let's make it interesting. Give us the excuse for her NEXT loss - i.e. before she loses as usual.

none of the driver that transition from indy car serries are sucsesful right away even smoke took some races and wrecks under belt before he became a champion. its kind of like going from a no checking hockey league to full contact hockey you get your butt handed to ya a few times and then you get tough and mean and put your head on a swivel.

So what - and many do not transition, especially those mediocre or worse like the dwarf woman.

But you have to enjoy her "honey bear" line of toughness followed by her hide until everyone else wrecks line.

You are a fake, Jorge, unable to accept Danica Patrick as a bonafide race driver. Sure, she gets in wrecks caused by jealous, envious and nasty men drivers. Otherwise, she would fare much better.

Love crapinski - another ad hominem and the laughable "bonafide." The term is bona fide (two words moron) and is inconsistent with the dwarf's abyssmal record. You might try to offer evidence rather than your obvious bias.

redumb - and many drivers with some degree of success (i.e. >>> the dwarf woman) are never mentioned. I know you are dense, redjumb, but the topic is the dwarf - not others. Got it?

Now run away, girls, and prepare your exuses for the next time dwarfica patrick "races."

More excuses, girls.

She's had multiple chances and for reasons far from performance and capabiity she'll have many more.

Watch out walls, here comes Dwarfica!! Let's hope her wrecks cost no lives or careers.
