Andretti should know her preety good by now.
I am hearing AGR is going to do a big overhaul
at years end.
My friend works for them and he said a lot of
changes are on the way.
They need changes if they plan on ever beating
Penske and Ole Chip's bunch.

NASCAR can promote a Danica / Jr love affair. The fans love that stuff more than the race. I can see the headlines now: "Danica and Jr caught slapping bellies in the #88 hauler after yet another DNF"

That would probably be a better show than the race!

Do you really think Danica really want's to move to nascar? The Irl drivers thinks she is doing this hoping someone else will pick her up in IRL and pay her more than AGR is paying her.

I think that Danica has ridden about as far as she can hope to go in the IRL. Danica is a somewhat good driver who is not very good in traffic and has had average results in superior equipment her whole IRL life. Her promotion, by the IRL, and continued false center piece approach by the organization is wearing thin with other drivers, sponsors and yes, even real race fans. The blush is obviously off the IRL rose for Danica.
NASCAR is the logical option for her and I guess that Tony Stewart and Gene Haas might be swayed by the promise of built in big sponsors for anybody who would supply Danica with a ride. Danica would have a 3 to 4 year "Honeymoon" period with NASCAR until NASCAR fans get tired of her whining, blame game, lack of results tactics become clear. Then, Ms. Patrick can retire and forever be known and spoken of in the same breath with the little blond tennis player from Russia who for a number of years captured the hearts and press with very limited talent and a bucket full of T&A appeal. I know that she had a win in Japan, however, considering the level of equipment she has had, one win for a career does not a good driver make.

You're right. The best scenario for the IRL and Danica would be for Danica go to a team and become a contender. I don't think she would be too successful in NASCAR.

No, but a few of the people I went to the 500 are going. My sister and brother in law live in Lowell, In. He's also going to get 12 tickets for next years 500.

If races could be fixed, don't you think Dale Sr. would have won the Daytona 500 sooner and Rusty might have at least won one of them.
