I'd say congratulations to her. I fully understand her passion for racing although she's really not very fast, but her desire to racing can be seen by all.

Put her in a Penske car or an Andretti Green car and I think you would find her quite fast. Probably as fast as the "Little Brat"

I all ready booked my trip to Kentucky Speedway! I'd give anything to see her pass the brat on the track.

They had a 4 tickets for $100.00 special I still would like to get some to go that's a good deal! Especially since if it's not packed you can get those tickets then move.

I've said all along that in equal equipment, I like Sarah's chances. Equipment being what it is, however,I'm afraid Sarah is just throwing good money after bad. Penske isn't going to happen, and AGR already has one diva.

That being said, if I was sitting in the "big chair" at RLR or Foyt, I might give her a chance. She's shown a willingness to put her OWN money on the line to do what she believes she can do. And, she is, unlike Danica, popular among her peers.

That is not to say that I don't believe Danica has talent, I do; but, I think Sarah has some "gitty up" as well, and I would love to see her get a REAL chance.

C'mon, AJ....You KNOW you want to run a second car. Darren Manning is coming along nicely and a 41 car with Sarah aboard is a sponsor magnet, if you pursue the right sponsors. Maybe you could do some real engineering on those cars and get the edge to become really competitive....

I'm hoping that Tony Stewart will give ol Foyt a call and say lets do a joint effort car! Put tony in the 41 for the 500 and let someone else drive it the rest of the year! I was hoping Sarah Fisher and walker would join forces but it didn't happen.

Megan, I like that idea as well, but NASCAR being what it is, and the schedule being what it is, it isn't going to happen. Besides, I'm not so sure Smoke could fit in an Indy car anymore.

That being said, AJ and Smoke are of the same temperament and could be kinda like AJ and George Bignotti were in the 60's.

Come on sponsors gave Sarah Fisher a chance, she is so much better than Dancia if only given the chance plus she is a better role model. Sarah is really good for indy car racing.

I think Sarah's going to be just fine and took the right path which could pay off.

Sarah doesn't have the Madison Avenue appeal that Danika has and I doubt you'll see her posing in Maxim.

So if Sarah races for another team she'll be in car two with second rate equipment and people. That's the main reason she left Dreyer and Reinoldt.

She showed at Kentucky what she can do, though It wasn't a flawless performance.

She got off to a rocky start that put her a lap down. Had she done better at the start she had a car that could have given her a top 5, assuming no bearing faluire.

But for most of the race she out performed Danika on the track, which is what her sponsors wanted to see and her team showed the ability to sweat details, to dot I's and cross T's again, something sponsors want to see.

All in all, SFR has a good day.

Sarah may not be as bankable as the Witch Of Indy,but she's at least likeable.
Give her the same equipment as nasty and see what happens.
Andretti owes her a car anyway
