I agree also its not so much racing anymore its a show like WWE , the 2 drivers that get all the attention Danica and Dale Jr. have won 1 race in 4 years , most drivers with that history are unemployed . I'm not against women in racing but their are women in Nationwide that have earned a chance , put Cobb in the best equipment and see what she does ...
Jennifer j Cobb is an excellent racer, I watched her years ago race @ I70. Not sure why the freakish amount of hype is always about Dannica, there are much better female racers around..

Listen, I am a female, I grew up with Nascar since i was knee high to a grass hopper. I am 35 years old.. its all good that she races, but stay the hell off a mans track! I've dragged raced for years at MOROSSOS's in Florida, I had a passion for it, I turned in my 3000 gt for a family van! the point i am trying to make is, WOMEN DO NOT BELONG THERE! shes a freaking IDIOT! im totally against it, and so are about 2 million other men.
When i opened up my newspaper this morning i lost it.. I woke up my husband and yelled at him, "look at this sh**" I cant believe she made it... I just hope the guys run her ass of the track at the starting line, no man there wants to partner with her.Get her off and i will be happy to watch NASCAR. until then i am not supporting it until shes off.

there is no doubt that the PC police gave her preferential treatment ,..
first in line ,.. pole position

maybe they
should they should give her a BIG trophy for being the first ' woman ' to pass the finish line ,..
{ and at least she didn't crash }.
but then she didn't need to drive very fast ,...
after all ,....
she was only blocking the ' real ' race car drivers ,..who were all stuck behind her

In my eyes yesterday was a victory for Danica,she definitely earned some respect.If she would have had her team mate Tony out there he could have bump drafted her into the lead on that last lap.Did you notice how none of the other drivers helped her at the end.

Yeah,and that was wrong.
We're gonna try and go to Bristol to see the race,or Kentucky Speedway.We watched a Nationwide race at the Kentucky Speedway track,and that was fun.

If that had happened Tony would have won the race. He has never won the 500 and if he had been in a position to push Patrick to the front the next move would have been passing her for the win. As the team owner he would have liked to see her win, but not if there was a chance of him becoming a Daytona 500 champ. Unlike Michael Waltrip, who needs to kiss NASCAR butt by slowing down the drivers on the high side during the restart so Danica could lead a lap, Tony would have raced her as hard as any other driver and if she had taken the lead and won that lap it would have been because she earned it.
