The NASCAR Diva signs the Indy Diva! Whoopee! I heard one idiot driver just say it would bring more women fans into NASCAR! What an idiot! Guess there are still chauvinist pigs out there that think women don't have a clue about cars and racing and we just like NASCAR for the good looking drivers and the pretty jackets. Yeah, I'm really going to watch more because Danica has sexy posters out! Sounds like she's meant to bring more clueless men into NASCAR. She has the same talent as Jr. A lot off the track and not so much on the track. More stupid hype for the media to fawn about.

Actually, I think Jr has a bit more talent on the track than Danica.

Jr is going through a rough time in his career but to compare Danica's driving talent to his is a f**kin joke! I don't think her 'infomercial playboy roadshow' is going to carry much weight with the NASCAR crowd

Damn, couldn't it have meant that a woman would like to watch and see how well a woman does, or they'd like to see a woman do something they'd love to have had the opportunity to?

Well for one thing theres a difference between the style of racing. She will have to learn how to handle a heavier car, finding her line, car set up. Montoya, Pappis, Hornish have all said it takes time to make the transition. She'll need to learn patience. She's a very aggressive driver.

To get used to driving the POS COT, perhaps she should spend the off season driving a taxi cab in New York City.

She's an aggressive talker - I'll give you that! But in stock cars, BS walks!

They probably think if she wins she'll unzip her suit in victory lane.

Great, an overrated driver driving for another over88ted driver. Seriously, even Hornish couldn't do this. The only wins those drivers have to their credit in the last 2 (3?) years is a fuel mileage victory. What Excitement! She will be back to driving easy wheel cars full time before that contract is up.

How many races did Franchitti run before he broke his foot? Not enough to say he failed. If he ran maybe 2 seasons then you could go there. He lost sponsorship when he broke his ankle. No comphrende? I don't think anyone could be as bad as Elliott Sadler.

Couldn't do what? You have to give them time before you say they failed. Where's the brains in this place?

Tony Stewart, for example, said "I think obviously she's got talent; she's been successful in every form of racing she's been in so far and I don't see why she wouldn't be successful here [in NASCAR]." -wiki

I agree with Mr. Stewart.

That's the problem all the females are in love with Tony so they're jealous.
