Hahahahahahahaha!!! You're funny. No, we are racing fans who want to see a woman be successful in racing based on her talent alone, who doesn't get sponsorship money by unzipping her top and doing commercials that look like the beginning of a girl on girl porn movie. We want to see a woman who gets her equipment through talent and hard work, not by f*cking a Nascar champion.

It's hard enough for a female to break the glass ceiling in the sport. Getting attention by spreading your legs on a car in a bikini is a slap in the face to the women who are trying to do it the right way.

I think you are great overestimating the appeal of Tony Stewart though I'm sure he would be pleased you feel that way. Maybe he'll hire you to be his pr.

Times are different now, with decent equipment and a real chance, she may do ok. Years ago Janet Guthrie tried her hand at NASCAR, but she wasn't given a real chance so she didn't make it. She did have driving talent.

You could wish! You only looked like a fool. Though I bet Tony would be pleased to know that you think he is that studly. If you ask nicely maybe he'll let you yank on the smoke stack. You couldn't be much worse than anything else that has swung on it.

Oh Geez, here we freakin go again. Another supposed open wheel hot shoe is going to jump over to NASCAR and bullsh*t starts about how she'll probably do okay if she gets good equipment, blah, blah, blah. Shades of 2008 all over again. Whose left, Sam the Crashman and Juan. IF, if, if, a bullfrog had wings he wouldn't bump his ass. If she gets good equipment, a great crew and everything else you need to win, it will still take her 2 or 3 years to even come close to being competitive. The first fact of life is this, she's going to get her ass handed back to her every chance the good boys in Nationwide get a chance and it doesn't look "too" deliberate. It's human nature. A lot of those guys race all year and don't make what she will make for one race. Slack is NOT anything those guys are going to cut her. She can come staumping down pit road having a hissy fit all she wants and nobody is going to give a fat rat's patooty. This ain't going to be the wine and cheese crowd, this is going to be the PBR and redneck crowd.

It's very simple. NASCAR has slumped to the point where it makes sense for thier face-plate to align with the IRL's face-plate. Just like the cross-promo stuff with WWE, ya gotta do what ya gotta do. It's about survival right now. Look for more dog and pony shows from everybody except the NFL.

It'a public entertainment, nothing more.

Did it ever occur to you that 'doing ok' is somewhat relevant to the situation, and not to be compared to 'doing okay' for experienced drivers? For Kyle or Kevin, doing okay is a whole other level compared to doing okay for a brand new driver. If she gets the goods and its only her driving skill that we're rating, then doing okay would mean in comparison to others who have good stuff and are driving their first time. NOT okay compared to those who have experience.

Chris, Danica has had more success because she has had one of the best five cars in the field since her first race. The fact remains that until this year she has never gotten the full potential out of her equipment and has always been the weak link in the team. I do not have as much respect for her as I once did, because, Danica first came into racing wanting to be taken seriously as a driver for her on track performance and not the fact that her butt and chest extends further than her male competitors. Since her marriage to her former physical trainer, either he, she or a combination of them and her other advisors have caused her to change that direction and now you can find her leaning on anything in sight with as much of her flesh exposed as necessary. Does this make her a bad person, no. Does this hurt her driving ability, no. What this suggests is that either she or people advising her realize that she has reached her potential as a driver and never will stick out from the crowd (pardon the pun) by her on track performance and now they are making the most of her, still obvious, sexual appeal and cashing in on it in absence of real on track improvement and wins.

Danica has shown ability in open track conditions, however, her weakness seems to be ability in traffic and in NASCAR, 43 full size cars will provide for more traffic and close racing than the 18 to 23 car world that she has so far been involved with.

No matter how well-written your comment is, it's no more valid than any other. Just because you pretend to know what the hell you're talking about doesn't make your comment true. Unless you got all your information from a reputable source, its only biased opinion and speculation, and 0% reality.

She got the most out of her equip this year on the team. Danica was the highest finishing AGR driver showing that she got the most out of the equipment over marco, the jap driver and Big nosed Tony K. Next.

You don't think that Tony Stewart fans are mostly females who are in love with him actually? Without his sex appeal half his fans wouldn't hate his girlfriends and secretly wish he'd accidently flip a used tootsie roll wrapper their way.

Chris, please reread my post as I stated that "Until This year". I have seen improvement, however, her performance in traffic still tends to be her weak point.

This is bringing back memories of the exploitations of Shawna Robinson..anybody remember her PINK car sponsored by a LINGERIE company? An when she couldn't make the grade, they threw in an all female pit crew? OMG, when they finally pulled her and replaced her with Mike Wallace, that was quite the sight...LOL. Last I heard, she was doing interior decorating for the NASCAR driver's wives!!!

YT. Boy, all you have to do is to look at her year to year performance based against her team mates, until this year. All you have to do is to see her lack of real improvement with one race win which was in a big part to other faster drivers not finishing the race. All you have to do is to watch her shift to doing more "Cheese Cake" type stuff doing the continued unzipping of her jacket in comercials talking about "To Get Under My Hood" it has to peak. I have nothing against her current path, however, it does detract from her early wish to be accepted as a driver and not just a driver with boobs.

Still speculation.

Danica has been accepted already and she's payed a number of dues IMO. Now I think it would be really weird if she tried to be accepted as a guy. She's not. She's a female and she's good looking. You see what she does in adverts as being degrading? I look at it as being realistic. She is in fact what so many males have figured go hand in hand for so many years: Fast cars and hot women, only 1 better cuzz this hot woman actually drives the fast car.
