Ya I can see the Tony Stewart fans lining up since he's funding it now. Good one.

I am so pissed that she will be in NASCAR. I hope she never gets into cup. Don't like her at all. And I only see pics with her with her face all scrunched up, smile once in a while.

Well at least she's doing it the right way taking it easy and slowly moving up. If she can't cut it she wont move up.

Maybe Jr could smooze with Danica and possibly they could become a two some coo some. He needs somebody just like her, She could give him all the competetion at the track he can handle, and keep him busy with his gentlemens ways away from the track. Some one he could bring to the track and functions other than the low lifes he hangs around with now.

I agree I can't stand her she's made her name by taking her clothes off and letting anyone take her picture and print it. And her personality is ego, ego, me, me and ignorant look at some of the stunts she pulled on the other drivers in IRL when she doesn't get her own way or something happens. They baby her in IRL and let her get away with it because they think they need her for the sport. Can she drive a race car maybe, maybe not but to me she's lost all credibility as a driver when she is known more for her state of undress than her driving. And she's one more distraction Jr doesn't need. I also think it's unfair to all those drivers who have paid their dues working their way up through the various series's and have proven they can drive and she walks in and takes a ride that they earned.

Well at least part of the time jr will be seen with a female in the garage area.....lmao

I wonder if this is a move by HMS to slowly move Danica in and jr out, since HMS is part owner of jr motorsports. I could see jr's sister selling him out to benefit herself, cause that is the Earnhardt way, just look at some of the moves old sr. did, and besides, jr is too stupid to see it coming anyway.

Well that's true one difference would be that she seems to always have her husband with her at the track. Jr. is under contract through the end of the 2012 season at HMS but as we know contracts are made to be broken LOL. I would sooner think that if HMS is looking to put her in a cup car Mark Martin is under contract through the end of the 2011 season the same time that Danica's contract ends with JRM convenient but even though Mark says this is his last contract we've heard that before although he'd be what 53 or 54 so he might hang it up this time. Who knows. Kelley does seem to be over ambitious doesn't she and she seems to lead Jr around on a leash so who knows. I would hope she wouldn't do that.

Before anyone shoves Jr out the door, the Princess will have to prove she can handle Nascar. All seem to point that she won't be able to handle the heavy car with no computer telemetry to help dial in the car, and she has always said she doesn't like Nascar's heavy schedule. Right now, she's in a 1600lb car, with ONLY 20 other drivers, in 16 races. She doesn't have to know jack shyt about her race car because the computer tells the team everything. She's going to have to compete with 42 other cars in a sport that hasn't been welcoming to women. She will not be able to have her PMS hissy fits with these guys because that won't fly in Nascar. While the pre-pubscent males will be drooling over her while thinking they would have a shot with her (like that's going to happen), the real race fans wil know that what she offers is nothing more than a brand with questionable talent. She's been nursed by the IRL in order to have their circus side show. She'd be taken more seriously if she'd stop the bikini show and the salacious Go Daddy commercials.

I agree but I think the NASCAR guys will put up with more from her than they should because they will have orders from above to do so I hope I'm wrong. Her and her husband seem really happily married he doesn't look like what you would think would be her type and he's quite a bit older than her but they seem to be good together so those guys might as well just keep drooling. It will be interesting to see how NASCAR handles her type of I'm barely dressed PR it was said they didn't like Carl Edwards posing with his shirt off for that fitness shoot so will she have to tone it down I doubt it. The NASCAR gods think she's come to save their sport it seems. I don't think she can cut it but she won't lose her ride like the guys do and that's not fair.

You say.....the real race fans wil know that what she offers is nothing more than a brand with questionable talent. She's been nursed by the IRL in order to have their circus side show. She'd be taken more seriously if she'd stop the bikini show and the salacious Go Daddy commercials.
This sounds REALLY familiar! You could replace hse with he, the name Danica with Joonyer and IRL with NASCAR and what you said would be right on the money. See below....

Grrreat! The ugly troll made it to NASCAR. GoDaddy, quit trying to make me throw up....just because she is female and a racecar driver doesn't make her good or hot. I don't want to see her or any other subpar female trying to act sexy. Barf. Whomever thinks she's hot needs to get out more often.
