Danica will not do any better in nascar than she has done in Indy. Cannot take her serious, she is just a marketing tool that can drive a race car but not good enough to compete. Nice butt though!

You are probably right. I just don't see Danica wheeling a COT around the track beating Hendricks and Roush drivers. Not a chance. But she will probably beat Jr a few times.

The only way she could beat Jr is running over her crew and stomping off like a baby.

NASCAR doesn't need a better Jr; it's not going to happen anyway (unless the NASCAR Nazis fix it for him); NASCAR would be a lot better without the distraction known as Jr.

Yeah but not the CUP COTs right? The nationwide COT might be something she can handle. And if nothing else, I want to see her do better than any other woman in NASCAR. And THAT I DO think she can handle.

I see 3 goals: Do better than any other women have in NASCAR, do better than most new drivers, and better than most open wheel drivers who've come over. Those are sensible goals. Trying to outperform the big boys ain't likely. But I do want to see what she's got and I hope she get a fair break. If not, she can just go Juan Pablo on their ass with attitude. They got more to lose than she does, Im sure.

The only thing he would be correct in is He has a big mouth, and I wasn't talking to you.

It doesn't matter if you were "talking" to me or not. NASCAR would be a better palce without The Junior and the distraction he brings.

i think she's lucky @ what she's doing, so she should stay there! those men in racing would eat her alive, & yes she will embarass herself with a group of guys. & another thing its nice to see jr. interested in her racing ability but that better be all, like someone else said that another women racer got involved with her boss, please not my jr. she's not good enough for him!!!!!! she needs to start at the bottom like all the up comers in the racing family!!!!

I don't think 5th in points where she IS was too embarrassing and that's a majority of males,isnt it?

I dont understand how people can say she's not going to do well enough against men. What a prejudice thing to say, and in poor judgement since she's already surrounded by men and doing just fine. SO until she proves she even can drive the cars, there is no basis for saying she will NOT be good against men. Basically, she might not be good at all even on the track by herself!
