<quoted text>in case you are not aware of this.. "past champions" have been taking up spots in many races each year in order for which teams to benefit??? Danica's points were BOUGHT.. too many times a past chap is put in in order to throw a WRENCH into other teams.. which is down and dirty.. past Champs like Terry labonte sell their soul in order to deterr competitors from having an equal shot as which BIG team??(HMS of course)..
Tony for his sponsor is now giving far more value to a team that could not in any way ever get what Tony is offering them.. it is fair and square.
Debi let me put it this way. If DP was a MAN!! In other words if she peed standing up!!!! I would not have a problem with Tony buying DP a spot in any race. I do not have a problem w/t rule.But seeing she is a WOMAN and in respect to the women that fought a very long battle for equal rights .DP needs to earn her way in a sport that has been dominated by men by proving herself equal.And to do this is by racing or qualifying to get into the 500. By letting a MAN buy her way in.She is saying without a man buying me a spot in the 500 I could not do it.She is slapping everything that women have fought against. It is only a mans world.

And I've read there is some concern the comparison may become more obvious with John Cena waving the green flag at Daytona. ;)
Actually, I'm cool with John Cena. They say he is the most requested entertainer/sports figure for the children's Make a Wish Foundation, so he must be a good role model.
The only good thing I can say about wrestling. They Entertained the troops in Iraq & Afghanistan. Wrestling was great when I was growing up because they actually wrestled. Now all it is is azz & tah tahs.J/S

Entertainment is the key word in WWE

Personally, I believe that's always been the case with this "sport". And yes, they now market to the same audience that Go Daddy ads do.

Back to my comments, that does not minimize the good John Cena does by making a critically ill child's wish come true.

Help me a little here Debi. All I know is that Danica will compete in the 500 and Tony arranged it. I don't know what he did and I don't understand what his status as a past champ has to do with it. I've never paid much attention to that kind of stuff before. Thanks, Cat
Tony got Tommy Baldwin to allow Danica to drive the 10 car for so many races.. that is what he did.. Go Daddy will be on the car when she drives it.. the rest of the season David Reutimann will drive the 10 car if they get sponsorship. When Danica is in that car, it will be completely SHR with Zippy as crew cheif and a SHR pit team. I do not know for sure if Tommy Baldwin will get to use that pit crew for when David is in it, but it makes sense to have them working each week,. Tommy is going to get big benefits from this because the 10 car will be up to SHR standards.
I do believe it is like when Rick Hendrick had Kasey Kahne driving for red bull until he had a seat for him.. same deal.. look at how hendrick support made the red bull teams more competitive.. Tommy Baldwin made a great deal here I think.

last year when NASCAR sat Kyle busch out of an entire weekend because of his behavior in a truck race,, the fans were MAD.. NASCAR expects Danica to have a fan base,, they believe she does.. they want her in this race.. they do not want people to say "We spent this much money and did not get to see danica race".. that is why a deal was figured out to make CERTAIN danica is in a car..
NASCAR is banking on Danica..IF Rick Hendrick were smart,, he would rein in jimcreep and tell him,, "jimmie,,, this year, YOU push JR over the finish line.. you were supposed to do it last year at Dega but you messed up... this year YOU push JR over or I am teaming you up with that loser Jeffro Gordo" and Jimcrrep will say "I knew you liked Kasey best..."

Tony bought her a ride through Dave Blaney's points. It will
be funny now if Blaney fails to qualify.

much as I like dave Blaney.. he doesn't own the car he got those points for so they are not his at all... and he was not able to help the team as much as Tony Stewart will

Well it was his ride and he did get the points for his car owner. Little Miss Puss needs to earn her own points.For this reason I hope she don't get to first base in the Daytona 500.

She is an awful small girl. Wheeling a cup car in a pac of 40 + cars for 500 miles. It could take a toll on her. Its nothing like driving a Indy car.The best thing for her to do is to hang in the back & learn like many rookies of the past have done . J/S

Since that's what Tony seems to like to do then my guess is that's where they'll be. They'll make one or two charges to the front just so she can lead a lap and then drop back. It also wouldn't surprise me if she ends up wrecking him by accident while trying to make a push to the front at the end of the race.

To be perfectly honest when Tony pushes Ryan he wrecks him. And Ryan is an experienced driver. JMHO Tony does better being the driver pushed. How is DP going to handle the side draft. That has knocks out season drivers all out of whack when driving through the pac of cars. The only thing that could help DP is if they do have the 2 car draft.Where her & Tony would pretty much would be on their own. But if NASCAR has figured out a way to get rid of the 2 car draft ( PLEASE!!!! LOL ) I think its going to go against her. I really think she needs more time in a NW car before coming to cup. JMO

Tony's going to race as hard as he can to win at Daytona. He's not going to baby sit her around the track. If she can't stay with him he will be hooking up with someone else. Even if by some miracle Danica and Tony were running 1st and 2nd respectively, coming around turn four on the last lap, I would guarantee that you would see Tony take the checers.

you have not seen Ryan at Daytona.. he is wreckless... he honestly is.. that is why he and Tony do not draft together.. have you not ever noticed that during a restrictor plate race ryan is involved in a lot of wrecks??? he is not that good on restrictor plate tracks.. even when he WON because Kurt pushed him past the pack cuz nobody knew 2 cars could do that.. Ryan had not been a factor until that moment.. but I think Tony will be pushing Danica all day... I am sure they will have it rigged that they will not even have to change postions... Danica's sponsor really truly is like a treasure for SHR... they do not have to hunt for sponsorship for her car and it will really be helpful to the entire team.. so,, why shouldn't Danica get the SAME breaks NASCAR figures out for other drivers that bring in fans and money????? they ARE trying to save their sport...in this ROTTEN economy

Doubt he trusts danica to push him to the win she would be wrecking him....he will be sniffing her behind all race though... cause it is the closest tony will get to old T&A.

this will be the first race Tony will not have to make a deal for the entire race up until the last restart with a FORD DRIVER.. and I am GLAD because he is ABANDONED when the driver, no matter how "nice" they are drives another make and cannot help a Chevy driver over the finish line.... how many years do we have to see that happen before we are GLAD he has a teamate HE HIMSELF has trained to work with him?????? Tony could not trust Kyle nor denny at JGR and he cannot trust the slimeballs at HMS either.. we should be REJOICING that he for once is not begging people to draft with him, the BEST drafter on planet earth.
