The article states she is 1 for 180 races. I'm thinking not on the winning in NASCAR. Just like Jr., I think she's brought in hoping to snag more sponsor money.

The 1 race she did "win" was a split event, with 1/2 the field going to japan the other half racing in long beach ca on the same day. The 1 win kinda doesnt count.

If you take the time to check her record as a part time driver, she is already ahead of many guys who made it to the NNS. In fact, she is better than Jimmy Johnson was. LOL

Wang can't wait see Danica in laces, see hel clash into Jimmy Johnson, brame him, then punch his rights out on pit load.

Diecast and bobble butt sales is what it's all about. She most definitely cannot win a race against the top drivers in the cup races.
