Danica Patrick will never make the chase for the Sprint Cup. You compare her to Juan Pablo, who won races in F1. Juan Pablo is a world class driver who has struggled to find himself even remotely competitive in this series. Whether she has the team and equipment to do it or not, until she does something to prove herself as not only a contender for a consistent top 20, a contender for a top 10 every week, and then a top five driver, there is little else we need to even say about her. Not only that, but to have the skill, and ability to be able to go out and win any time, anywhere, she hasnt proven it yet. She blamed her woes at a road course on a shoe. a freaking shoe!! she cant do it, and to still be making this argument, and still trying to shove "danica nation" down our throats is a complete waste of time. She will have her moments, much like paul menard with his fuel mileage win, she has won before. on fuel mileage. and like menard, she will have top ten cars every now and then, although in the hands of a more capable driver, those would be winning race cars. yes she has some skill. these cars are not easy to drive, nor can just anyone get in and make it a whole race without putting it into the fence, but when you are predicting that she will be able to get into the chase after 3 seasons, and do this against drivers who have been in stock cars their entire careers, and even still say she could win a championship is preposterous. She will sell t-shirts, she will undoubtedly have a sponsor for a good while, be it go daddy, or anyone else who comes along, but at the end of the day, at the end of her career, she will only be an also ran in the record books.

"You talking"? Grammar check, moron. As usual, realdumb can't address the subject. Drwafica will be approaching if not into the other side of 30's in 3-5 years. Her skills and reactions are poor now and will only get worse.

Danica isn't going anywhere. We definitely won't see her in the Chase. She's an overrated nobody, undeserving of any of the talk about her. The only reason anybody has even heard of her is because she has boobs. Had the been exactly the same except male, nobody would have heard of Daniel Patrick.

My thoughts exactly. She would have been another Regan Smith or Josh Wise or someone like that.
