Wow... You really have no idea and are making a lot of negative comments with no real info on Nascar or its drivers. And its ok you dont like it or watch it. But kinda crazy for you to make comments for no real reason or thanyou just dont like the sport.
Yep its called losing draft.
She does suck first off... And NASCAR is almost impossible to get into unless you are priveledged. There are many other local drivers out there that are better than the NASCAR drivers that you watch on Sundays. They never get the opportunity because they don't have money.
Instead of taking shots at Danica they should be praising JR for pushing Johnson to victory.
I don't agree with you on that. I have watched it for years and have seen a lot of people come in with money and still can't drive with the big boys at all. So yea it does take something to drive one of these cars and not just your momma and daddy having money.
But there are plenty of guys out there as good or better that will never get the opportunity because of this. We're not getting the best of the best like you see in real sports. Oh yea, NASCAR is not a sport by the way
Jk... I think NASCAR is a sport lol
There are a lot that worked their way up from Saturday night short tracks. But nowadays it is like a lot of other things and you have to somehow get lucky. Just like the kid that took over Matt Kenseths car, he is from Olive Brach Mississippi and worked his way through some other series and got a shot with Roush.
Ha. You beat me to it. Plus one.
Back to Patrick, don't buy into the ESPN hype machine. She is nothing more than a promotional tool. I'm sure she will "win" a few races though. I'm surprised they didn't try to help her out today. Would have made good business sense.
Gotcha. She sucks because of all the drivers that watched on TV are much better. Nice logic.
No... She sucks cause she sucks. What has she done to prove that she's any good? And please don't say she came in 8th place today.
I don't see the bassmaster classic on ESPN or sportscenter highlights. When it gets to that level let me know.

I'm not arguing she is great. Just that she doesn't suck. She had a great car no doubt, but she did what it took to stay up front. She didn't make any bad errors really. Like Trevor said, just give credit where it is do.

Haha. Good stuff. I'll buy that.
Congrats on your best finish ever Danica. That 8th place trophy will hang proud on your mantle for many coming years. It should look nice next to your Godaddy.com photo shoot pics.
1984 300ZX Anniversary Model, 1970 Olds 442 W-30 & Pepper Bird
That would be a perfectly accurate and valid argument, if you had talked about how much coverage each on ESPN. But you didn't.
And as you requested, I am letting you know ESPN does cover bassmaster. You are welcome.
The Bassmaster TV shows highlight the Bassmaster Classic and the Bassmaster Elite Series tournament fishing competitions and air on ESPN.
Fair enough. At least it's not blasted on sports center.
Well if this how you measure... What about Dale JR he is talked about allthe time considered the most popular driver in nascar bout yet no championships and 1 win in the last 100 and something races. She made history twice this weekend. First women on pole for Daytona 500 &first to lead a lap.
It is not I agree with that. But again that wasn't the point of your 1st post.
And that is fine because not everyone likes NASCAR. I like it ok, but it is has gone down for the last 10 years or so. Also I am not that concerned about it because I keep focusing on your sig picks.
I know I'm just not a fan, but touche
And I hate fishing, so we are all good.
I think Dale Jr. is talked about too much also. He's average
And if she's any kind of competitor, she's not happy about setting two records because she's a women. She should be upset because she wasn't even close to winning the race. But, I could see her being proud of finally not crashing
IMO, Danica doesn't suck or she would have never been given the opportunity to be where she is. That said, she is living off being a woman and not being a good NASCAR driver. If she could atleast win a race at some point then she would earn more respect. If you did a blind resume test, nobody would confuse hers as being from a good driver. She wants people to stop viewing her as a woman driver and only as a driver but then she is given a pass for her less than stellar résumé because she is a woman. Just my 2 cents.
Oh, and Dale jr sucks too and is where he is cuz of who his dad was, not from accomplishments.
