Danica wants to be known as a just a race card driver, not a woman race car driver!

She joins a great list of drivers like David Gilliland, Jeff Green, and my personal favorite Loy Allen Jr...

Good publicity stunt for Nascar. How long before they let her win a race?

They won't, I laugh when people think NASCAR is staged. If it was, Dale Junior would of won a championship by now. Heck, NASCAR penazlied him in 2004, possibly costing him the title. NASCAR isn't staged. It isn't hard to get the pole at Daytona, just need a fast car.

Wouldn't surprise me at all if SHR gave Danica a better car than Tony and Ryan because she needs more help from her equipment than they do.

Not to mention winning the pole means less for the Daytona 500 than for any other race in terms of winning.

I think the polesitter has an average finish of about 16th the last ten years or so.

Brad Keselowski is a perfect example. Didn't win one pole last year because his team wasn't great at setting up cars for fast qualifying runs, then he goes out and wins when it counts: on raceday.

She will need a lot of help this year. And yep, it means almost nothing at restrictor plate tracks. Heck, lately winning at these races are a crapshoot, that's why I love the new cars. It is more about handling, it takes skill again to win at Daytona.

It may not be staged, but a few years back after Adam Petty died, Kyle won the next non points race they had. Looked really really funny.

Stenhouse actually hasn't looked all that impressive this week

That being said I still couldn't take Danica

Stenhouse wins, as he managed to get Danica to date him. So he wins no matter what.

Danica is on the pole i have dollar bills is she on the main stage :)!:)!:)!

37Jetson 02-24-2013 06:59 PM

Poor Danica almost got ran over on that last lap. I think that she is good for the sport. She is a legitimate driver and is easy on the eyes.
