Danica really is very pretty. I hope she does very well in this year's Indy 500. Do you know how she qualified, tony?

BTW... Patrick is her maiden name. Her married name is Hospenthal. She married a physical therapist last November.

GO DANICA!i think shes starting somewhere between 10-20 (midpack), but im not too sure. i dont even know where little al or michael andretti are starting (2 descent stories for this years race)

koopa, her looks definitely contribute to her hype and shes not shy to admitt she uses whatever tools available, to gain exposure for her and her team, but she can definitely drive the wheels off a car. she hasnt won a race yet, but that probably has more to do with equipment than it does talent. even if she were ugly she is still the 1st woman to lead the indy 500 and that in itself would gain alot of hype. keep in mind she was a rookie last year and she is now driving with the big dogs who male rookies cant even beat. shes the real deal.

I agree, tony, that Danica's the real deal. I think she was on the pole for last year's Indy 500, wasn't she? I really would like to see her do well in this year's race. A friend of mine and her boyfriend are driving out to see the Indy 500 this year. I'm sure they'll have a great time.

She's a real driver. She raced in all the league's in Europe open wheelers have to to earn their stripes, and, by all accounts, she's a really good wheel (wo)man.

The fact that she's hot will always be held against her, just like the fact that Jeff Gordon, despite paying all the due's (maybe more than some), and coming up the ranks the hard way is STILL despised to this day because he A) Didn't look like the Marlboro Man, B) Could speak English, and C) Wasn't from the South.

People forget that she's only 23, and that's still young in the sport of racing. Once she starts winning, people will realize she's the real deal.

She is a good driver, and very attractive. But the P.A. boys the Andrettis i`ll be rooting for.

is there anything more lame than jim neibors (gomer pyle) singing at the brickyard. "well gooooly"

this will probably be a 3 horse race with dan weldon, sam hornish jr, and helio castroneves (the spiderman fence climb is awesome). helio is probably the coolest open wheeler. but i will say hornish jr. wins.

i really wouldnt mind seeing michael andretti or danica win though

I met Mario Andretti at the Milwaukee 250...........a long time ago. At that time, they had the event on a 1/2 mile track at a fair grounds. He was a really nice guy. His son looks about 16. LOL

this is in reference to Tony's post about Andretti. I do not know how to delete a post. help please?

damn, and i cant rep myself.

one hell of a run for the andretti's. i was pulling for micheal, just cause i know of him more but what about his son, 19 year old rookie marco? i was sure he had it won. for him and his dad to come in 2nd and 3rd is awesome. indy racing is kinda boring but the last 5 laps were killer, especially with the andretti storylines. 2nd closest finish for the 500 ever. danica had a hell of a run staying on the lead lap (she was bitten by fuel mileage and cautions 2 times today) and finished 8th. there should be no doubt that she is the real deal.

I was pointing out Dale Jarrett to my buddy, and, since Michael is only about 4 feet tall, I didn't see him and came damned close to taking his eye out. I will attest, the dude had some pretty quick reflexes.
