Companies who sponors teams want to associate themselves with someone who WINS. That little piece of white trash can't win in IRL. She'll run laps down every week and probably get in the way of real stock car drivers.

I heard a racing dude on the radio today saying that she has no intent of going to NASCAR because she has absolutley no stock car experience and she knowshe wouldn't do well there. The guy on the radio was saying that her dad is kind of an Archie Manning type who is a bit to involved in his kid's career at this point. I guess her contract is up at the end of this season and by him starting rumors about NASCAR, he might be raising her stock (no pun intended)for the next contract.

actually that makes the most sense. she has a much better chance of being a winner in irl than in cup. she probably would never win in cup, and she pretty much means the world in the irl series. i would have to say irl is where her bread is buttered.

I have to agree with ya there. There's no doubt in my mind that Danica could gain stock car experience very quickly. I would love to see her enter the NASCAR ranks!

Someone mentioned that her father is heavily involved in her career. I wonder how her hubby feels about it. Hmmm...

That's exactly what the analyst said. He thought she was actually doing pretty well in IRL for this early in her career. He said that long time IRL drivers take 27 races before they win on average. He also said that her personality is too competitive to take the time and poor results that she would have to endure to learn to drive stock cars.

He wasn't saying it in a bad way. I think he meant that even though she could probably end up making way more endorsement money in NASCAR, taking a step back to learn again just wouldn't be worth it to her. If thats the case I have a lot of respect for that.

You watch...she'll cave in and run to the cash....do you think only "team" athletes are money hungry???

NASCAR is HUGE (although I'm not a fan...I still know a successful business when I see it)...The endorsement money alone will be way too much to pass up

Just my opinion....

Danica is smokin'!!


A friend of mine who is a big NASCAR fan said it would be an easier transition from Indy cars to stock cars rather than vice versa........so maybe she could make a successful switch???
