    If this is true then yes, she did it to herself but the way she was starting to turn the corner with him doesnt make sense why she wanted a change. I remember in particular at I think Kansas or Chicago passing JJ and Dale Jr on the outside to get in to the top 5 during the race and it wasnt a tire strategy or fuel call, she was on the same cycle, It immediately got my attention because I had some concerns about her driving style and not being aggressive enough and that told me with the car under her she would attack.

    you are right she did attack a lot but the walls didn't fight back.

    I could show you numerous high light reels of her crashes, but why, you won't believe it anyway. She never had a clue how to drive a sprint car. Open wheelers are much easier. Ask Alonso.

    I can show you highlights of her getting crashed on numerous occasions, sveral of them her getting hooked in the left rear quarter

    I haven't been watching nascar that long but it was easy for anyone to see that danica was really bad. Why does everyone make excuses? She crashed herself more often then she got crashed. It did not matter who was crew chief the results were still the same. The worst part is she was never to blame. It was always some elses fault. She had the best team but ran in the back alot and it wasn't her fault? Hahahaha. Dunning Kruger Effect

    yeah she started wrecking when Jr put her in an Xfinity car, and it went on from there. It really didn't take long to see she couldn't drive an Xfinity car and it was unbelievable to me when they announced she was going to drive a much harder sprint car. She if you could call it that, did ok in a much easier to drive and set up open wheel car in a much less competitive series at the time. Nascar being a business that needs outside money from the business community took the money she brought and a star was born for a bit until the money went away. That is about all I would write about her career if I was a racing writer. A flash in the pan of the racing world.

    Yeah I remember Jack Vill somebody dumping her battling at the front. Her fault I guess for being there

    If you are good your vocation you will suffer some bad breaks and be the recipient of some good ones. Over your career you can’t receive enough bad breaks to keep you down if you are good and you can’t receive enough good breaks to prop you up if you are bad.

    If Miss Patrick and Mr Rodgers ever get married can you imagine that bank account? I'm getting cold chills just thinking about it.

    IDK where the idea comes from that I dislike anyone here. In fact I really like Lew and SOI as they are a complete hoot. I like your opinions and your thought processes as you often provide an angle I had not considered. If I disliked someone I would not interact with them. Have a happy December

    Standonit does not have a leg to stand on...you never have said losing fans, taking out seats, are a bad thing. Well one day you won't be able to say Daytona in February they will be racing if the bleeding continues.

    Oh, believe me, I'm definitely going to stick around. I was a little "naive" about how much I actually knew about NASCAR until I looked through here and realized that I don't know **** about NASCAR except for a few things.....and I wanna learn as much as I can because I got bit by the NASCAR "bug" big-time this year after seeing some Dale, Jr. interviews and some of his old race footage. I appreciate the welcome! I'm also a huge Elvis Presley fan so I'll be splitting my time between here and the Elvis forums I visit (and any other NASCAR or motorsport-related forums I find) :D


    And to get back on track, Danica did this to herself. She sucked when it came to Xfinity & Sprint cars both.....period.

    As far as I know all you have to do is ask for podium access and it is granted. I understand that it is full of political chatter so it ain’t for me!!!

    nah it's just static, nothing more, not important enough to have to do that. I deal with crappy things and lousy attitudes all the time. I'm thinking about changing my screen name.

    Nothing to debate 5 seasons in a SHR car.
    No top 5s, few top 10s, never a threat to win a cup race. To the best of my knowledge she is the only full time non relief SHR driver to record zero wins.
    Just lots of excuses, blaming others everything but expressed gratitude.

    In spite of it all she was ground breaking for bringing something new to Nascar, a one of a kind.
    But victim mentality is the message she conveys.

    Who are these people that think the sky is falling? I have no doubt that you will be glued to your tv come Feb and beyond and I am confident you will like everything you see. Not a bad gig at all.

    She's screwing up Aaron Rogers career. Remember the Tony Romo / Jessica Simpson curse?

    This may be Ay-Ayron's worst NFL season (other then him breaking is collar bone).

    Had to do it.

    She got his coach fired. It never ends, but they complete each other's sentences, so it's all good....and he buys dinner. If he keeps losing, she will dump him, and make a run at Brady.
