I wouldn't go that far.Shes not gonna wake up and be Dale Sr ever, maybe Micheal Waltrip
I mean they was calling her the intimidator back when she won her 2 k & n races bumping people like Earnhardt did.
I was thinking something like winning a couple plate races and then doing the grid walk later in life.I wouldn't go that far.
MW won a few cup races.
Led a bunch of laps in the Country Time lemonade car during a Darlington race and probably was the fastest car that day.
Won a few Busch series races too. I don't see Deegan having anywhere near the speed to do those things
Danica was awful in Xfinity AND Cup lol driving top team cars. Deegan has yet to stink for that long and that is with the handicap of no practice which Danica had. I don't think you are comparing likes with likes.Danica ran cup dude, Deegan is awful in Trucks. Danica also has a 3rd in the Indy 500 and won an Indy race. True story. Ya know, big league stuff.
I'm not sure Deegan will make it all the way to Cup. Danica had to make the transition from a life of open wheel cars to full body stock cars and she struggled but so did Franchitti and Montoya. Danica finished ranked in 10th in the points in her only full Xfinity season. I'm comparing what I have since their are no head to head battles.Danica was awful in Xfinity AND Cup lol driving top team cars. Deegan has yet to stink for that long and that is with the handicap of no practice which Danica had. I don't think you are comparing likes with likes.
Her hype is dwindling because of poor performance in a third tier series. If she has money like you say she better go see Kyle Busch and strike a Truck deal but the problem with that is Toyota already let her go. They may welcome her back but I dont think they are gonna spend anymore money on her.Deegan has enough money and hype that I'd be surprised if he isn't in Cup eventually. Whether she's any good is another story but she wouldn't be the first person with money to move to Cup and stink it up.
Social media is a big part of what is keeping her in racing. Her sponsors know how popular she is on social media. If Danica had used it more, she may have been able to have stayed in a few more years.I am starting to wonder if her focus is changing from racing to being a darlin of social media.
