"My bad, poor math. Actual number was 4% (18 wins over 363 races) versus 1.2% (1 win over 81 races)"

Math doesn't matter. One has 2 championships and many race wins. The other won one race on gas mileage because the 3 better drivers in front of her had to pit in the last 3 laps. Never even raced anyone to the finish even once. No math needed.


"Stewart already said she's gong to have a hard time, transitioning from open-wheel to NASCAR."

And Tony Stewart is just being polite. He really meant that she is going to suck because she was never a very good race car driver to begin with. No history of winning at any level. He doesn't want to slam her too much though. She will fill a few more seats, and that what the whole thing is about.

You seem again to overlook Danica is moving up and improving, Dale is falling & has been declining since about hid 3rd or 4th season.

That was my point about 60 posts back. It's fun to debate, but the truth of the matter is that... it's all talk. Until the rubber hits the asphalt this racing season, no one will know. I think she has a shot, LR doesn't. Who knows? As Barb said, at least this thread remained civil (unlike days past).

This weekend should be fun, though. Danica is in her first ARCA race, which will be her first "real" test in a closed-wheel car. Should be fun. I hope it's on Speed, but it'll probably only be on the NASCAR channel.

Your right Dr. I'm hoping for a good season for her, and from where I'm looking all points show a good decision on the owners & sponsors. She's consistantly improved, looks good on the track & on the camera. There's alot of great sponsor $ out there to be had that a woman can better represent, call it a novelty if you may, but $ talks & BS walks. Right now shes getting paid & making the news so, the BS has to walk.
