Much better than Paola, I'm afraid. Although, LR wouldn't agree. FWIW, Danica is in the top 25 in Las Vegas practice, ahead of some very notable names. LR will probably say that top-25 sucks.

He also would bet himself finishing better, and with those paydays if he believed that he would be out there trying to qualify.

Driving a top ten car to 25th is great. She's the best. 'We' all know you know everything about NASCAR. You even watched one race!

My friend said she hasnt even finished a race yet, is it still possible to be in 25th place after not finishing one race?

The only thing that is possible here is that someone that didn't finish one race and ended up 31st, 3 laps down and had two pit row speeding penalties in the other race is considered 'good'. I hear they are already clearing a spot in the NASCAR Hall of Fame for her and Pulley is going to do the introductions.

In breaking news:

"Danica Patrick has qualified 37th. This will be her third NASCAR race, but the last one before she begins a four-month hiatus to return to IndyCar racing.'

Wonderful news! I bet they never mentioned who qualified 36th. Pully is right again! She's getting it!

But she's improving! At least she isn't 18th!

Up to the minute Danica update! She was lapped in 53 laps, which is typical of somone that can't drive, and on lap 84 understeered her car badly in a turn and smashed right into the 81 car and took that poor guy out too. Too bad that sucker had the misfortune of ending up near her when she f*cked up. I guess 25th in practice don't mean as much to me as it does to you, but I'm sure you will come up with another excuse why her shytty driving is really very good. I'll be dying to hear it. After all, you are the expert.

You need to hang out with smater friends. Do you always listen to your friends?

FYI, she DID finish last weekend in Cali. She was taken out in a wreck in Daytona (not her fault), while running pretty well.
