She just was not a good driver. I wanted her to do well, but because she seemed to have the attitude not because of her genitalia.

Personally, I think she has the talent to drive these cars, but I think she's just so physically tiny and lacks the body strength that it takes for a 36 race NASCAR season. Hand-eye stuff, reaction time.... I think she's fine as far as that goes.

That's why I think, primarily, that she failed to do better than she did. And then there was bad luck a time or two when she was running well on plate tracks. I had her on the scanner at a Busch race at Bristol back in 2012. I was impressed with how she ran that race. She did a good job. I believe Tony Eury, Sr (or Jr.) was her crewchief for this race.

Those types of runs were few and far between at either level, and when she did get them she never could put them into Ol Mo mode and build going forward.

:dunno:

eta

I'll tell another thing that I believe didn't help her, and I know how it affected the attitude in this household..... that soft porn shit she did when she had no business even entertaining such an idea. She showed the whole world that she just didn't have the goods, so why she wanted to do that left me believing that she was just whoring herself for the publicity.

I never really looked at her the same way again. Neither did my wife.

She went from "ehhh" in Indy Car to much harder to drive NASCARs with predictable results. She was used by NASCAR because of name recognition; she got name recognition primarily because of gender in a male dominated sport.

She owes it all to sexism.

To put it in a way NASCAR might understand: she could have perfect technique, footspeed, quickness, decision making.....but I don't want her playing left tackle for my NFL team.

Where she a male with the same racing results, she'd be an unknown on an obscure dirt track somewhere.


Hey, Duane could be the guy that hands the gas can to the real gasman on her pitcrew.

This was my main complaint against her. She did a live interview once, that I happened to catch, where she wondered why the news media had to sexualize her so often, and I had to wonder if someone held a gun to her head when she did those brainless, provocative GoDaddy commercials. I wasn't thrilled over the commercials, but it turned to disgust when I heard that hypocritical interview. Since then, I've had no use for her whatsoever.

ETA: I'm not a prude; I just cannot stand hypocrites.

You can't figure out what we are arguing about because you are the only one arguing. :crackup: :crackup: :crackup: :crackup:

I think we all agree that she sucked as a racer.

Nor, am I. But I do believe in virtue, discretion and self-respect though. And good judgement. I think we're all like that for the most part. I remember Angie Skinner, back in the day when she was on with Moody (and I still listened regularly) trying to tap dance around Danica's photo spread and the use of sex appeal. The topic was the effect it had on young boys, not from the harm perspective but from the titillation perspective.

Angie had a hard time with that, but she so was in Danica's corner as long as she could stand on the outside edge of it. That was the impression I walked away with, at any rate :D
