Daytona qualifying is basically about who has the most power. All this proves is that when she finishes 30th in the race, she will have done it with a 1st place car.

Now if they can just complete one lap before Carl Edwards screws up and takes her and three other people out like last year...

Montoya not blowing up the track would also be cool.

Exactly! I just hope we don't have another any more issues, like pot holes, fried tracks, exploding track trucks, rain, cats or dogs living together...

Remember when they had that hole in the track that just got bigger and bigger... I went to a pro hockey game well after the race started and finished watching the race well after I got back... crazy

The most she is, is an average driver. NASCAR and the media have turned her into a publicity stunt and media darling.
