Someone mentioned she is not a good driver. Her results from IndyCar prove this wrong. I think she has big potential in NASCAR but she needs to change race teams. She would probably have better results if she raced for Hendrick or Gibbs.
Stewart Haas is the closest thing to Hendrick. Uses all their equipment.
And she's a bad driver. Hendrick doesn't need another driver that's all hype but produces little results (88).

The only reason she still has a NASCAR ride is because she is an attractive woman and sells. There is another side to NASCAR than driving a car, you have to be able to talk, being able to sell your sponsors is pretty huge in that industry. Danica is absolutely horrid on a dirt track, she will even tell you herself that she hates racing on dirt because she gets dirty. Most NASCAR drivers got their start on dirt. Clint Bowyer comes out and races an IMCA modified with us every summer and he's just as fast on dirt as he is on asphalt. If your good, you can figure out and drive anything. So its the race teams fault because she wads up her race car nearly every race? She blows.

Over 30 losers on the track every weekend and the only person people want to talk about is Danica.

How much racing experience do you have on dirt or asphalt?

I think they limit them on rides like that. When Mike Wallace or whoever interviewed Jr while driving a fews years back they gave them a Vette speed limited to 120 for the ride.

But it's really cool to see drivers, or any celebrities, get involved with real issues and not be buttheads.

How much do you have?

There is no question that a pro racer at ANY level would embarrass a non-racer on any race track.

I've met Clint Bowyer on a couple of occasions, also watched him race on dirt in an IMCA modified the last couple years against my local circle burners. Clint Bowyer is one hell of a dirt driver, but he doesn't embarrass the top wheel men where I live. Plenty of people making laps at local dirt tracks with the talent and ability to race at higher levels that will never get a chance to do it. My racing experience is not with driving, but with engine building, car building, car setup, and everything else I gotta do to field 3 dirt track cars every weekend. Asphalt is a hell of a lot easier to race on than dirt. If you're good you can adapt to any sort of track, Danica can't. She's horrible on dirt. Dirt is very much a driver surface, you have to be extremely smooth, and understand that slower is faster.
