You may know what it takes to field a competitive car on dirt, but if youíve never turned a wheel yourself then Danica would kick your butt around your local track. If you donít believe me then ask Clint Bowyer the next time you see him.

In a car with no safety equipment and no helmets, 120 is about as fast as you would want to go. Sure the car could go faster, but would you want to risk killing a car full of breast can dr survivors?

I wonder who owns the engine in this car, tunes the engine, makes setup changes at the track every weekend 7 months out of the year? I do.

She could beat me on asphalt or most any average joe that's never driven on asphalt, but on dirt she is horrible. She raced a late model in Tony Stewart's prelude to the dream benefit race he use to do yearly, she literally destroyed that race car from hitting the wall at least half a dozen times. Cruz Pedregon a NHRA driver can drive on dirt better than Danica! I will stand by my view of her being a terrible driver, watching her park her car on the first lap into the wall at Kansas Speedway speaks for itself. She's beautiful and she sells.

Clint Bowyer never raced asphalt until he went to NASCAR, he raced IMCA Modifieds at Lake Side Speedway which is a dirt track.

Why do I keep referencing dirt? Because its a much more difficult surface to race on. Asphalt always has an ample amount of bite where as dirt either has bite when its wet or a whole bunch of nothing when its slick as glass dry slick. The point is with ample time on a asphalt track anybody with a lick of driving skill could do pretty well at it. If she's so damn good why hasn't she won and why she horrible on dirt? I would love to ask her about car setup and chassis adjustments, I bet she knows little. Anybody can sit in a seat and tell someone the car is tight or loose, they don't make the adjustments. Thats where dirt drivers have an advantage, they make all their setup changes, most of them have no pit crew.

But this thread is about breast cancer awareness.

Men get breast cancer too. The camaro is in support of both men & women. But really, does matter who is driving the car or what type of cancer it is supporting? It is supporting a good cause - the fight against cancer. It honors the men & women who have lost the fight and those who are still fighting.

I'm a Fireman and we wear Pink shirts during October but it also has a Purple Ribbon on the front for all cancers. We get very positive comments on them.
