Video: Danica Patrick wrecks Sam Hornish Jr. after checkered flag
cbssports ^ | May 05, 2012 | Brian De Los Santos

Posted on 05/05/2012 9:29:36 PM PDT by rawhide

Danica Patrick wasn't pleased with Sam Hornish Jr. in Saturday's Nationwide Series race at Talladega and made it known by wrecking him after the checkered flag.

In light of what had just happened moments earlier with Eric McClure having to be airlifted to the hospital after a multi-car wreck, her behavior is all the more astonishing. However, neither driver was called to the NASCAR hauler after the incident.

Hornish finished 12th and Patrick 13th in a race won by Joey Logano.

Sam Hornish Jr.:

"... After the race was over, we got right-reared by the 7 car (Danica Patrick). I don't know what she had in her head, but she decided to right-rear us, wreck the car after the race was over. That's really frustrating. It's not the worst day ever, but not what we wanted. I feel like we may have gone a little too early. We got separated and then Brad got wrecked. “

Danica Patrick:

"I don't know what happened. Sam came up to me after the race and apologized, so I'm not sure what was wrong with his car, but he came across the track at the front of the start/finish line."

That is about the most twisted logic I have seen on this thread.

Thank you! Professional sports are about money, and good-looking women draw paying male eyeballs. And she must be a reasonably good race driver, or she’d be dead, or consistently dead last.

I hope they all enjoy spending their money!

Amen. This reminds me why I usually stay off the NASCAR threads. I really don’t understand why Danica is being held to a different standard than the rest of the field. I can only assume she is supposed to be home cooking supper.

I’m using twisted logic? So people accusing me of being a misogynist because I don’t like Danica Patrick and disapprove of how she wrecked Sam Hornish AFTER THE RACE are using sound logic?

Your statement is laughable.

Apparently, if you don’t like Danica Patrick, certain posters are frothing at the mouth to say you hate all women.

Who’s using twisted logic again?

You’re a flipping idiot if that’s why you think many of us don’t approve of Danica Patrick. The reason I don’t like her is because she IS A CRAPPY DRIVER who is taking a spot away from another more deserving driver. It’s essentially Affirmative Action for NASCAR and it makes me mad as hell.

Until she proves that she can run with the big boys (which she never has) then she needs to stay out of the Sprint Cup until she proves she can.

It’s blatantly obvious the only reason she’s in the Sprint Cup is because she’s a woman. If she was a man she wouldn’t even be in nationwide.

She needs to prove she can race at the top before she is placed in the top.

you said “I have no problem with Danica serving justice DURING THE RACE. I do have a problem that she wrecked him AFTER the race.

If she had done it in another race later in the season, I would have said “well done!”. As it stands now, she just increased my dislike of her.”

So you would have preferred she wreck 10 or 15 cars? Dealing justice after the race is over, has a lot of history by a lot of drivers. I didn’t call you a name. I should have simply said, “you may not be stupid but your posts sure look that way” It’s racing dude, let the lady race. Just post, “I hate Danica”.

------------------------------------

Ridiculous.

Danica is disliked in the racing world--was loudly booed at Indy last year--because she is an affirmative action hire. Popular with sponsors because she is considered, by some, to be attractive, even though she is less skilled as a driver than her far less well-known male competitors.

Sports is supposedly one of the few places where one's skill is all that matters. She gets a ride because of her gender, not because she is a great driver. She is a novelty act, and nothing more.

In effect, Danica is an affirmative action hire by the sponsors, although I'm sure NASCAR/Indy doesn't mind the extra publicity she generates.

My point is that she is taking a place that a more skilled driver deserves. Kind of like the current occupant of the White House.

Junior gets a ride because he is a skilled driver. He has won races in his career, and is way up in the points standings this year. Yes, he gets more attention than other drivers who have not won in four years, but he certainly deserves a ride.

Personally, I resent all forms of "affirmative action," as should any conservative. Do you?

Nope. She is a professional driver because of her gender. By definition, an affirmative action hire.

Apparently you think that more qualified individuals should not get a job because they are of a more "advantaged" race or gender. We'll have to just agree to disagree on this one.

2 things. 1) I’m a 22-year old fresh out of college. Get it right. 2) You still haven’t addressed my point about Danica being in NASCAR thanks to, essentially, AA.

Please address my point rather than speculating on my current living conditions although I don;t expect much of an argument based on my inference about your IQ from this thread.

P.S.: U mad bro?

no. the field is full of drivers who don’t win, but Danica is keeping another out. but in your world the boys get a pass. go get some sponsors and take the car away from her. it’s about money dude. free enterprise. NASCAR is a non-government oganization. i have nothing else to say to you since you can’t frame an argument, you’re dragging me down.

From what I saw, Hornish and Patrick were racing to the line.
Danica had the mommentum on the out side line.

Hornish came up the track and squeezed her to the wall.
Danica got hot and showed him how it's done correctly.

Although this was overkill on Danica's part, punching him out after the race probably wasn't an option either.

Apparently you are unaware that private employers everywhere are pressured to hire less qualified individuals because of affirmative action. It is not just government that employs quotas.

Even in high profile fields like athletics (coaches), show business, and TV news, employers are pressured to hire based on skin tone or gender, because they are afraid of being accused of racism or sexism.

It is unfortunate that you fail to understand this. Good day.

He drove her right into the wall

Wrong, he didn't drive her anywhere, he wasn't behind her wheel.

Her lack of skill put her where she was, and after the race retaliated like a scorned girl on prom night.

As espoused by a true professional. Got it.

No you don't get it. In my other life, I was trained in evasive maneuver techniques etc, in modified vehicles and operated in 7 different countries for various high profile clients/individuals.

How about you Mr. mazda?

“DANICA IS IN NASCAR BECAUSE OF AFFIRMATIVE ACTION.”

Oh bullsh*t...

Patrick is in Nascar because she took up racing in Go-Carts at age 10, and at age 16, her parents took a huge chance and moved to England so she could race in British NAtional Series events.

She has come up the same way as any other driver in the system, without a money-bags racing name for a father.

BTW Mr. mazda, speaking of Mazda, in earlier life, I also spent about 3 year as a test driver for an high end engineering firm, for rotary engine modification testing.

I drove professionally for a better part of 12 years, but got out of that field years ago and went on to other things.

So we’re to take your word on it blowhard? I don’t have to qualify my credentials because I live it. Until you have actually driven in door to door racing competition, all your time of evasive driving techniques are just parking lot wars. I stand on my assertions from years of experience not borne of situational orchestration.

It wasn’t good enough for you that I said what she did was wrong but I can also attest both have had their posteriors lightened in the Oval Office (the one on wheels and not in DC). Whatever problem you have with her is yours alone. I gained respect for her abilities while watching several Indy drivers on practice runs at Homestead making 32 second laps with wheels inside each other and NOBODY flinching.

So take your “professional” evasive position and enjoy it, because nobody else is interested or intimidated enough to give you the credibility you so desire.

Sounds like you approve of government mandated affirmative action. If so, I am curious why you choose to participate in a conservative website like FR

Affirmative action is entirely inconsistent with conservative principles of free economics. If you support AA, please join DU, or post your feelings on the comments section of the New York Times or MSNBC. Perhaps those are better suited to your politics.

In case you failed to notice, three years ago America made the biggest AA hire in history, with disastrous consequences.

The misogyny claim comes from the fact that NASCAR races are filled with examples of guys who retaliate for something the other driver does to them throughout the race, after the race and even in the garage and while being interviewed on TV. You and some others seem to hold Danica to a different standard of conduct when she's done nothing that thousands of other racers have done to each other since racing began.

I am thrilled there is something Danica could have done to meet with your approval. Whew! My day is complete, Kiddo! Have a great evening.

I am saying that you support affirmative action, which is an anti-conservative, anti-freedom viewpoint. You are entitled to your opinion, but that opinion is not conservative.

Please do not accuse me of supporting Ron Paul, as I never have. In return, I promise not to accuse you of advocating a vote for Romney...oh wait, you have advocated a vote for Romney in this forum.

I did not stay home in 2008. I voted for McCain, but largely because of Palin. Although McCain was a terrible campaigner and often spouted annoyingly liberal rhetoric, his Senate voting record was relatively conservative. Romney, who you support, has a staunchly liberal record of governance.

Obviously we have very different viewpoints about politics and the proper role of government. We will have to agree to disagree.

Patrick is in Nascar because she took up racing in Go-Carts at age 10, and at age 16, her parents took a huge chance and moved to England so she could race in British NAtional Series events.

She has come up the same way as any other driver in the system, without a money-bags racing name for a father.

Danica Patrick

Danica Sue Patrick (born March 25, 1982) is an American auto racing driver, model and advertising spokeswoman. She is the most successful woman in the history of American open-wheel racing, being the only woman to win in the IndyCar Series as well as holding the highest finish by a woman at the Indianapolis 500 of 3rd place. She competed in the series from 2005 to 2011. She currently competes in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.

Starting in kart racing, she later raced Formula Ford in England before moving back to the US and moving up to IndyCars. Patrick was named the Rookie of the Year for both the 2005 Indianapolis 500 and the 2005 IndyCar Series season. With her win in the 2008 Indy Japan 300, Patrick became the first woman to win an Indy car race. She placed 3rd in the 2009 Indianapolis 500, which was both a personal best for her at the track, and the highest finish by a woman in the event's history. Patrick holds the IRL record for most consecutive races running at the finish. As of October 2, 2011, she has completed 50 consecutive races in the running (the next highest total in the record book is 32).[1]? During her time in IndyCar, Patrick drove for Rahal Letterman Racing from 2005–2006, and Andretti Autosport from 2007-2011.

In 2010, Patrick began racing in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, driving the #7 GoDaddy.com Chevrolet Impala for JR Motorsports part-time. She also has an equity stake in her #7 team.[2] She had her best career finish of 4th in series on March 5, 2011 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway—the best finish by a woman in a NASCAR top-circuit.

Sounds to me like she earned her ride and knows how to race : ),

What I don’t get is when a woman chooses to compete in a man’s world at the same playing level as the men, without any special treatment and earns it the hard way, whether that is in sports or business; some will excoriate her if she shows any weakness or fails to exhibit the same level of male competitiveness and aggressiveness. But on the other hand, if she does, she will be excoriated for doing so.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m no fan of Martha Stewart but she was vilified for being a hardnosed business woman, put in federal prison for doing nothing more or less than a lot of others have done that got a mere slap on the wrist compared to what she got. Yet many hold someone like Donald Trump or Bill Gates or Steve Jobs, real SOB’s in business, as some sort of Gods of Business and held by many in great esteem. Donald Trump is a “tough businessman” and yet Martha Stewart is a “bitch”.

Dale Earnhardt was known as the Intimidator for a reason and it was not because of his gentle nature and unfailingly sportsman like conduct. And didn’t Tony Stewart get into more than a few scrapes on the track and punch someone out after a race? Didn’t he loose a sponsorship and get fined by NASCAR over that? Yet nobody is questioning his ability to drive.

So Danica has a bit of a hot head. Hornish ran her into the wall and she returned the favor. Earnhartdt would have probably done the same thing. Maybe Hornish will not mess with her next time. ; ),
