Danica Patrick’s day ended in disappointment after she blew a right-front tire during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Subway 500 and wrecked on the frontstretch at Phoenix International Raceway.

The accident on Lap 185 was further compounded when David Ragan slammed into her No. 10 GoDaddy.com Chevy SS.

Gotta put up with the Danica show if I want to watch the rest of the race huh?

Obviously Nas has long since transitioned from a bunch of good old boys banging fenders to a huge money making operation.

The Fox contract for example is > $300m per year. Danica brings viewers (at least for now) so she's gonna be the "fair haired girl".

LOL all I can think of is the Jim Furyk / Clint Bowyer commercial.

I was wondering who that was next to Clint.

Don't get me wrong, golf requires a tremendous amount of skill, but certainly not the strength, concentration and reflexes needed to drive race cars side by side at speeds over 200mph. Best of luck to your SIL.

Well, I suppose you've got a point there. I get the picture now.

I think the greatest objection to the Danica-type disruptions is the celebratory messaging that frames the original venue and participants as hostile to, and unworthy of modern, but superficial standards.

As far as Danica is concerned, I have no problem with her involvement, but I’m not plastered to the tube having to endure the apparently annoying hype.

Hope she’s okay.

Social Justice requires that she be awarded a win at some point. I can see them retroactively disqualifying the 7 drivers that placed before her at Daytona and awarding her the win. I’m sure there were enough wheel nudges, improper passing, dirty looks and obvious sexual discrimination to justify the action .... or at least that’s the impression I got from the “professional” news readers at MSM.

I do not understand all the controversy over a female driving a racing car. I say let the female drive the racing car.

All they do anyway is go round and round in circles in cars that have corporate logos painted all over them. I guess if that is what people like to watch, let them watch and let the drivers drive.

Here's something kinda interesting I ran across a couple months ago. Yes, it's Larry King, but it's still interesting. I didn't know Danica was married.
