Still, all-Danica-all-the-time clearly has a rankling effect. You hear plenty of jokes this week about his DIS now stands for Danica International Speedway, or how the television network airing the Nationwide event should be renamed DSPN, or how the city should just change its name to Danica Beach. When Kurt Busch appeared in the media center on Friday, one writer asked if the interview session would be transcribed. "If Danica were here, it would be transcribed," Busch quipped. And via Twitter, there was this snarky broadside from Scott Speed: "According to the 'media' not only is Danica the most amazing racing driver since Dale [Earnhardt] Sr. but she is also related to Jesus."

Gives a whole new meaning to trading paint in NASCAR!
Ouch! Do it again.
Montoya was the media darling for 2 yrs.
The media thought he would come over to the ‘Cracker’ league and tear it up. Show the good ol’ boys how it’s done.
He did tear up a lot of other driver’s cars.
They sound like a bunch of jealous old bitties at the company BBQ.
The woman has talent, and she is unique. I don’t care for modern day nascar, yet I might just watch it now.
“This has worked so well to spike interest in NASCAR they are probably looking for gays and lesbians too! ;-)”
You mean all nascar drivers aren’t gay?
Gives new meaning to the term “bump drafting”
“I’ve hated NASCAR since the days when they penalized Mopars”
Bingo! Right there. I’m with ya’.
But, you also say...”she doesn’t need to win a race, because this is a marketing game with some cars grafted on”.
I say modern nascar is only about marketing, so what’s the difference?
I cannot stand Danica Patrick. A man with her driving ability would never be in her position. Anna Kournikova is smokin hot, and at least she never positioned herself as something shes not.

How about Danica Patrick? She gets all kinds of press and rarely, if ever, wins a race. Somewhat akin to that little hottie female tennis player a few years back who never won a tournament.
I Haven't heard that before. I would have thought Mike lived in or around Charlotte, NC.
They sound like a bunch of jealous old bitties “
Speaking as an old bittie, I hope she wrecks on the first lap so we can get back to actual racing.
Well if some are they have been pretty good about keeping it under the hood.
What? Not liking someone for their performance and only there looks?
Sound ehem familiar.
Yes, Danica probably will never be a good NASCAR driver. But the sport isn’t all about “good drivers”. Its america at its finest.
If you want actual racing, why would you watch nascar?
Mike and Meeks were on Fox and Friends this morning from Daytona.
Bah, it’s just over the top hype. She can drive, no one ever doubted that, but so what? So can all the other drivers. The media is a joke in NASCAR just as any other time. I never could stand her before so I sure will not now.
She drives like any broad in a Walmart parking lot but she sure polishes up nice!
We should have fines for people who ignore such rules;-)
