It’s unbecoming for drivers who are aleady on TV for 3 hours every weekend to whine that they aren’t getting enough attention. Danica’s move into stock cars is a human-interest story, they might as well accept that. Quit whining and drive, Kurt and Scott.
She was on CSI: NY last week too.
Where is Daisy Duke when you need her?
I used to watch NASCAR every week, until about 3 years ago when it just got boring. I have not watched a race since then, until yesterday. After Danica wrecked I switched channels. These whiners can cry all they want, but I’ll bet the ratings for her races are going to go through the roof.
This has worked so well to spike interest in NASCAR they are probably looking for gays and lesbians too! ;-)
But it’s cool when Junior pimps product, right. I mean, when he’s out there putting his mug on TV or wearing real man jeans he’s not playing sex symbol is he?
I think the Danica Media Frenzy is ridiculous, but I also think the Junior Media Frenzy is ridiculous. Its like they forgot that there’s a race going on. Junior is not a good driver (compared to most Sprint Cup drivers), but if you only listen to the media, you’d think he was one championship away from beating his dad’s record. Danica-mania is here to stay—until NASCAR gets a black driver that they can pimp to the cameras.
1. if Danica Patrick looked like Danny Bonaduce in drag, interest in her would be nonexistent.
2. she doesn't need to win a race, because this is a marketing game with some cars grafted on
3. should she choose to drive in lingerie, she can be the next President of the United States... and she won't need to spend a dime for advertising.
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.
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.
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.
