The title alone is open to all sorts of comments...
Id give her pole position.
According to the fellas on Fox she’s the first female to sit on the pole.
The Pole is a good spot for her.
Good for Her
I love me some Danica. But I’d prefer Ana Ivanovic... I think they may have been separated at birth.
Are they limiting the cars to under 200 mph now?
I remember pole position runs around the 204-206 marks in the past.
I don’t keep up with it very well...but it seems that they are constantly coming up with new rules to slow down the cars. It makes it a bit safer, I suppose.
I believe Daytona is a restrictor plate track. sd
The Daytona 500 is one of the restrictor plate races.
C’mon folks ,you can do better.
Poll at ESPN says she won’t finish in the Top 20...LOL!
No doubt the first on the pole. Were guy’s throwing dollar bills as she crossed the checkered?
I find the lack of pictures disturbing.
Guess she isn’t lesbian, because you would think the NOW gang would be so happy for her, to accomplish such a great thing.
I agree, We are 17 posts into this thread and still no pictures?!?!
Nascar is way over regulated these days. Glorified spec racing with a ton of stupid rules. It’s very close to WWE.
