Nobody pays big money for no-talent driver sponsorship. Racing now is more 'business' than ever in history, and sponsors want their logos to be seen out front, where the cameras are following the leaders, and in the winners circle. Back in the pack doesn't rate. They put lotsa bucks in to back potential winners. Danica is a talented and skilled driver, maybe not the best every day (and NOBODY is), but she's still got what it takes. It helps that she's also a very attactive woman, and that coupled with her ability got her sponsorship. But if she was slow and a hazard, she'd already be gone.
Why not just give the woman the credit she deserves ? Can anyone here do better ??
Thank you. She deserves the credit, absolutely. Calls of "no-talent" are the very worst kind of sour grapes.
She won the pole, that's a major accomplishment for anyone. I'm happy for her, she won the pole fair and square by being faster than everyone else. Ignoring the media aspect of her coverage, why anyone would get bent out of shape over attention for winning the pole is beyond me. it's legitimately major news.
Add me to the chorus of "You go girl."
