these responses are just several more reasons that i firmly hope she whips the socks off the rest of them come race day. i just can't believe some of the irrational stuff people come up with.

Although she can drive a race car better than most/all of us she has a 1 in 43 chance of winning. Unlikely yes, does her weight give he advantage,no, experience and skill have lots to do with it. Each of which she doesn't have enough of yet in NASCAR...She will do fine as long as she stays out of trouble.

Stuff like this is exactly why I LOATH NASCAR. Bunch of whining crybaby poor sportsman. They go out there in what amounts to little more than a high speed demolition derby running litteraly INCHES from each other at upwards of 200 mph or better then get all butthurt when someone bumps them, intentional or not, then when someone gets more press or does better than them on a regular basis they have to start stuff like this. I have been involved in drag racing and have been an NHRA member for over 25 years and you rarely EVER encounter this sort of thing in that motorsport.

 

Besides that, the races last so long they get boring.

Wow !  Dude.

It would seem to me that her wieght and less muscle mass would hinder things in a tuff situation- like trying to get it together in a spin or slide . Turning the wheel fast one way to another in a slide has to be effected by strong fast arms and upper body muscle.  Mark Martin might not weigh much but look at his arms. They're 4 ft long !  

 

Danicas size may work to her advantage as there's less of her to get mashed . She doesn't take up much room in the cockpit.

 

There's a ton of interest in Nascar. It's a super successful sport. It's a true sport because you can get killed.  I love drag racing. But it's not quite as big as the Nascar.  Nascar is kind of like a chess game. Strategy and making moves. It's a long game.  In Drags you can have stuff go wrong but there's  more likelyhood of stuff going wrong over a 3 or 4 hour stretch of running full out in Nascar that is not there in Drags.  It's two different things. Both are great. If the Drags had 100, 000 people at every race you'd here all different sides to everything just like you do in NASCAR !!!

 

There are cry babies in every sport- I'm sure.

Actually pretty funny! I like her comment about her act "falling flat."  :D

 

A little self-deprecating humor is a good thing!

She did good.

 

Notice how short she is compared with the rest of the line? True she's an itty bitty person, but those showgirls are TALL. They have to be to wear the headpieces. I learned that from a, ahem, friend I dated before I met MrsG.

She's very "petite." Maybe 5 feet tall? 100 pounds? A small girl, for sure, but cute as a bug.  :D

Yes she is...I've seen her in person a couple of times.    And now that her major sponsor (based here in AZ) is a client of my company, maybe I'll get to meet her and say hi.. :)
