Speedweeks at Daytona heats up tomorrow, with the Gatorade Duels tomorrow, the Truck race Friday night, the Danica Patrick Invitational...err, Nationwide race Saturday and the Daytona 500 Sunday. Danica "The Brand" Patrick goes from never having run a stock car race to the B league of NASCAR in just over a week. We'll see how that plays out.

Any NASCAR fans still around on A.net? And would anybody be interested in doing another Yahoo Fantasy Auto Racing game as has been done in the past?

Juan Pablo Montoya

Unquestionably the most successful open wheel driver in NASCAR today, next to Tony Stewart of course. Certainly JPM is the most successful out of the ones who made the switch to NASCAR recently. Made the Chase last year, Rookie of the Year and won at Sonoma in 2007. Not bad for an Indy 500, CART, and Monaco GP Champion. (He should have won the Brickyard 400 last year.. he gave the race away while dominating due to a speeding violation.

Psyched up for this season - Should be a blast once they eliminate the Rear wings. Can't wait to see how the cars handle after the return to Rear Spoilers.

It's a given Chad Kanus and the #48 team will adapt quickly to the change, the real question is how fast the other teams can adapt!

Still have not purchased my tickets to the Vegas race this year. I am on the fence about going. Might try PIR and California Speedway though later on in the year.

I do have my tickets for the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona however. Can't wait to see Schumi race in F1 again.. but I will save that for a different thread

I know that the guy is a better driver than 99% of plebian Americans out there, but since it is the USA they like to penalize you for excessive speeds.

Take away the restrictor plates damnit.

Sounds like you either have a crush on her or you hate the fact she is a moving up so fast.

Eitherway Danica, is driving for the premier Nationwide Series Team and has owners that have a combined 17 Championships.

I'll route for anyone driving for JR Motorsports or Hendrick Motorsports.

I'm an HMS fan. I'm a diehard Jeff Gordon fan who's also loving the resurgence of Mark Martin and pulls for Dale Jr.

I'm just not sold on Danica. When I think of how arrogant she's been over the years & how the God complex set in with her despite not having done all that much in the IRL, I cringe a little bit. The respect goes down when I think about her explicitly saying she was coming to NASCAR to expand "Danica, the brand" (hence the nickname I've given her) when describing her move. If she runs well again on Saturday, this time against stiffer competition than last Saturday, I'll eat crow.

One thing that has disappointed me this Speedweeks has been the lack of coverage Nelson Piquet Jr. has been getting. This is guy is going to tear up more equiptment than John Wes Townley this year. I guarantee this man will cause a large wreck in the truck race.

I think the thing that has upset me more than anything else this week though, at least so far has been the coverage of Danica. Allie Owens was running in 3rd for the most part for 3/4th of the ARCA race and she barely got a mention. Danica runs conservatively and mid pack for the whole race and you'ld think shes a prophet.

ENOUGH WITH DANICA. She barely was competitive in the IRL, what is going to make any difference here. She is the new David Gilliland of NASCAR.

Let me be the first to say congrats Danica on your 26th place finish in the Danica 300.

As much as I am a huge fan of motorsports, going to the 24 Hours of Le Mans every year, watching every single F1 race, most of the LMS races and ALMS races, following WRC, IRC, GT races, FIA-GT, GP2 and sometimes IRL, I'm still having difficulties to find any interest in NASCAR. I probably did not grow up in the spirit of watching races on ovals.

Alli Owens wasn't making her stock car debut - she's been running ARCA for the past two years. She finished 24th and 22nd in points those two years BTW. I follow ARCA fairly regularly (have a friend who competes when money allows) and I've hardly heard of her.

Every time I put on the race, Danica was running in the top ten, at least until she got spun. And then she came back up through the field to finish 6th. Not bad for her first time in a stock car.

Quoting N6238P (Reply 6):

Last season, she was 5th in points, meaning she finished ahead of everyone who didn't drive for Penske or Ganassi. Each year in the series, she has finished higher than the year before, in the top 10 in points every year except her rookie season (12th).

I get it - you don't like her, and don't want to hear about her. Guess what, lots of people do - ratings for the ARCA race were up 59% compared to last year, and peak viewership was up 89% over last year's peak. It was the highest ratings ever for an ARCA race, and the second highest rating ever for any program on Speed.

And one more thing - I don't really care for Dale Earnhardt, Jr (and was never a fan of his father) and I get tired when you get wall to wall coverage of him on the race broadcasts too (Fox, I'm looking at you!) even when he's running mid-pack (or worse) every week.

During the prerace for the duals today, Tony Stewart made a comment about how he's surprised they're talking to someone that isn't Danica. After that I think it was Jeff Hammond that said it seems that they're bias to Danica but its all about ratings and trying to cater to new fans that are bringing in higher ratings. What the hell is that? I'm sorry that NASCAR played with the rules and cars so much that it drove away the people who've been watching for 20-30 years. But instead of trying to get those fans back they're just going to find new ones?

What direction is this sport trying to go. I think its a travesty the coverage Danica has recieved. She hasn't done anything in NASCAR. In the IRL she drove like an idiot and threw temper tantrums when things didn't go her way. She was like Kyle Busch except for the winning part. She won the last race on some BS fuel strategy the LAST RACE before the "merger happened." In my point of view shes been a disappointment in the IRL. She was suppose to win races and she barely could do that. She finished 5th in points in a series where only 16 drivers even ran all 17 races.

She's a marketing tool not a driver. Patty Moise, Shawna Robinson, Sarah Fischer never got the chance at top equiptment in their journey to the top. She isn't doing anything new. She posed for a magazine and suddenly shes Jesus.

Shes an average driver with average stats. Juan Montoya when he came over won the Indy 500 and Monaco GP and a CART championship and he didn't have the Danica watch when he started driving stock cars. Its sick and pitiful to think that NASCAR needs to resort to this sort of publicity to gain viewers.

I only call her that because she's getting a ride without much experience and will probably have the same results. One ARCA race and you're ready to drive Nationwide at Daytona? Give me a break I don't care if you're Sebastien Loeb, you shouldn't be in that car.

Gilliland had a freak of a car in one Busch race and suddenly he's suppose to be ready for Cup? Scott Speed is the same story except he took at least a little bit of time to ween himself into stock cars.

I'll be supportive of Danica if she can produce results. 6th in ARCA is great but JWT finished 3rd in that race too and he's an awful driver. JR Motorsports and Hendrick power can only take you so far. She had Andretti Green power for a while in the IRL and that only got her one win.

BTW: Open Wheel is more difficult... 1 bump at Indy and your toast. You can bump and bang all day in NASCAR.

How many tracks does the IRL race at where you can go flat out the entire way around the track. This is going to sound like CART vs. IRL talk here but honestly the IRL is a joke of a series. The cars are underpowered and the races are boring. I don't think its harder to drive the Dallara than a Stock Car. If she went from driving Formula 2 to stock cars I might say yea it's harder to drive. Just because you can't touch wheels doesn't mean it takes any less talent to drive a stock car than open wheeler. The IRL has made American Open Wheel racing the laughing stock of the motorsport world. Why can't we send drivers overseas to race in Formula 1?

Danica did an amazing job when she drove in the Toyota Atlantic Series but her problem was that she was being groomed by Rahal-Letterman racing to eventually come to the IRL. I think her deciding to go try the IRL as opposed to racing in Champ Car is what got me to not believe she was as good as she is claimed to be. Katherine Legge was and probably still is just as good as Danica but she went to Champ Car. She had terrible equiptment and just wasn't anything spectacular behind the wheel. Champ Car got adsorbed and now shes over in Europe driving touring cars. If Danica drove in the GrandAm series or ALMS full time, I would have more respect for her.

If Danica made the same choices as Legge she would be in the same boat. Danica is a smart business person but just an average driver. She has talent at driving but geeze she does not deserve the attention she gets.

I couldn't believe how great the Gatorade Duels were today. They were filled with plenty of great racing. The aero package seems to be working out. There were great battles for the transfer spot. Yes there was the occasional bias spotlight on Michael Waltrip but that's expected of any Fox/Speed Channel broadcast. The ARCA race was almost unwatchable they way Danica was sensationalized. If Danica wants to drive in the Nationwide Series, great, let her. Just don't ruin it for me. This is just like after 2001 when Junior nation got their microphone turned up everytime Little E took the lead in any race. Its a major problem in NASCAR and it annoys me to no end. Danica is just another marketing piece thats going to drive more and more traditional fans away from the sport. If they just let her race and earn her attention, not just give it to her.

All the main events today were washed out so far. I hope the truck race goes, its usually really good for an amazing finish. Then again if it gets rained delayed I don't have the conflict with the opening ceremony for the Winter Games.

Nationwide qualifying got rained out so NASCAR to their previous points and winners and other variables system to chose the starting grid. The back of the grid was mostly picked by who drew first for their qualifying run. Something really interesting happened too. Paul Menard did not make the race with this qualifying system and it just so happened that the 5 cars that were head of him in the qualifying draw "withdrew" their entries. The last car to make the race off of qualifying draw, Jeff Fuller withdrew first putting the #52 of Donnie Neuenberger in the show. He then withdrew putting the #96 of Dennis Setzer in the final spot who then withdrew to put Mark Green in who went on to withdraw and put Parker Kligerman in the race. I understand most of these guys are start and parkers but I figured Kligerman would be trying to actually race. He withdrew and now Paul Menard is in the race. This stuff happens all the time, I understand that, but John Menard had to have shelled out over a million dollars to get his kid in the show.

I can't wait to see Parker tear it up in the Nationwide series later this year. I am happy though that at least one less Start and Park car will be out of the race.

Between the ARCA race (several women in the field, Alli Owens ran well most of the night) and the race today (Chrissy Wallace is also in the field), the more I think about it, the more I realize that The Brand's "groundbreaking" run today is less about gender and more about hype, marketing, a TV darling that half the fans can't stand, and "Go Daddy....Go, Go Daddy..."

If she wants to be "one of the guys", then treat her like one of the guys. ESPN, after today, shut up about her & don't give the AW any more spotlight than any of the "guys" get on a regular basis.

Ahhh, hell; NASCAR is just trying to bring back some of the lost enhusiasm to their venue (lost because of the France family, et al pretending to be gods when it comes to the series and dictating ill-conceived notions of what the sport should be), so they are capitalizing on another female driver to boost popularity amongst interested masses. What's wrong with that? It's business.

BTW, I like Danica and think she may become accomplished if she stays with NASCAR as opposed to, say, Janet Guthrie. I think that Janet (I mean to say I think she was/is a "she") was a real interloper/carpethbagger and the sport rightfully dissed her after a while, and that was probably appropos, IMHO. Certainly not the calibre of Donna Mae Mimms when racing with Don Yenko (although that was road racing, not NASCAR). I think Danica Patrick is pretty much for real. I'm not going to bet my retirement checks, but I'm ready to give her a little more slack and think she'll eventually probably do well. She's already done better than any of the armchair racing clowns here on A.Net (myself included).

I hope NASCAR gets their shit together; the recent rules changes are probably a baby-step in a better direction, but I remain doubtful. Regards...jack
