Let's see hear ok to comment on Danica,your right see is hot and If that won races she would already have won a couple of races. I think her problem on why she can't run better If you listen to her interviews,she's allways concerned about tearing up her car,will we ran ok but the best thing is we still have the car in one pieceshe will never win If she's always worried about tearing up a car. Yes I know that some drivers run in the back and stay out of trouble and will win from time to time. Now on the wreck you had to know that was going to happend, I mean the media ran that into the ground, It happend so nuff said only that hope Denny is going to be Ok. And in my opinion Joey could been a little more concernd that Denny was ok. And the last thing Jr. Is running better because of one thing he's in shape he has lost about 25 lbs and that has made a diffrence.Last year when he got out of the car and they did a interview with him he was out of breath not yesterday,makes a diffrence look at Mark Martin. Ok I'm done

danica only has 1/8th the seat time of the other rookie this year in these type cars.. so.. she is also learning you can't win if you DNF.
once she gets the car down and what to tell the crew.. she'll be fine..
I think the winston(allstar race) where they can take chances she'll see where the limits of the car is.. she knows smokes working on building a better group of teams and not distroying the cars helps big time..
she's smart enough to know if she has a mid pack car to just make it to the end.. to many think she should automaticly be winning.. Steve kinser of the world of outlaws had the same b/s pushed on him.. everyone thinks it so easy.. it's not..

I do agree with you I guess she runs good at the big tracks just because that's diffrent than other tracks. Look at Michael Waltrip he only had a chance at the big tracks,but this day and time If you run good only at the big tracks then you have a chance four times a year and If you win two out four that's not that bad.

Driver Denny Hamlin suffered a lower back fracture in a brutal crash on the final lap of Sundayís race at Auto Club Speedway and might miss one or more races as he recovers.

Joe Gibbs Racing said Monday that Hamlin suffered a compression fracture of the L1 vertebrae at the lowest part of the back.

According to a news release from the team, Hamlin is expected to be released from a Fontana area hospital today to return to his home in North Carolina. In Charlotte, Hamlin is scheduled to be examined by surgeon Dr. Jerry Petty, who has treated many NASCAR drivers.

Compression fractures typically take weeks to heal and often involve surgery.

The Sprint Cup Series is idle this weekend because of the Easter holiday and will resume the following weekend at Martinsville Speedway in Virginia.

Hamlin was hurt after he and rival Joey Logano crashed while racing for the win on the final lap of Sundayís Auto Club 400. Logano bounced off the outside wall and continued to the finish, but Hamlinís car was turned to the left by the impact, and he hit the inside wall head-on. The impact lifted the car into the air.

A decision about Hamlinís immediate future in the JGR No. 11 Toyota isnít expected until at least later this week. Five races into the season, he is 10th in Sprint Cup points.

I caught some of the IndyCar race at St. Pete. Rookie James Hinchcliffe, driving Danika's old GoDaddy ride, won in his first race.

I seem to recall her only IndyCar win was in a fuel mileage race (she led the last couple laps after the leader ran out), also w/some of the drivers that would have been in the race being ineligible because they were Champ car guys. Any win is a good thing, but hers was a bit hollow IMHO.

In any event, at this stage a good driver she is not. In my opinion.

i just wish someone would go up and take stewarts front teeth out on live tv when he acts like that. i remember when jimmy spencer took kurt busch down a notch. and the 88 is leading the points again in the beginning of the season. too bad nascar will take it away at 12 races to go causing him to not win a championship again.

All Tony needs is a gentle tap on the back of the skull with a 12 lb sledge to get his attention and then he might listen to reason.

He has done this type of crap before and at one point - when he was in the Home Despot car, it took a visit with the sponsors to point out that "You are the public face of our company - and we do not pay for our public face to look like that! Once more and we will be sponsoring someone else!"

Then he began to act bit more mature. As of now, he is reminding me a bit of a certain diver in a certain M&Ms car......

I believe it was Tony that was blocking and caused a 30 car pile up at Tally last year. So he can't call out others for doing it when he does, oh I forgot he's Tony Stewart my bad.

Bad Behavior

Throughout the history of Nascar many have been called in for aggressive driving. But my thoughts led to drivers that have been called in for bad/childish behavior.

At the top of my list is Kurt Busch, I stood and cheered when Jimmy Spencer punched him in the nose some years back and I didn't like Jimmy. He gained my respect with that one punch. When Kurt said, on camera, "would someone get this MF'er out of my face" to Dr. Jerry Punch, I was stunned. If I was Dr. Jerry I would have wanted to shove my foot up his rear.

Kyle Busch and his little kiddie temper tantrums, walking off the track and such. Whiner. He has matured some, but still carries the stigma.

Tony Stewart is in alot of ways like Kyle. After his mandated anger management therapy, he too has matured some, but also still carries the stigma among some fans.

Jeff Gordon should be comfortable laying back on his credentials being a five time champion. Sometimes he handles post race in a dignified manner sometimes he whines and whines, did I say whines already?

Just watching qualifying - if she can't step it up, she may have a great future as a roadblock!

thats a silly post.. I remember a mighty good driver that sucked at qualify, in the back 20th-38th .. but won 7 champs, but did win a pole at the glen when they took him out of his car a week before.. with broken bones no less..
but , some forget he was not a winner right off the bat either, and killed many a car,, so did jeff gordon.. among others..

There is also a very good chance that she and her crew chief are not communicating well - but between car set up, and car handling and her driving, she has seemed to go backwards in every race so far, often being the tail ed of lead lap or being one or more laps down (NOT counting instances were she has been punted out of contention and lost laps while her crew put it back together to get her back on track)

Maybe I was just expecting too much too soon (and if you look back on this thread, I have been a HUGE supporter of hers and her value to the sport) but maybe I am just expecting too much.

After all the hype, after all the talking her up - she regularly finishes SO far back in the pack and qualifies poorly as well.

Maybe if her crew could give her a good car (if she could explain what she wants to someone who could understand and could do it.....)

On the other hand, Dick Trickle is often held to be one of the best ever yet he never once won a cup-level race.....

I wear a Jeff Gordon jacket, but for the past number of years, I have been wondering what's happened to him - basically since Evernham left the "Rainbow Warriors", he has not lived up to expectations

She seems to be having issues with expectations and reality as well........

yup adding teams hurts all teams under that owner for a season or 2..
RCR didn't do much as they added cars..

the gen 6 cars are much better, but teams don't have the sponsers to change over a whole fleet of cars, even tho. his cars are from hendrick. he still has to pay for them.. and hendrick have'n to build new fleets for their 4 teams was a tall order nevermind tonys teams..

sadly, fans put danica at the top, just like they did to JR. both where expected to win right off the bat..

roush cars should always do well. edwards team have gone full seasons in a funk..
honestly, she should have done another full season in nationwide.. but nascar wants come before everything else..
as tony wasn't ready for 3 teams, and she needed more time to learn to talk with the crew chief.. she can drive thats not an issue, but the crew and driver being on the same page is huge,, something even JR didn't have for years..
face it JR would have had multi champ by now if he drove for RCR but didn't because he wants to be his own man, not thought of as DALE SR son.. and the pressure that come with driving for RCR no matter what # on the door.. but RCR didn't play favorites, like hendrick does, and the 48 will always get the best of the best as it's in the best interest for Rick,Jeff&jimmie as they all win when the 48 does.. don't believe me..
JR cars have gotten 100% better since he straped into a RCR car with a JR motorsports engine (that buy the way was a steward engine) and won..
now he's top 10 almost every race,at the top most of the race, and able to stay there, and when the pit crew screws up. be able to drive the wheels off the car to get back to where he was..
on top of all that, not everyone can loose their dad and keep doing the same thing, when every day all you see is your dad and his car EVERYWHERE.. between the pressure to be as good as his dad (jr has more wins than his dad at the same age) and being reminded of his dads death every dam day, I'd say he did dam well..
I really think JR is setting himself up to be a great owner.. just like his mentor RC.. and if not for nascar and the fans going age crap. would be out of the car when his contract is up.. best thing to happen to him was the end of the 11 season, his step mother telling him, he'll never be a champ.. now there is fire in those eye's, spite can do wonders..

Well the fans wasted their vote last night.

If JJ wins many more races, I might start to think he can drive, instead of his crew chief is cheating some how.
