Default Idiot Wrecks Patrick On Pit Road; Ends Her Day!

in the Indy 500.
wonder if he will need security to get out of the Brickyard?
Didn't look like she had much chance of winning, but a solid top 5 looked possible.

no offense, but Danica (sp) Patrick is a gimmick. she's won ONE semi-big race. UNO. she ain't no Tiger Woods. The only thing she has going for her: lots and lots of guys want to her, so she's always a publicity machine.

although i will give her SOME credit, as she's not turned RIGHT like Dale Earnhardt did he sure as shit didn't INTIMIDATE that wall.

I'm not some massive Danica fan or anything, but I don't think she is a gimmick by any means. I have read too many comments by her competitors to think that. If you didn't realize it, her respectability continues to rise among her fellow racers. Kanaan, Dixon, and others have said she is the real deal.
so not sure where you are getting that she is a "gimmick" from.
the "gimmick" is that "other" chick that Ashley Judd called out after last years's race.

i'd call that cross-promotion. it'd be smart to talk shit about her right now, as another driver, it'd be instant controversy and instant headlines, and would generate more ratings....and a bunch of pissed off groups, to say the least lol

I agree that there is some of that going on, but it's not all just trying to hype the series imo.
I mean we'll see going forward.
she will have plenty of chances to win more races.

She's good for racing. People who didn't give a crap about Indy before might have actually tuned in to watch. For me racing is right up there with boxing as sadsack sports.
Also these companies put multi-millions into cars and i doubt they're going to just let any old person drive them as a 'gimmick'.

n8,

I disagree that Danica Patrick is a 'publicity stunt'. Yes, she has only won 1 race... but that is A LOT more than we can say for Anna Pornikova (lol). She is GARBAGE on the tennis court, but because she looks good... she was famous.

Danica Patrick, on the other hand, has been to the podium 4 times (including the win), had 25 top 10 finishes, and finished the 2007 season in 7th place.

Remember, this isn't some 'candy-ass' race league either... this is Formula 1 racing... so even finishing in the top 10 is something to be said. These aren't like Nascars either... you don't just 'brush a wall' and keep going... not in a formula 1 car you don't...

Is she the best racer in history? No... but she is definitely good. Is she using her 'sexuality' to further her career? Yes... but show me one atractive female athlete who isn't.
