    Well, so far anyway, with about 2/3 of the field qualified......she set a good time too, but the local boys - Yimmy, Jeffy and Little E haven't gone out yet.....

    Wow! Congrats, Danica!

    1st female pole winner ever in the Piston Cup Series, and only her 11th start!

    Danica can drive open wheeler's & now she proves she can drive taxi's! I wish her well in the demo derby next week. :Thumbsup: Hope this shuts up some of her critics.

    I will have to be the Professor Fate here and say lap 15 turn 3; Ms. Patrick gets turned around. Hopefully Tony S has taught her well for this year. 196 MPH we will see if this holds the local boys.

    Congrats Danica! I like the looks of the new Gen 6 car with it's flared fenders and more stock front end appearance.

    So this will be the only time when it rains at Daytona it will be a good thing for Danica.

    Tossing singles at the pole. :devil::lol:


    I was also happy she set the top time yesterday. :Thumbsup:

    I find those sorts of comments fascinating.....

    First of all, she pretty much has no "T", and at 100lbs not much "A" either...:biggrin5:

    But so what? You haven't seen E Junior sticking his butt in your face in those Wrangler jeans commercials, or women hanging all over him in those cologne commercials?

    But what does any of that have to do with driving a race car fast and well? She got where she is by hard work, determination, practice, skill and talent first, that she uses her sex appeal is what......a surprise?

    Cause the best T&A in the world is not what's gonna get you across the finish line in any competetive race. Ask Milka Duno..... :D

    Nope, I admire her for what she's done and I don't care if she poses for Playboy, long as she keeps driving like she did the other day.

    You go, girl!

    Thanks Dave. If no one did a Danica on a pole with singles flying reference I was going to be disappointed. Yes I am a rotten pig. :arf:

    I respect your fondness of NASCAR . . . I just don't hold that fondness up on the same pedestal . . . I'm a F1 Road Rally high end EURO motor sport gal . . Varoom :biggrin5:

    debscooper, I'm an F1 fan as well.

    I'm also a Daytona prototypes fan.

    And Aussie supercar fan (I'm going to the race at COTA in May)

    A Piston Cup fan (especially the road course races)

    A DTM and BTTC fan

    An Indy cars fan

    A WRRC fan

    I've raced everything from SCCA to pony stocks.....I like 'em all!

    I like most forms of motorsports, especially since I've done most of them and I know what kind of skill, training and sacrifice it takes to be good in any of them.

    I know that motorsport is not what it used to be, there's not nearly as much emphasis on the "sport" part and way too much on the financial aspects, but you get what you get.

    But none of that takes away from Danica and what she's done. She's not the be all/end all, but she's pretty damn good at what she does, and no swimsuit edition of SI is going to take that away from her.

    At least if she leaves her left blinker on the whole time, people will understand.
