    After reading what goblue posted on Petty's thoughts of Danica, I do wonder what Richard Petty thought of Janet Guthrie back when he was racing.

    Janet Guthrie could actually race. The drivers in both NASCAR and CART respected her. She didn't qualify one year for the Indy 500. People thought it was because she was woman. Foyt put her in his car and send her out on an unofficial qualifying run. She put up a time which would put her on the 3rd row.

    All Loy Patrick Allen has proven is she can look pretty and bring in a sponsor. But behind the wheel, she's dog shit.

    Petty's right. Nobody else has the balls to say it.

    She actually wasn't bad in Indycar. She just sucks horribly in stock cars. It's all for the $$$ at this point.

    Petty's right about another thing: Racing is secondary in today's NA$CAR. Shame.

    I figured if anyone could drive those older cars and nab a few top 10s had to have some talent and you know it was probably in a very underfunded car.

    I see Stenhouse won RoTY last year. Didn't even know who won but figured if it had been #7 the news would of been outpouring on it.

    Ugghhh I want a stock car series again where you race with actual cars instead of cookie cutter cars on cookie cutter tracks or just give me a time machine and let me go back to being a kid in the late 80s and early 90s when I enjoyed watching Nascar.

    In a development that shocks no one, Keselowski has complained about it on twitter already. But I agree with him.

    She should go back to Indy. She is much better at road racing than ovals.

    Sprint Unlimited was a pretty exciting race. Hamlin made a nice three wide pass and literally put 10 carlengths on the field coming to the white and they couldn't catch him.

    That's shitty. I guess the scroll at the top of the screen didn't take up enough space. :laughing:

    closing speed seems to be pretty quick. The side draft seems to be exaggerated too. Interested to see both with a full field of cars.

    Dillon wins pole, no surprise. Fastest in winter and was top 3 in both practice sessions. Michael Annett for me is the surprise of the useless qualifying session, nearly cracked the top 10.
