Danica Patrick’s day ended in disappointment after she blew a right-front tire during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Subway 500 and wrecked on the frontstretch at Phoenix International Raceway.

The accident on Lap 185 was further compounded when David Ragan slammed into her No. 10 GoDaddy.com Chevy SS.

Wouldn’t have happened if she were home baking cookies and scrubbing the floor.

Because male drivers have never crashed.

She’s a talented driver and I expect to see he win before the year is out. She seems to run into bad luck, like blowing a tire or getting caught in the after scrum of a wreck that others avoided. I think she has the respect of the other drivers and isn’t being pushed around as much as she was when she first started making the transition from Indy cars.

Newman crashed earlier (twice) for the same reason, a blown right front tire. I expect this has everything to do with the setup on both those SHR cars.

Agreed. Her track demeanor is high drama and uncalled for. I’ll never forget that one year she was in the Indy 500, you would have thought she was the only one in the race. That plus the ‘Go Daddy’ commercials and, well.. Blech!

You're using facts and logic here. Is that still allowed on FR?

I’m not so much on Danica or Dale Jr., but that’s just me. How often do they even mention past women who raced in Winston Cup and Busch series? Yeah, I know none of them probably had the $$ like Danica does.

I recall Patty Moise for example, who was married to a fellow driver and I think fielded her own team for a while.

This is a totally different time. It is media and commercial driven. How often do you hear the names of famous former male drivers like Junior Johnson, Fred Lorenzen, Cale Yarborough, Ned Jarrett, the Unsers or Allisons mentioned anymore?

I’m frequently reading stories about her crashing. You NASCAR fans, is her crash history more than other drivers?

Let’s put it this way:

The 2013 Daytona 500 ratings weren’t up 24 percent because folks tuned in to see Matt Kenseth’s new Toyota.

Exactly, are you a chessecake model or are you a real driver which is a highly tuned athlete IMHO and without getting into it I am around Gold Medal Athletes quite often, and these drivers have the same "Right Stuff"....

That isn't normal swimwear for males, is it? It is for females, unless you're a Rosie O'Donnell, Manchelle or Janet Reno look alike..

She doesn’t crash more than other drivers but she’s nothing special. She’s just kinda average.

Don’t think she had a lot of crashes in 2012. Her avg finish in the Sprint series was 28th and in the Nationwide series it was 18th. Mid pack and back racer, but with more experience she may improve on that over a couple of years.

Obviously Nas has long since transitioned from a bunch of good old boys banging fenders to a huge money making operation.

The Fox contract for example is > $300m per year. Danica brings viewers (at least for now) so she's gonna be the "fair haired girl".

Don't get me wrong, golf requires a tremendous amount of skill, but certainly not the strength, concentration and reflexes needed to drive race cars side by side at speeds over 200mph. Best of luck to your SIL.
