I have to admit that I am not a "stock car" fan. I have not been much of a Danica Patrick fan, either. I have always thought her to be average, or slightly above, on ovals and sub-par on road courses.
But, I was glued to the ARCA race from Daytona yesterday. I am most impressed. She was aggressive, held her line and took to the outside for passing. She made some smart drafting moves so she could hitch a ride.
Most impressive was her spin recovery from contact with Nelsinho Piquet. She took her hands off the wheel when needed and muscled it when required. That recovery was awesome.
I think that starting three abreast and running inches apart in open wheel let her join the bump 'em crowd in great shape.
I'll still take F1 and LMP1/LMP2 racing. But, I will be following some ARCA and Nationwide racing, for sure.

Doug

CART was usually (and F1 is) road courses. I think Nascar only has two.

I'm not sure if you saw that link I posted of a youtube blip with Terry Fator.  He has a 1 hour dvd of him in Vegas.  It is as good or better in some ways than Dunham.

Im a big Nascar fan.  Come on!!!! Danica is a gimmick--plain and simple.  She ought to put as much effort into improving her craft as a race car driver as she does into selling the image of her body.

The bottom line with any sport is does it sell tickets?  If so, it's a good business decision.

She's not just a hot chick, though; she does have talent and usually finishes at least middle of the pack or better.

She placed 7th at St. Pete's last weekend. I was impressed again because she has failed to do so on road and street courses in the past. We shall see as the season goes on.
I plan on seeing her run at Mid-Ohio the first weekend in August. I look forward to seeing open wheel on Sunday and the LMP1 ALMS cars on Saturday.
