I dont know(or care) how many cars finished the 500.
But I know more than 1 did.
I dont need to see the winner's wife smile, cry, shriek, hug, clap, praise, and run 2 seconds after the winner crosses the finish line.
Or like last year...Ashley Judd's wet t-shirt contest, while a true ratings booster, and awesome photo op, was misplaced...what were they expecting this year, Dixon's wife to remove her blouse, drop her trousers and reveal herself in a thong and halter for the cameras? NO
I sat through 3.5 hours of watching more than 1 car run the race... I'd like to see the OTHER cars finish the race. Get the camera off the wife...get the camera back on the track...it's the INDY 500, not the "Indy 500 winner, and their spouse" show...
spouses need to sit in a spouse box. Not the pit box. The racers dont get out and get kisses at each pit stop, so why are spouses AT the pit stall?
why is there a camera on every leading driver's spouse?
even Danica's husband has some air time...
they need to put spouses in a spouse tank...let them all sit and watch the race together...then fight it out when one racer wrecks another racer's spouse.
but yea...seriously...I saw 1 car cross the path of bricks.
as for Danica...well, success breeds contempt. People invested millions of dollars in her driving, so I'd say she is all she thinks she is, and then some.
she's in a league way beyond any we could ever fathom.
try living life her way, and see how often you smile.
Oh, and i agree with what Eddie Cheever said...had that been any male racer walking towards Penske's pits, no one would say jack...
she's got it alot rougher than the boys do...and much of that is the media's fault. all she wants to do is race...and considering who she drives for, and what they have invested in her, I'd say she can race...and race well.
But...this isnt the Danica Debate...lover her, hate her, or be indifferent...it's all a matter of perspective. she's good for the sport, and the industry, and that is a good thing.
