who cares. Besides shes got 100 less pounds of advantage on her side. Thats not fair. They say it equals a 1mph gain over the rest of the field every lap.

She could have won it if it hadn't been for a few problems. The engine kill in the pits, the tire rub about 2/3's of the way through the race, and the wreck that took out her front wing. All that and she STILL took 4th!

I was pullin' for her. I was surprised to see the host of Spike TV's PowerBlock running an Indy car and that other series she runs. I think once she gets a little more experience, she'll be a threat.

100 pounds? You need to meet some of these drivers someday. I could sneeze and wipe
out about 1/2 a dozen of them for the most part. They (like jockeys) tend to be small.
I raced open wheel cars weighing in at 235lbs. and was far and away the biggest driver
around the circuit. I would venture a guess (educated) and say most male drivers are in
the 140lb range.

I watched the race with a few of my buds, and we all determined that it would be hotter for her to drive one of us around in a ferrari street car than to actually get with her.

It was freggin amazing that she led so many laps. thumbsup to my spiketv host.

Way to go Danica!
Dang, so if it was a guy only weighing like 100 pounds would there be so much of a controversy? Why dont some of the fellas get on a workout plan and lose some weight and they could have a better advantage over some of the others as well. I seem to think alot of guys got a problem with chicks doing the same things guys do-and alot of times better as well.
Oh well, thats why you gotta have the who cares attitude and do ya thing!

thats nothing to cry about. if the other drivers feel like she has an advantage they should go on a diet and hit the gym, otherwise they need to quit their b*tching. Danica is hot and she can drive her a$$ off. i'd definitly PIIHB.

i like all the pics but this one is my favorite:

Women have naturally slighter and smaller frames. There is only so much "weight" that a male driver can lose. At any rate, the men in Indy aren't much bigger than she is to begin with.


At any rate, let her race. Quit *****ing about it and get her in more issues of Maxim, Stuff and FHM.

All I gotta say is: You go girl!!



These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.
