Bob, you are spot on about Danica, I was a fan of Danica when she first came into Indy Car racing and was critical of Tony George when, after the first Indy 500 she was in, would promote his races by saying be there for Danica's "First Time". He was talking about a win but with a definite sexual spin on it. When Danica came to NADCAR she was seen more as a commodity rather than a racing talent. If the powers that be had wanted her to advance in Stock Car Racing she would have spent at least a year in ARCA a couple of years in XFinity and then came to cup racing. I really do not think that Danica would have ever been a competitive racer but with different direction in her growth she would have been much better than she turned out to be. I firmly believe there is a woman racing on a local level out there who could run in Cup one day, Macey Causey among other names comes to mind.
On this same type topic, while I have been a Woods Brothers fan for 50 years I have been riding high with them and Blaney and have enjoyed their renewed competitive nature. I am less than optimistic about how they will fare with Paul Mennard. I understand the realities of Today's NASCAR and how a team like the Wood Brothers could be interested in a self sponsored driver but in my eyes they are losing a race horse and gaining a cash cow.
