There is a part of me that is sad that she's not going to be racing in NASCAR full time anymore.

I wish she could have found a way to win at least 1 race, I think that would of helped females even more in gaining racing opportunities in NASCAR.

But let's not kid ourselves, she was in quality equipment, and only ever got close once or twice to victory. I know how hard it is to win, I just wish she could have at least won once.


She said she's racing the Daytona 500, and Brickyard 400. That kinda surprised me. I would of thought that she may try and find an Indy car ride again. That's where she performed her best, and that style of driving and racecar seemed to suit her better. But what do I know??

Good luck to Danica whatever she may choose to do.

Oh was it the Indy 500??? Maybe I just wasn't paying good enough attention. Seeing her compete in the Indy 500 sounds better to me.

What do y'all think?? I'd love to see her in a full time Indy car ride for next season.

I suspect she wouldn't want a full time ride - too much time away from her beau.

But I agree, if anybody could get a ride together with funding it's her.

I am somewhat surprised that she is going to go "right" into Indy. I suspected she would run a race leading up (even if Daytona / Indy 500 is a much more spectacular send-off).
