Danica is qualified 10th. Which means her car is faster than 75% of the field. Let's see where she finishes???

Dude, we all know you have a disdain for Danica from your previous odd lust you have posting about her.
It's a stupid sport, who cares.

Where you start isn't that important at Daytona compared to other tracks

NASCAR has reduced their version of racing to advertising bill boards painted on kit cars with drivers in theme matching pajamas including large shiny hats with sunglasses. The drivers put their gas pedals to the floor and the team that makes the fewest mistakes wins the race but does not necessarily win the more important popularity contest which determines whether there will be a paycheck each week. At least there are usually a lot of different race winners and the crashes can be viewed as part of the show because the drivers safety is now priority number one and the drivers most often wave to the crowd and walk away. On top of all that NASCAR's traveling show is a community that blends well with fans and sponsors.

I dislike one driver... You hate the whole sport, and I'm the one who's whining too much. LOL

If you want to watch really good racing try watching NHRA drag racing
If you think you can, or if you think you can't, You are probably right.

That's what she said at Pocono when she confronted some people that were booing her for not signing an autograph. She was all huffy puffy. Videos out there about it.

Now you know full, good, and well that qualifying is an indicator of nothing of any major significance. Especially at the plate tracks as a general rule. What percentage of the time does the pole winner actually win the race?? Very, very little of the time. Only tracks where qualifying as a small amount if meaning is Martinsville, Loudon, and the road courses. And even at those tracks it is not the end all and be all. The ten or twenty lap averages is where it really matters at those tracks. Aka how well a car runs in the long run. If and this is HUGE if.... She actually wins the race at Daytona it likely will not carry much weight. The truth is at the plate tracks strange things happen and you can get a winner there that really is not competitive at any of the other tracks. Aka like David Gilliland and David Ragan teaming up together at Talladega for a win... Yes, a majority of the time a big name wins at Daytona or Talladega. But there are times where a driver wins at either of those tracks and is not really competitive anywhere else. So, this being the case.... If somehow she wins there.... It will not carry anywhere near as much weight as if she wins at Pocono, Kentucky, or Michigan. And that she won at one of those tracks where she ran towards the front all day and that the race ran it's full distance. No rain shortened event. Then Danica winning would be viewed as a real legitimate win/feat.
