After only 7 top tens in six years (0 wins), the money finally ran out for Danika's 'Smoke and mirrors' show. Please, please IndyCar, stay away!

Not any intended. I believe in racers getting rides based on merit, not sponsorship dollars and glitz. I state nothing but the facts plus my fervent wish that my favorite series doesn't repeat mistakes of the past.

The more interesting thing about NASCAR news from yesterday is the ugly split between Petty and Smithfield. They're getting savage with each other. I bet Aric Almirola to the #10 car.

"She wants to continue to drive in cup.... But only if it's a competitive ride"

Well she's had a "competitive ride" for the last 6 seasons. And what has she done with it? From the looks of things, she's not going to be missed. Just read the comments section.

You beat me to it Indydriver. But it's all so worthy of celebration, it deserves 2 threads!.... And 2 articles.

Aric Almirola who and [censored] is that? All you Danika haters are showing your colors because you don't insist that all the drivers that have finished below her be dismissed from NASCAR as a bunch of people who lack talent in racing. By the way I believe that number 88 finished behind her in a couple times maybe this year.

I wouldn't worry. They're not going to want her either. She has become about as popular as the stomach flu.

The only thing that, "smacks of sexism", is the FACT she wasted 6 years in a good car, and accomplished nothing. 6 years that someone who actually possessed any talent, could have done something with. T&A won't get you across the finish line any faster. If she's proven anything, she's proven that. Now she can accomplish what's more in line with her talent level. Selling her wine, (Whine), and petting her dogs.

Richard Petty was right! He caught a lot of flack for saying after her rookie year that the only way she could win a race was if she were driving the only car on the track. grin

It has been a long time since rides were awarded based solely on merit/driving talent, in almost every form of racing.

You can tell a lot about a person, by what their fellow workers have to say about them. Here are what some of them had to say about Danica.

You mean the sexism of showing favoritism to a less qualified person simply because of their gender?
Which in this case was female?

If so, then I agree.

Do you not follow the sport? Aric Almirola? The last person to win in the 43 car? And it's Danica, and I'm not a Danica hater, I've always hoped that she would do well, and honestly she hasn't been worthy of a top tier car like she has been in for 6 seasons. I wish her the best of luck. She's not had a terrible season, had a stretch of top 15 finishes, and all. She's actually been running decently, and got caught up in some incidents that were not her fault. She's not bringing sponsorship dollars anymore, so she is being replaced. It's a business.
