I guess. ESPN is reporting Danica's with Jr.'s NW team.
This is certainly the hot topic of the day on 128. Lot's of favorable and unfavorable opinions of her. She didn't pay her dues, blah, blah blah. Sure they are others with far more experience than her but sometimes it's not about that, Paul Menard comes to mind. Money talks. :yesshake:
As for paying dues, you're right money talks but unless your Dad is paying the bills (paul )
this is a performance sport. In a couple years if she isn't putting the numbers up she won't be here forever.
I'm just going to wait and see how she does and try to ignore the hundereds of articles and talk show discussions about it until Feb :bigthumbup:
I don't know. She's a cash cow, just like my driver #88. He hasn't been exactly been lighting up the track much over the past couple of seasons yet his hauler is still generating long lines. Can you imagine the amount of money she'll generate? I'd imagine that the lines at her souvenir hauler will be longer than the #88 and the Digger hauler combined. Yes, people love that little rat!
Thats true but she's more of an 'outsider' and while I think she'll be given a chance by a lot of fans I doubt they'll let poor performance slide for 2 or 3 seasons from an 'outsider'
Again, this is just my opinion. And who knows? maybe she'll do well.
Oh, just wait 'till all those GoDaddy girls get there!
I'm hearing all the HUGE amounts of money she wants per race.
