That record of Danicas is amazing consdering that its easy to get caught up in a wreck, but she has been known as a very safe and smart driver and this record she holds shows it, for what its worth. At Vegas with the crashfest she said she knew something bad was going to happen watching the other drivers race crazy so early and she went to the low side to be safer. She barely missed getting hit by the flying car beside and just ahead of her but she did escape it. While some critics say she drives too cautious and why she hasnt won more races, i guess its a toss up to race safe and try to get a good finish or race careless and not finish some races or worse--take your pick.
Now she is in Nascar with twice as many cars and therefore lots more chances to get caught-up in wrecks as she has been in quite a few anyway. Sometimes even the best drivers get caught in a crashfest, as it happens and often times just no way to avoid it.
Now that she is FT in NNS it will be interesting to see if she still drives "safe" or takes more chances as she has stated the "honey badger" thing, of "if you want something just take it". It may be tough for her though as long time instincs to drive safe may over-power her will to just be more aggressive and even a little careless--guess we'll soon see?
Getting close now for the season starting--C'mon Daytona--cant wait.
