WRONG on both counts.
First off-- Godaddy has said its Danica's decisions to choose what she wants to do and they will stay out of the racing side of things and rely on her judgment regarding those choices. Believe it-- IF she didnt want this--it wouldnt have happenned. Iam sure though that she trusts Tonys judgement in this to do the right thing for her so she is Ok with it, but I dont like it, course my opinion doesnt matter.
On the second matter of it wont hurt her image--yes it is taking a hit on most all sites and some media. "The first female in yrs to start the Daytona 500 is Danica and they bought her way in the race"--how does that sound? Its certainly not credible and this is crap as i said earlier. However, now i'll knock Tony and say he sold her out to a moreso S&P team, so he wouldnt have to be bothered as he is "old school" and should know most of all how important it is for a driver to earn their spot, rather then buy their way in? On Race Hub tonight and the interview with Balwin he commented it is his car now and she is racing with HIS team so Tony and Ryan can concentrate on themselves winning races & the championship etc. Nice going Tony you just lost some of my respect, for what it matters? Wait till when the car is crap and slow and she has 30 second pit stops and other issues, then who takes the blame? Oh well guess we'll see how it goes as miracles could happen and she could do OK, and its only for 10 races and if she does poorly SHR can kiss a 2013+ Cup contract with her goodbye.
On a good note, she has a great NNS crew and series to focus on as its now FT so thats something.

Yep. I believe that is what Brian France wants. The soap opera atmosphere.

Let me hear from those knowledgeble members who are far more familiar with what goes in N-Car than I. Thanks.
