I am not looking for bad or good. Just whatever it is the her ex-CrewChiefs think of her. (whatever that is)
BTW are they called Crew chiefs in Indy cars? I never really paid attention if they are or not.
I am not interested in hearing from the Nascar people she has worked with, because she is still working with all of them. In Nascar you wont hear a bunch of bad talk of their driver while they still work together. Example, Addington didnt bash Kurt Busch. Actually, I still dont think he has.
So if I get what your saying in short is her ex Crew Chiefs do bash her? I just figured the guy posting was making it up. I dont know even how many she has had, but does any of them talk good about her Indy career?
As far as most popular driver goes. That cant be surprising. She is the most looked up racer in the world!

Other than that... well let's just say I think the man is mentally challenged and perhaps "got in and stays in" NASCAR is from his family roots. I don't know that for a fact - but it's my best guess as to the mystery of his reappearance each year, in one series or another.
Last November in N/W - T.E. Jr. got fined - same story as chad & the 48 - for Danica's car, only he got fined & put on probation.
I could go on... but my point is... should we REALLY ask T.Eury Jr ? ? Seriously? If you think yes... then you really are new to the sport. LOL
Not trying to spar with you, Racer... but this is how we exchange idea's and opinions. I think you've been doing a much better job, at laying off the insults and proceeding with your opinion lately. Remember this board is read by 100's of people ... and one never knows exactly how many people read and agree with you... but just never post. Don't stop posting ... just pls be respectful is all, a lot of us ask.
As for the post of haters out there... sigh... I'm afraid there always will be. "She shouldn't be in a mans sport /// she's just trying to get attn /// she's just in it for the money" and so on. As long as some nerd in his mom's basement has a keyboard and internet access... there will always be critics. Celebrities have lots of different ways of handling them - from ignoring them to fighting with them... and I'd have to say that Danica has always put on a good face for the media, in regards to her "haters" out there.
Oh and Schmoop? Indy Car Crew Chiefs are called Crew Chiefs.

She also holds the record of 50 races without a DNF so her strength is saving the cars, course in Nascar not so much. Ive checked and not alot of male drivers have had that success on average with top 10's every yr etc so not as bad as some make it sound and for sure better then any female driver in history, and why she is the most successfull female driver in history of Indycar. There are several female drivers in Indycar today and over the past yrs but none could even make top 15 in points or even come close to comparing with Danicas stats.
