Danica is still figuring out this transition from open wheel to stock car which is a tough transition. And her being this A ljst celebrity magnifies it by a thousand. People need to just let her race and learn. In the nw side she hasn't done as well as I thought she should be. She even admitted to having to lower her expectations. But that is just how hard it is. And there are more than just eight talented drivers in nw. This is NASCAR. To be here you have to be talented.

But outside of that whenever someone criticizes Danica it doesnt mean the poster is hating on Danica. Most times it is being realistic, which we find a lot of Danica fans & Media arent realistic.
Honestly she isnt a good stock car driver right now. She might not ever be. Or maybe she does turn out to be decent. She has had her moments.
but just because we come on here & say something that isnt all rosey, doesnt mean we are hating or want her to fail.
I don't think that even Racer1 thinks Danica is doing great lol. I have been a fan of her since 2005. But I am probably her biggest critic. Honestly I think she should be doing better on the nw side, but on the cup side she has done what has been expected of her, and exceeded those expectations at Bristol.Schmoopy1000 wrote:I would like any woman to actually do good in stock car racing. Including Danica. I just wont act like they are doing well just because they are a woman. I call it like I see it. So just like you said she is still learning & transitioning & needs to lower her expectations. this is what you fans should acknowledge as well. You should be on here gloating about how much you think she learned more than coming on here saying how great she is doing.
Again the drivers in the nw series are fine. Now if you want to say there are only a few good rides and she is in one them maybe that flies. Though JRM hasn't set the world on fire this year.Schmoopy1000 wrote: I was looking at the points the other day since you guys like to hype on being in the top ten. Like MJ said there isnt to many quality teams out there. the top 5 are the only ones worth mentioning quite honestly After Allgaier (5th place) the rest arent that hot. So when you talk of her potential, think you should be able to brag once she reaches 6th place. BTW when I had looked at the points she was 11th. Here is a point of how irrelevant that is. Jo. Long was 19th & she hasnt finished all that well either & only runs a part time schedule.
I don't see where anyone bras about her. Sure people will say something if she does good. But who is bragging? And crazy expectations? This really confuses me. I don't think anyone expects her to be top five here. It seems to me that you are generalizing Danica fans.Schmoopy1000 wrote: I dont think you guys should brag until she is consistently running top tens, & that isnt setting the bar all that high. Until then sure be proud when she doesnt anything good & for learning, but you guys get all crazy with your own expectations, & that brings in the realists that counters.
Your not a fan so you have no reason to talk about Danica finishing 9th in a race. But glad to see you were cheering for her at the RCs, those were her only races this year that she was a true factor outside of the place races.Schmoopy1000 wrote: I do hope she does well, I just wont get all crazy until I see it.
#### I was rooting for her at the RC, & thinks it sucked she ran over the shoe. (of course me being a male driver would have avoided the shoe)
I am just kidding calm down Sheesh LOL \
Also was pleasantly surprised of her at Bristol, & thought it sucked she got wrecked. Now if we were all haters would any of us feel that way in these two cases?
Be mad at those fans and the media. And it seems to me that Wolf just wants to stir the pot (which he admits to).Schmoopy1000 wrote:Point being you get Wolfgang, me & others on here, not so much because of what she is doing or saying, but because of her fans & media (kinda like Dale Jr syndrome)
Again I don't see really see to many people hyping Danica on this site. Maybe racer1. Are you talking about other sites? I don't have control over that. All drivers have those kind of fans. Can't really do anything about it.Schmoopy1000 wrote:Just kinda wish the things you point out to the allegid haters, you would point out to the Danica fans. The allegid Haters already know she is still learning & isnt all that great right now. it is the Danica fans that create a greatness frenzy & you never see or hear of a Danica fan correcting other Danica fans. Of course I guess if that were to happen they wouldnt be considered Danica fans but haters.
Don't know how much pressure fans put on her, maybe the media. But she handles it pretty well.Schmoopy1000 wrote:Ever think if the Danica fans & media quit acting like she was gonna be the next big thing, it might take some pressure off her & she might learn a lil quicker?
