Ok--while I been staying away from all this crap again --now seeing these nonsense uninformed comments about poor Johanna Long--heres some facts so wakeup and pay attention:
1--She was raised around stock cars, dirt tracks etc and has raced against most these young nascar bloodlines guys like Dillon and most others for yrs and beat them on occasion like the Snowball Derby that she WON a few yrs ago. She has been called the female version of the Dillons and others only without the rich family or big team connections.
2 She has RCR equip, it IS the same car and motor that the Dillons and Sadler use so cut the crap that she has bad equip. Whos winning most the races these days besides Cup guys, its Dillon in his RCR equip or Sadler--same equip--same os johanna drives.
3 The announcers said during the race Johannna has tested recently and IS working WITH RCR and the 3 car to get better at bigger tracks and it showed as she said over her radio that her car had NEVER been better and was great during the race meaning HER crew knows how to set up her car, unlike the 7 crew for sure.
4--Now the LOW funding aspect is that they dont have all the funds to have a FULL crew and some guys do double duty and some fly in for races and they dont have a big shop etc but that doesnt affect the race car although she has issues with pit stops because of her short handed 7 man crew at times. However, for those who dont care to pay attention, Danicas pit stops are well over 16 to over 20 seconds more often then 14 to 15 second stops which are rare for the 7 car.
So to sum up:
1-RCR which Johanna has is winning more races in NNS then Hendricks engines which Danica has as the car and engines dont matter if the cars setup isnt right-or the drivers is lacking the proper background and stock car experience in the cars--period.
2-Johanna is bragging about how great her car is during the race and when if ever has Danica said anything close to that other then Daytona maybe?
3-Johanna has the stock car, Dirt track and short track background Danica does NOT have--a big deal.
4-Johanna obviously has a good CC that knows how to give her a good car, as its her low funded crew and lack of available parts for repairs and pit stops that is her weakness.
Bottom line--Danica will probably NEVER be as good as Johanna for these reasons as it took Hornish 4 1/2 yrs 145 races to finally win a NNS race. Danica right now has the equivalant in NNs of 1 1/2 yrs only--52 races + 6 cup races--big difference-- but lets jump on Danica every race for not being able to magically develop those skills that come natural for drivers like Johanna and all the male young drivers who had stock car wheels in their hands along with their spoons.
Oh well believe what you want as its said, you cant stop the haters from hating but at least get your facts straight before posting crap once again.. BTW--while Ive been against Danica going to Cup, now Iam actually thinking thats the best idea as her Cup team hopefully will be better at giving her a good car as it cant get much worse form this NNS team, as jr motorsports is having serious issues financially and otherwise and hard to say what their future holds anyway--sad for them--thats all.
NO Iam not sticking around to further debate this crap about drivers and apples to onion comparisons as its not an even comparison.
