Nice pics as usual.
Most people like the "haters" dont really know Danica and they dont want to as being hugely popular and the one focused on over others simply makes them hate. Also as you probalby know but others dont, aside from the race track where she can be very serious, and very busy with signing autogrphs and media requirments, sometimes fans get forgotten due to the vast number of them, but away from the track she is as normal as anyone and more importantly wants to be left alone. Ive seen her at charity events or even at tracks hanging with her crews or other drivers laughing and joking like any other driver, but when the media shows up she often takes the attention away from other better drivers and many dont like that. Indycar drivers hated her for that out of jealousy and iam sure some Nascar drivers do as well, but Boo HOO for them?
Also she IS a great speaker at charity events and for her sponsors--obviously--and therefore she is "who she is" representing her sponsors better then most and some hate her for that as well--shallow people or just haters> Only Dale Jr can relate with his huge popularity moreso then hers but Jr has one big hang-up if you listen to him--he IS a lousy speaker often stuttering or stamering appearing not sure what to say on camera, but he is the face of Nascar to most and most popular--for now--but other drivers are like that also.
There is NO one like Danica who has made herself who she is by being SO successfull even with her meager stats some criticize, but those meager stats are still the best for any female in auto racing at this time, and some hate her for that as well--Boo Hoo for them. She IS the one with the last laugh on all the critics & haters as she IS the one with all the fame and fortune to bragg about IF she wanted to, but she doesnt, and that makes her a better person then most others who choose to trash her for achieving something they never will--overall success in life, that others can only dream about.
BTW--one main thing I value in her is her positive character and her ability to ignore all the haters and just keep smiling and not let it show as that has to be admired more then anything, as others have said as well.
