What is your gut feeling going into this season?

I think Danica will set some realistic goals, but want more than that out of herself. She is a goal oriented person, and is always striving to learn all she can about everything in racing.
My gut feeling is she will be a top15 driver at the end of the season. I believe she can accomplish that.

now that is a prediction!!!

usually the top 15 (or 16) are still being talked about possibly making the chase late in the season. I dont see her in this conversation. I think if she flirts with making the top 20, it would be because she went with no DNFs. Which SHR is pretty good at not getting to many DNFs. (barring plate races)

Think staying in the top 25 is a realistic goal.
All of EGR missed the top 20 last season.
Joey missed the top 20 the year before.
year before that Dale Jr, truex, & Bad brad missed the top 20.
Just dont see her making the top 20. Lots of quality teams out there. her 1st full season if she makes the top 25 wouldnt be nothing to be embarrassed about.

Stewart Haas Racing Notes from the NASCAR Sprint Media Tour: #10-Danica Patrick will not be using #14-Tony Stewart's owners points to start the year. Stewart said, "I worked hard for my points" and believes Patrick will be fine. The #10 team finished the 2012 season 33rd in owners points but been told those owners points will be used for Tommy Baldwin's #7 team with driver Dave Blaney. Baldwin will use the #36 owners points for his 2nd team, car #36 [unknwon driver/plans]. So the #10 car goes into the season with no owners points and Partick will have to make the races via speed.

My thinking is finishing the year in the 20's. I think she'll have some terrific runs but some lackluster runs too. Maybe she'll beat Jr for most popular driver. :shock:

SHR bought the 42nd place points for Danica. So she still have to get in on speed, but if there is a rain out, she will make the field.
