"Racer if Patty Moise or Shawna Robinson had the backing Danica has. Danica wouldn't have been able to hold a candle to either of them in a stock car"
Keep dreaming as in todays world of the tougher competition they wouldn't be able to drive the cars, let alone qualify them, so get off your "living in the past syndrome" as you sound like Dave Despain who knows he is but admits it. Your comments don't work in todays world of competition, not even close and all that matters are the record books and milestones Danica has clearly bested ALL these past females and their small success, so your point is irrelelvant in todays world.
I agree Danica does want to win more then anything but her success & populairity and what she achieved in Indycar and now what she brings to nascar is well worth it being notable success. Therefore, give it a rest as the past is in the past and those woman struggled and Danica still struggles with competing & besting the men. However she has achieved more then any of the past female racers, (open wheel and Nascar), in every category so accept that, as it certainly isn't easy nowdays as competition is much tougher then yrs past and these woman of the past couldn't come close to competing like they once did and you should know that if you followed the past and now the present day. When Danica broke the best finish for a female getting 4th in Vegas yrs ago Dave Despain even said the other female was 10 laps down and still was 5th so competiton was nothing back then but that was 50 yrs ago also, but just an example. of the past not being equal to the present.
BTW--cut the crap mentioning Danicas good equip and team in comparison as well, as we know how lousy this SHR team has been so far this yr, Daytona a different story. Truth is Danica could've signed with a S&P or low funded team and maybe had a better handling car as we see with current races results in comparison to SHR with some drivers like Ragan at Dega for example.
No one can compare nowdays to the past so give it a rest as the current is all that matters and someday another female will come along and break all Danicas records Iam sure. However, no other female can ever be the "first" to achieve something record breaking and Danica has lots of those and that will always stand in the records books forever, so whatever she achieves in the future will be added to that as she is right now the most successful female driver on the planet and deserves the respect for that at least--end of story. It isn't easy for females, as history shows and all those watching it nowdays should know that as well..
