That's funny--You clearly no nothing about her after all this time proving what she can do for ratings etc when she does well. Facts are a lot more fans care about her in the mainstream then they do Kurt or other Nascar drivers whose fan bases depend on Nascar fans only--hers doesn't.
Danica is the ONLY driver who would cause a media storm like no others if she decided to do the Indy500 again but as she said it would only be with a top team capable of giving her a winning car and what most didn't know is that it also meant NO Andretti although her contract said if she came back for the Indy500 within a certain time frame, it had to be with AA. That relationship ended badly for obvious reasons, Andretti lost millions in sponsorship $$$'s when she left as Godaddy had to buy her out to move her to Nascar and that's why they had to fund the other driver W/Andretti (at a much lower amount) & when that contract was up, they pulled out of Indycar completely.
SHR wants Danica to focus on Nascar but facts are Tony S said he would support her IF she wanted to do the double at some point. Check her stats at the Indy500 all her yrs there as she always finished in the top 10 or much better setting records like a record 4th star 7 finish and laps led as a rookie, best for any female driver and many other male drivers. Even Tony S best finish at the 500 was 9th only & Danica also got a podium 3rd at the 500 in 2009, easily proving she is probably the only Nascar driver now with a real chance of winning the 500 if she can get a decent ride and decides to do so--that's all.
Kurt is a waste of time and while some media will cover him it wont be close to what Danica has proven she can bring--let him try and watch and see as most Indycar fans hate Nascar anyway and even AJ last yr for Penske did well but didn't help the ratings--proof enough for you?

Testing for them last yr is nothing compared to an actual 500 race and he'll find that out the hard way. These Nascar drivers think they can just go into another series and win--what a joke--and Indycar is so desperate they think it'll give them some needed PR---not really? AJ had a chance last yr with Penske but he's had previous open wheel experience and Penske has won the 500 alot. Kurt needs to focus on SHR moreso for his new buddy boss Haas then a PR stunt that wont even be that.

Take your sexism outlook and you put on your glasses and read the better stats between him and Danica running the Indy500--not even close his entire Indycar career or nascar as we are NOT talking about Nascar or the Coke 600 as its about whos got the the best chance to win the Indy 500. Tonys a great driver but the Indy500 was NEVER his best race--Oh and BTW--the topic is about the Indy500 & Kurt, other then bringing Danica in it in a sarcastic way as usual from you old foggys who cant stand a female driver. Danica, Kurt and Tony in the same equip wouldn't even be a race at the Indy 500--she'd easily beat both of them--no contest --Nascar now a different story--so far?
