becareful. Racer will explain to you that Dirt's wins are no big deal


I never said they were or weren't...and I really don't think I care too much about someone on a message board's opinion of what she did or didn't do, or if Danica is great or not. There are a LOT of female drivers much more skilled and much more deserving, but Danica has the funding and is a marketing person's dream, I won't deny that. She's actually quite personable, but if you look at her ACTUAL race results, in ANY series, the only win she has was a gas mileage win in Japan, that's it. There are women racing and winning EVERY WEEK, all over the world, but they just don't have the funding to move up, 6 months ago, Dirt never even started a real race car...just saying...I'm proud of her, at least she's racing.


I agree, but there are people(racer1) that want to say Danica didn't do well in Indy because of her equipment.

I'm glad Dirt is getting the chance and HAVING FUN!!

If she sticks with it some day may see Sr's grand-daughter racing in Cup

and Uncle Dale doesn't sponsor, seems he is taking the lead that his daddy did you want to race go out there and work for it.

Re: Speaking of Female Drivers

Very cute and starting that young and that kind of background on dirt she could be great someday. Also given who she is related to, she will get the opportunity if she doesnt change her mind as sometimes young people do as they grow up? 8-)
