I agree with everything you stated. From a pure business point of view, I can see why "team owner" Tony would make this move.

I've just never liked Danica. I don't like the way she presents & sells herself. I don't like her GoDaddy ads... makes her look like a cheap floozy. As a driver, she is only so-so (IMO).

But there are plenty of people (read: men) who do like her and that means $$$$. And let's face it, NASCAR teams, like any other business, is all about $$$$.

I, personally, don't like it and am going to find it very difficult to support her driving for SHR. I will probably just ignore her (as much as is possible) and focus on Tony & Ryan.



HH I agree with most of what you said particularly the part about the go daddy ads. However in terms of her driving ability I think she has shown us with more time on the track she will improve. She has done alright in the last few races and can hold her own. I am not a fan of hers but she is one of a few women drivers with experience.

Re: Danica and SHR

Better Danica than Carl Edwards? Well, Cousin Carl re-ups with his former team. Gotta say Danica won't last long if she can't drive.
How about the Brickyard race. Sat right across from Tony's pit box. About jumped out of my skin when The Brat overran his pit box and rammed Tony while his car was in the pits. (BOO, HISS :( ) You have to hand it to Tony he did a very good job overcoming the race stebacks to finish fairly well.

Re: Danica and SHR

Okay, I've read all the opinions here and I'm going to add my two cents.
I don't have a problem with Danica......as a matter of fact I think she has managed to help open doors for other women in racing. Is she a great driver? Only time will tell, but so far I see improvement over last year. As far as nascar she is still learning. Heck Paul Menard won the Brickyard last weekend and let's face it......he stunk up the place for several years before he finally learned to drive. He literally created job security for the wall painters at the tracks.
As far as all the remarks about Danica's "Go Daddy" commercials, I can't believe that people blame her for exploiting sex in the commercials. She doesn't write or have any say in them. She has to do them as part of her contract, and sponsorship. Blame the sponsors for using her sex appeal to sell their product. If you have ever listened to any serious interviews with her you would realize that she isn't interested in selling her sex, but rather wants to be sold as a driver, first and foremost!
I say, have an open mind and give the woman a chance, just as you would any other driver who is new to this sport. Hopefully the naysayers will change their minds as she improves over time. If it opens the door for more women in nascar then she has accomplished a major undertaking.

Re: Danica and SHR

go daddy is nothing but sex, even when they dont use danica, they are using that gal from the biggest loser and they make her dress sexy, heck even the one with joan rivers, they made it so joan had a boob job, but at the end of the day, people are going to hate on danica, and that is their right, i dont see anyone up in arms about JCC and her bathing suit pictures, its the great ol double standard....

Re: Danica and SHR

I've posted before that I don't like the sleazy kind of reputation Danica has made for herself. I hope it doesn't reflect on women in NASCAR in general. But I love the new Go Daddy commercials that poke fun at her bikini-slut status. They really are funny commercials and makes me realize most of it is tongue and cheek and just funny. However, a woman who has come this far in this industry is a role model for young girls in NASCAR (and I mean fans even more than drivers). I think she needs to realize this or maybe she is starting to realize it.

BUT that really has nothing to do with her coming to SHR. I think the bottom line is she could help SHR's bottom line in the end. ??
