Re: J Long...............

As said before, Johanna was raised in dirt tracks and short track like most all the young male drivers so she should be good. Also qualifying doesnt count for much as its NOT where you start but WHERE you finish. I said before she has RCR equip like the Dillon and Sadler but yes her crew is pt and lowfunded and makes mistakes but so do many others as you & others complain about Ryans crew all the time making mistakes and they are all veterans. Also Johanna qualifying well and running in the top 10 for awhile doesnt count for much if she cant finish, as her best finish is only 12th, nothing to bragg about, as good finishes is what most people look at.

NO--Iam NOT here to criticize Johanna-- just set the record straight--again. Johanna has the necessary background to be very good in this series & may be the female star of the future, but first she needs one thing--to become marketable for big sponsors-- to help her get a better ride with better teams and crews etc and you should know how tough that is with so many winning drivers without & losing their rides.

Johanna is a young talented female in a male dominated series, but She has to show she can be a good speaker and photogenic to attract the GP mainstream attention and the media so sponsors will want her to represent them and only time will tell with that. The other thing that could happen is a team like RCR etc could put her in one of their cars with a team sponsorship package and that would work for her well to see what she could do with a good crew, as she tests with them anyway at times? Bad luck with the blown tire again and thats her 2nd this yr I believe? :roll:

"*insert Racer1 giving you her bio, then start talking about sponsors*"

Exactly right Schmoopy1000, as what dont you guys get? Shes showing how fast her RCR car is--its just her PT Lowfunded crew that has issues--period. When low funded teams use top teams equip they get the SAME equip as the top teams drivers have, why is that so tough to understand other then you dont want to? I'll be that Dillon or Sadler could jump in HER car and not have any issues other then changing the drivers seat for comforts of course and minor adjustments during pit stops. However with one of their crews who knows how well she could run without pit mistakes but they do all have them at times. The CC on Johanna's lowfunded team is said to be very good and apparently knows how to setup HER car as she is showing and saying how great it is in qualifying and during the race, despite the crew messing up during the race. I'll keep mentioning this untill some of you start to GET IT.

To sum up:
1--Danica has TOP Hendricks equip with a top team with JRM, who hasnt won a race in 2 yrs, and she IS without a stock car background, yet she should have several wins by now, when Hornish took 4 1/2 yrs to finally win?.
2--Johanna has garbage RCR equip, which IS competing for the NNs Championship with 2 drivers and numerous wins and she DOES have a stock car background but poor Johanna--c'mon--really? Course maybe goodyear is giving her their old tires as well since she keeps having tire issues-c'mom once again--she is good-- and with a better team she will be better--maybe??

BTW--as said--maybe some here should go read her bio you might learn something about HER early yrs of experience in stock cars, dirt tracks and short track racing vs Danica.

No offense to Johanna meant of course as she is talented and has the background to succeed, but those qualitys alone wont get her or any driver even change for a nickel without a big sponsor stepping up or a big sponsored team giving her a ride? It takes MUCH more these days then even results as you guys should know? We are seeing the loss of sponsors every day, even for most popular drivers recently announced, not to mention even winning drivers without rides, so its not easy? Good Luck to Johanna and her old used crappy RCR equip-yeh right. Seriously--Best of Luck to her. 8-)

BTW--just saw where espn said mr "daredevil" Travis Pastrano may have a Ft ride in NNS next yr--good grief--but should be interesting? :roll:
