Yee-Haw! The Gen Six car makes it's official debut this afternoon at the Daytona 500 on Fox! Let the season begin :D

And We're off, hopefully today no one will make any boneheaded mistakes like happened yesterday. Danica Patrick is the pole sitter I've read.

Johnson starts the season off with the win at Daytona. JR in second. Ms. Patrick in 6th.

Ms Patrick will probably never win a race, at one point She was in 3rd place.

And why do you say that? Just curious how you came to such a stupid conclusion. All drivers that start a race have a chance to win. Being in third place at one point and finishing sixth does not then put you in a life-long category of "will probably never win a race..." Your theories on....everything....are lame and flawed.

I'll ignore that just this once. I'll explain, She has sponsors, so She only needs to be seen, plus She's operating on a budget, cars cost real money to replace or to rebuild, since I think the cars are largely hand built, they just look like what is on the street. She had one opening where She could have moved to the left and up in the Daytona 500, but She didn't, don't get Me wrong I'd love to see Her win outright. But I'm not sure that's Her strategy, as I don't think She has ever won any race, finished in the top 10 or less, yes, She does that like clock work, take chances that could be potentially winning or even maybe dangerous? So far, No.

I will merely say your statement about Danica is judgemental and sexist Vic. She's got a great guy Johnny Benson (related to my wife) helping her. It's a matter of time but she'll win.

I'm sorry Blurf, but I meant no offense, I'll red x My previous statements. I do want Her to win, I always have in fact.

I would say the same thing of a man as a woman, so please don't say sexist as that's not in My nature.

You win the championship by consistency. During Dale Earnhardt Sr's first championship he never won a race--but he consistently finished in the top 10 or top 5 each race. Due to this fact I don't put a lot of stock in having to win races, per say
