Danica Patrick has problems getting through a NASCAR race. Because of her problems making it to the end of a race without crashing the car, she often times looks for excuses before the race even starts. This week her concern or excuse includes point the finger at Jacques Villeneuve being in the field.

Patrick should consider keeping her mouth shut and driving the car. If she drove half as good as she talks she would have found the winners circle by now. Patrick needs to make excuses for her in abilities to drive a clean race.

Villeneuve is a world-class driver and he has shown he can  compete with the best of them,Patrick on the other hand has not. Patrick has a great race team behind her and the car she tires to drive. All she has to do is show up each week and drive the car.

She proved in Michigan last week she has trouble doing that. She could not get the car up to speed. Now that she has to battle the best in the world she is back to making excuses again. Try just getting in the car and driving a good race Danica.

You might be surprised as to what comes next. Maybe you’ll be able to finish the race without having a crash. But something tells me that isn’t going to happen. If Danica is afraid to get on the track with Villeneuve, the team should consider getting another driver.

    Danica is afraid to race against anyone! All she is good at is posing in her bikini and doing commercials with Dale Earnhardt, Jr. She can’t finish in the top 20 let alone the top 10 on any consistent basis, crashes in just about every race she is in, throws a hissy fit when things don’t go her way and has a narcissistic, self-centered ego that will never get her anywhere in NASCAR. Why NASCAR puts so much emphasis on their web page and broadcasts about this over-exposed, under-achiever is beyond me. When she can prove that she can drive with the big boys, maybe I’ll change my tune. Until then, that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it. OK, now that’s off my chest, go ahead and blast me.

      I’ll blast you with kudos for straight talking. A lot of people I know personally seem to think that she can drive a race car just because she’s attractive, and this has led to a few arguments about her abilities as a driver. When a driver comes to Nascar from open wheel racing, they either have it or they don’t. For example, Tony Stewart had it right away and has been a winner, whereas Dario Franchiti found out very quickly that he didn’t have what it takes to succeed in Nascar. Danica is a textbook example of AIN’T GOT IT.

    This is such an ignorant idiotic post it’s laughable. No facts to back anything up. Just an awful article based on no good and factual information. Whoever wrote this should be removed from their position.

      How about the fact that she has yet to win a (NASCAR) race? How about the fact that she has a hard time finishing a race? Those are pretty compelling facts.

      anything to make a story. no facts involved no interviews done. complete garbage as a article. it is very hard to compete on the best racing circuit in the world – she is a rookie but more importantly she is part of the show – the media exploits who she is just for THE STORY – history and sponsors will dictate what kind of racer she will be.

        Who pissed on LG’s shoe? One of the greatest of the worst posts I’ve ever seen! This guy knows nothing about racing . . .

    Story is bogus. DP races and puts up with this crap. Put on your helmet and see how well the author would do.
