True that.

My Momma always warned about fast women in fast cars but I figure I could handle those curves.

All night long if necessary.

It would be like the Dakar Rally.

Giggetty.

Actually Kournikova was actually 8th in the world at one point. So, making that comparison with her doesn't hold much water.

Also, isn't the Nationwide Series like the "AAA" of NASCAR? I don't know if there is a comparable tour in Women's Tennis, but, that actually makes Patrick less comparable to Kournikova.

But, Kournikova never won a tournament, and at least Patrick has won an Indy Car race.

Kournikova was also ranked #1 in doubles and won multiple titles, including two Austrailian Opens.

see it's pictures like that that leave me conflicted...
If she's a good driver she should be famous for the driving (as apposed to the wrecking, but I digress) whatever she looks like.
But with an ass(ette) like that does she even need to get into the car in the first place...

So actually, according to the headline, it's a perfect comparison.

I'm surprised she has not yet gone for some fake boobs, so good for her.
 
2012-11-18 09:57:11 PM  
Well, I'll be curious to see how she does with a competent crew chief instead of somebody whose primary qualification is 'Dale Earnhardt's cousin'.

Still think she's a competent mid-packer capable of winning a race once in a while when circumstances are right, but she may be slightly better than that.
 
2012-11-18 10:05:30 PM  
Wow, a top 10 in the minor leagues... Time for a parade!

Well, I was at least taking the ellipsis in the headline to mean that the subby considered AK to be a never winning hack, and then saying "But look, DP is in the Top 10", when, actually, AK was in the top 10.

There are much worse people to be compared to. Anna K is a hot piece of ass, and rich. So what if she kinda sucked as a professional tennis player? Andy Roddick hasn't won much either, yet he doesn't get near as much shiat.

Haters gonna hate.
 
2012-11-18 10:33:19 PM  
Think how good she would be if she didn't keep stopping to ask for directions.

They dumped him a few races back. Hendrick has been loaning out top crew chiefs since then. She even had Steve farkin' Letarte on her box. (Giggity.)

It didn't make much of a difference.

She's an okay driver who will luck/be pushed into a win sooner or later, so long as she stays in top equipment long enough, which she will as long as she's sponsor-bait.

As mentioned above she won several things in doubles.

I came into this thread to point out that Kournikova was actually an accomplished doubles player- I'm glad to see I've been beaten to it.

How the f$ck does that happen when you never win a race and wreck out half of your races?

Might wanna research the guy who won the minor league two years ago. heard he's good or something.

10th sounds pretty respectable...until you realize only 13 drivers ran the whole season.

Timmy the Tumor: How the f$ck does that happen when you never win a race and wreck out half of your races?


She races in the 2nd tier NASCAR Nationwide series. It's full of up and comers trying to prove themselves for a few races, a handful of has-beens, never-weres, and guys from the top series interloping just for the sake of racing. Having a full time ride essentially guarantees a top 20 finish in that series.

There's some connection to racing in the NW series and this image:

Actually she was gifted an Indy car race since most drivers didn't make it over to the race which was just ran as an exhibition then given credit after she won. Its all about the PR and even then Indy car was minor leagues since a lot of good drivers weren't racing there back then.

And yes nationwide is at best AAA and closer to AA or developmental league.

Thanks for the clarifications.

So, basically, subby is a NASCAR/racing homer who knows nothing about tennis, and tried to make it sound like Danica Patrick is compared to AK because both are seen as "hot women who never won anything", but, now, DP is "better", even though, she's still never accomplished what AK has? Got it.

Amusing since I played her in the Sonic racing game.

For the last god damn time you morans, Anna K was an elite, top ten, grand slam (in doubles) champion tennis player.

I hate you all.
 
2012-11-19 12:04:50 AM  
she was 1 of 13 racers to start all 33 races.

Yes it is, but then its amazing how much knowledge you claim to know, if you actually knew anything you would be dangerous. But you don't so you're wrong. We know you're really just here to shiat on anyone trying to point out how over rated a woman is in sport or if players are being exploited like in college.

I'm amazed none of you tried to protest when she was forced to run in lower divisions first when its obvious she's not up to their level.

Yeah, not sure what you mean Subby...Kournikova was in the Top 10...but she was competing against other women.

Auto racing is one of the sports where sex doesn't matter much. Shirley Muldowney won 4 championships in drag racing. And she competed in the highest levels.

Timmy the Tumor: How the f$ck does that happen when you never win a race and wreck out half of your races?


Because of the new rules instituted by NASCAR a few years ago where drivers can only claim points for one of either cup, Nationwide, or trucks only. They got tired of seeing full time cup drivers winning championships in the junior series. Almost guaranteed if eligible, Joey Logano with his 9 wins (and likely wouldn't have skipped races held in locations away from the Cup series) would have breezed to the championship and 5-6 other drivers would have finished the season ahead of Danica in the point standings. This "top-10" finish needs an asterisk.

Against actual athletes. Nascar is just a vehicle turning in circles - a sport for the retarded, inbred.

Um, how many AAA and AA and developmental league players are there? Add 'em up. Now, how many of them show up on national teevee every farkin' week during their season? How many have national name recognition? How many of them can the average sports fan name or even recognize? How many of them are garnering major sponsors?

That would be none.

Patrick is well beyond their bush league anonymity.

She's Dale Jr with tits. Overrated. Hyped up for fans. Everything given to her. She's good enough to be there, but her "success" is a media fabrication.

I think she was better off in Indycar, where she had talent (to an extent) and money (endless amounts of it) behind her. And with all of that, she wasn't spectacular.

The flaw in your comment is that more than half of all NASCAR drivers don't belong in the top 10.

I was thinking about this a little more. Maybe she's more like the Susan Sarandon of NASCAR.
