Ed_Severson: Wow, is that wrong
steamingpile: Oh yeah, people have selective amnesia about her win and ignore it was cancelled at first due to water seepage from an earthquake, drivers didn't want to race on the damages track, it was only half a field of cars, only 14 of those finished the race, she only won when two cars ran out of gas, and it was talked of being an exhibition only race before she won. The only reason it was changed was because George wanted the PR boost of having the only female driver to win an open wheel race.
Timmy the Tumor: How the f$ck does that happen when you never win a race and wreck out half of your races?
dletter: 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.
