mikaloyd: Any dogecoin car updates?


Well, it's guaranteed to finish at least 20th with Kyle and J-Lo out

/it's currently 19th because Wallmendinger is listed as "OFF" at 20th

19th, ahead of only the wrecked cars. How much more money does that get him from the 78K minimum?

There are no "Josh Wise fans". They voted the clown car in on a lark.

Would the internet implode if Josh Wise pulled this off somehow?

Seriously. Danica can at least drive a little bit. Wise is just a field-filler.

At least Wise can keep his fenders uncrumpled, so he's got that going for him.

I do. She's actually won a race (in IndyCar). She drives for Tony Stewart, a pretty good judge of talent. She'll never get any help from the good ol' boys, though, and it shows.

Wise is there because the rules are set up in a way that allowed him to be there. I don't quite get all the heartache over it. If Danica was there instead people would be biatching about how she doesn't belong there.

Blind squirrel, nut.  She has consistently shown that she should be nowhere near a cup car and at the very least should be Nationwide.

JPM, Hornish, Dario etc. were some of the best drivers in Open Wheel and couldn't make it go in NASCAR.  And even they got some top 10 finishes sometimes.  But Danica had ONE WIN and was a field-filler.  She is a marketing construct because the other American women in racing are not as attractive as her.

Because Wise's ride is a joke. Why not enter Herbie and get Lindsay Lohan to drive it? She might have had a shot, however unlikely. He has no shot at all. It's a guy who doesn't belong there in a sub-par car, all so that Redditors can jerk off to how hip they are.

One whole race in a b-level race in Japan.  And stop with this Tony Stewart is a good judge of talent.  She came built in with a sponsor who was flush with cash and that's why she got the seat.  And NASCAR sees her as a good way to expand the sport to women on the national mainstream level.

Might want to reverse that.  Josh has fans who tossed clicks or crowd-funded him.  Danica has a sponsor who has a shiat ton of money and values marketing above all else.

This is patently false.

Was she handed a lot to get here? Yep, but she can hang. Heck, she's ahead of Kurt in points currently, and he's won a race.

He's out there, and while not doing well, he's doing respectably. Hasn't caused a wreck or gotten caught in one.

It's not like we thought he'd win it all...or that Princess would have done any better either. It is what it is. I'm okay with it.

I'm sure she's a darn good IndyCar driver. NASCAR, not so much.

And did he just call Jeff Gor-Don a flame?

QueenMamaBee: Do you think there are a lot of people out there who are fans of Danica's driving abilities?


She has her days. She's good on the superspeedways and we just saw her scare the crap out of everyone at Kansas. Her placements on a track-by-track basis are looking like they're improving: Vegas she went from 33rd last year to 21st this year; Darlington was 31st-28th-22nd; Kansas was 32nd-last-7th; Talladega was 33rd-33rd-22nd, California is 26th to 14th.

As for next week at Charlotte, her trajectory is 30th-29th-20th.

I mean, it's still not IMPRESSIVE, but all that experience talk we kept hearing about does seem to have some truth behind it.

OK, I'll put it this way:

Danica is dangerous because she's got all of Kyle Busch's arrogance with half his talent.  Better?
 
2014-05-17 10:48:22 PM  
Those two 33rds at Talladega were, of course, due to being Princess Crumplefenders.
 
2014-05-17 10:48:44 PM  
UGH guess I should root for Kasey now.

//sobs//
 
2014-05-17 10:48:45 PM  
I'm having computer issues, and my phone is dying, so I just came in here quickly to say DAMMIT KYLE!

Have fun with the rest of the race, and see ya for the Coke 600.

But he's just a beneficiary of the way the rules were set up. Maybe NASCAR wanted to introduce the sport to a bunch of people who otherwise would have never watched a race or maybe they didn't think their cunning plan all the way through. Either way it not worth the amount of pissing and moaning going on about it.
 
2014-05-17 10:49:25 PM  
I know they always accuse Gordon of being "flaming," but this was taking that phrase too seriously

So she's about on par with David Gilliland. Why isn't DW all giddy about him? Why isn't he making half-naked commercials? Oh. Boobs.
