    No wonder Danica could not win a race.

    I cannot think of a single winning driver that was not a car person. To her they were like purse.


    Danica Patrick rang in 2019 with a $122,004 payday.
    The retired racer sold her 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo through a Bring A Trailer auction that closed on New Year’s Eve.

    Patrick purchased the silver coupe in 2006 and only added around 1,750 miles to its 7,450-mile tally, despite it being the only car she owned. She told The Street in 2017 that it had been sitting in storage for years and that she drove a Ford Expedition SUV that the automaker loaned to her as a member of its racing team.
    “I’m not really a car person,” she said.

    Patrick elaborated on a The Joe Rogan Experience podcast last January that the main reason she didn’t drive the Gallardo much was that it didn’t have a cupholder, and that she preferred practical cars to sporty ones.

    “Cars are like purses for me,” she told Rogan. “I just need one nice one, and when it wears out, I’ll get a new one.”
    And now she has plenty of spare cash to do just that.

    I thought your child bride bought you a mans purse a couple years ago for your birthday and that was where you store your balls.

    Come on, be real. Only liberals watch that channel and none of them have balls.

    Damn we were off topic on the second post. I don't think we can break that record.

    I mean, is it possible for a thread to go off topic in the original post?

    Well - that's pretty damning for a race car driver. Good thing she retired (winless) and has that GoDaddy gig to fall back on.

    Laugh your ass off James. Just wait until you see my Body Painting girls tomorrow. They will burn your boxer shorts off.

    I can dump them just about as fast as you can post them.

    I was really hoping that you would NOT take it that way.

    That's true Tom, but they did not have the top of the line equipment like Danica did.

    And in Indy Car she had a weight advantage that ranged from 30 to 100 pounds. And she still could not win a competitive race.

    They took her weight out of the picture by making the minimum weight include the driver in Indy car, besides at 100# she lacked the strength of the men.

    As for top flight equipment some did some did not. I take nothing away from her. She managed pole position a few times in Indy car IIRC, and did at Daytona with Nascar. She can drive, imho.

    Not when she was driving in Indy Car. It was a minimum weight of a car without the driver.

    So maybe she can drive (i.e., qualify) but she can't race.

    I agree with what one of the other top drivers said about her. Any fool can go fast and wreck but she is not and never will be a real race car driver. Qualifying is not that hard as you don't have a full field of cars trying to win. I was never nervous during qualifying but when the race started I was always pretty nervous until the first lap or so was sorted out.
