On the other hand,it is a fact that being a good looking female is a large part of what fuels "Danica mania",and she does know that and takes full advantage of it,which is really a smart thing on her part,you work with what you have in this world to make ends meet,and she isn't doing anything anybody else would not do.

I do believe that if Danica were just plain Dan she would not yet have a ride in the top series and would be toiling in the trucks or the Nationwide series,but she has shown that she is willing to learn her craft instead of acting like the world owes her something like she did in Indy car where absolutely nothing was ever her fault,so we shall see,I'm withholding judgement on Danica as a stock car driver for now,but I wish her well.

She's a pretty good driver, but there's at least a few women racers in the developmental rungs of NASCAR who will probably never get 1/4th the chance she gets because they aren't as good looking and/or as willing to flaunt their tits for PR.

Hell, Simona de Silvestro nearly burning alive in the Indy circuit (and attempting to just wrap up second degree burns and drive afterward) should have gotten her more pub than Danica's latest lame GoDaddy ad, but as far as I know there's no glamor pix of her anywhere.
