    Danica Is Smarter Than Everyone Thought

    Well, I have to hand it to Danica Patrick. I always knew she was smart and a great racecar driver but so far this year, her instincts were shown to be spot on ! This woman left Indycar at a good time. After speaking with her many times, I had this feeling she would leave, especially talking to her back in 2009 at Kentucky.

    She made the move because of several reasons, in no particular order...

    1. More money & exposure
    2. She loves to drive stock cars
    3. Lack of ovals in Indycar
    4. The direction Indycar was going

    So far what I have seen, solidifies her decision. Indycar losing American venues left and right, particularly ovals. Too many road/street courses. The new car design not being up to par. All this penalty and rule violations coming out every week. Indy 500 having small entry numbers. This series direction is on a path to destruction unless there are changes made.

    Danica definitely did the right thing and move to NASCAR. You go Girl !!!!

    Why is this in an Indycar forum?

    What a dumb thread....

    She left for two reasons

    It's in the Indycar forum because it shows the reasons why she left and the problems Indycar has now.

    Well it needs to be the Indycar controversey forums...


    Ya know Danica did come up through go karts, European series, etc., I.e., road courses.

    Why would she car about penalties? NASCAR hands them out just as much too.

    Why would she car about the limited number of entries for the Indy 500 this year? One freaking year...an exception to the norm.

    Last year there were 35 plus entries and she barely made the field.

    I'm not even an advocate of street races, but the grandstands at Sao Paulo will be far more packed than they will be at Richmond this weekend. Bank on it. And last night's NNWS turnout was embarrassing for nascar.

    Leave to the cab series to latch on to a novelty act after the novelty has already worn off. I hear they may start planking in nascar garages this year.

    Don't care why she left just happy she's gone. Her hype/success ratio was nauseating

    That Richmond race lastnight was awesome! One of the best finishes Ive seen in a long time. Yes, I wish Danica would of done better but I still enjoyed the race very much. I guarantee you that the Sao Paulo race will not be nearly as exciting as Richmond was lastnight.

    Maybe, maybe not. But 10X as many people will be bored by it.

    This guy used to post on the 1070 board. I think he's some sort of bot posting useless info about a driver that no one cares about.

    WGAS about Danica, this is an INDYCAR forum. Take your embarrassing obsession someplace else that actually gives a rat's @ss about Nascar.

    Danica had a solid run last night guys, battling with the likes of Robert Richardson Jr. and Eric McClure. Danica also got beat by the other female driver (Johanna Long) that ESPN NEVER talks about.

    Yes, she certainly has more "exposure" through her gdaddy ads.

    You can be a critical fan without being a Critic... Or can you? Quit your b'tchn and enjoy the racing :D

    I am starting to wonder if DanicaFan really is Danica just having fun with us IndyCar fans?? Does he ever post during races? Has anyone ever seen them together in person (not in photos)??

    As far as I am concerned she moved for money which is a perfectly good reason to move.... and that is pretty much the end of the story....

    From the amount of posts so quickly, she still is on the minds of people at Indy Car. Good luck Danica!
