While I don’t think this is a good move for Danica, especially not committing to a two-year deal, at least she’s with a quality team. …as quality as you can get in a car that still uses a carburetor. The only thing that I own that still uses a carburetor is my lawnmower! hmmm…. Danica to Lawn Mower Racing? That could be highly entertaining. I digress, though. She may make her debut at Daytona next year during Speedweek. Will she do well? Dunno. She’s always complaining about her car having lots of understeer, and stockcars are prone to being very loose, so perhaps her driving style will match up well. Regardless, I think her stock car efforts will interfere and hinder her IndyCar performance. She just put in her best season ever, finishing top amongst her teammates and tops amongst all the other drivers that don’t drive for Ganassi or Penske. This should be the time for her to run with that momentum and push for an even better 2010. Splitting her attentions between IndyCar and Nationwide will do nothing but limit her potential in both. Even Juan Pablo Montoya agrees with me! At any rate, I hope she does well enough and doesn’t get maimed in “The Big One” at ‘Dega or somewhere as her car or someone else’s ends up upside-down, sideways, or whatever. Just ask Dario how much fun it is to get t-boned in one of those cars. I can’t say I’m a big fan of this move. Might it bring some fans to IndyCar? …perhaps, but I think its more of a positive for NASCAR than for IndyCar, and it may likely be a negative for IndyCar in the end.
