Have you been following her time trials at Indy? She currently has the 4th position and she would have gotten pole had she not made a slight mistake in one of the turns.

She's clocking in laps at over 227.

I knew she drove from hosting powerblock tv on Spike, but that's about it. Her website don't offer too much either.

I love how Robbie Gordon is crying in his beer about how he won't race in the IRL until they tack a weight penalty on to Danica. Seems as though Robbie has consumed a few of those beers - tears and all - and weighs about 105 lbs more than Danica.

I'm sure the same reasoning is attached to Robbies poor showing in NASCAR. "It's all them skinny drivers. They weigh less and go faster." Wah, Wah, Wah.

The only reason I'm watching the Indy race today is because of Danica.

Danica did a great job!

We watched it and rooted for her the whole way. We are Danica fans, and young women racer fans in general. Danica was one of the women in HotRod's article that Melissa (our daughter) was featured in. She's got the balls to run with the big dogs! I have to admit though that I was worried about Danica's safety. Must be a Dad thing
