    The ONLY reason Danica got/gets so much camera time and publicity is because she is a she in a (traditionally) man's sport. If ANY guy/dude/man/male raced with the exact same stats...you'd never hear his name mentioned except for at driver introductions.

    Did somebody mention Scott Speed? lol. Is that guy even still racing? His ego was waaaaaay bigger than his skills. It was actually pretty comical.

    Scott had a lackluster career for sure. But even he managed to have 5 wins in NASCAR and ARCA. Something the Touring Princess never did, despite running in both series.

    The last I saw/heard of Scott Speed was at an X-Games type on/off-road race thing. Apparently he has been winning it for several years now.

    He actually has skills - I just think that he was always trying to prove himself to be a douch to the detriment to his career. He has been been quite good in Global RallyCross driving for Andretti - I think he has been champion 2 or 3 times.

    He had 4 Wins in ARCA, 4 more than Danica

    I sort of wish I had taken up racing when I was younger. I've long thought dying while having sex would be the best way to go. But dying while racing would be a close second :):):)

    I dunno. You're to busy trying to get control back to think about life or death. When I rolled at 120 or so, it was just a jumble of sights and sounds. Once the car quit bouncing and the safety crew was prying the car open, I had a feeling of "What the H.....?"
