As a World of Outlaws fan I care less. Now for those "Antis" out there, a female kicker will be trying out for the NFL.

The times are changing gotta stay loose.

As NASCAR attendance and TV ratings have been down for a while, Danica accomplished what NASCAR wanted her to do. I saw today that the TV ratings were up 30% over last year and this year's Daytona 500 had the highest TV ratings since 2006.

The TV lawyer has gotten some of the injured fans signed up and will be doing what he can to ruin the sport. He will sue everybody he can think of and that will be a big deal for the sport. This guy's firm is brutal and folks are afraid of his methods. He is the one who got the veterans absentee ballots thrown out in the Bush/Gore 2000 becasue they had no postal stamp cancellation (from oversea military bases) even though they arrived prior to election and obviously had been mailed prior to the election. I believe the recession has hit NASCAR and it's owners very hard and these lawsuits are going to be a big blow. I think it is going to be hard to prove who did what that caused the crash and a lot of teams will be sued. Sad to see.

Good grief...

I s'pose when the Viewing Public gets tired of the exotic presence of an actual Female Woman behind the wheel of an overengineered Toy, sponsors will have to look elsewhere for better ratings.

Stay tuned...

Next up: A trained ape!

As opposed to the non-female non-woman operators?

Seems like she did well being totally on her own, didn't see anyone (other than a great pit crew) helping her out and someone on her team could have discussed how to actually win the thing from third place in that last turn.

This isn't NASCAR'S first BBQ and I'm sure they have enough representation to tackle any suit against them. If you read the back of your ticket it pretty much warns you of all the dangers and you are at your own risk, they have been putting that on tickets for Sporting Events , Concerts , Etc for years.

I was at a gathering of a large international group and the topic of disclaimers or waivers came up. A litigation lawyer claimed that if you put out a disclaimer or get waivers signed you are actually working for the plaintiffs lawyer. By putting this out there he claimed you are allowing that there is an inherent danger and thereby incriminating yourself. YMMV.

Excellent job of linking so many disparate topics . . .
- Lawyers
- Veterans
- NASCAR
- Bush/Gore election
- recession

Now if you can add the Grassy Knoll and Elvis, you'll have it all covered.

Thank you, but you forgot to mention that they are all true and relevant to the accident. I assumed most would understand, but if you wish, PM me and I will explain whichever one you don't get. No sense in bothering everybody with them.

It's all about money and nothing else. NASCAR has been loosing interest for years and they will do anything to get it back. It wouldn't suprise a bit to find out that a lot of the racing and outcomes are rigged. Didn't some 18 year old kid win Daytona last year? I mean, come on, how tough can it be?

Cheers,

George

After watching the last lap too many times I conclude:

She never went for the win.

She did not push anybody else to the win and she could have.

I doubt anybody will ever push her for the win (see above) unless it's tubby tony.

She had the winning car.

While I applaud her for keeping her car in one piece and running toward the front for almost all of the race, I couldn't understand why her spotter didn't tell her about the freight train that was coming up the inside line in time for her to drop down and get pushed to the front. One of those things that make you go hmmmmm, I guess.

I wonder did they want to be a one hit wonder (ie win this year) or stay close to the lead and then push for the win next year. If I were a conspiracy theorist I would opine that they (NASCAR) were going for a two year rating increase.

My wife queried why I was watching the race as she had never known me to watch auto racing and when I answered I was looking for something other than the racing she thought I was nuts to waste the three or so hours almost paying attention to the screen.

I guess I will have to wait until next year to see the next installment of how the NASCAR spins.
