    Anyone else seeing the rumors? She could be the high profile driver that Toyota is dreaming about getting for next year. It wouldn't surprise me to see her in a 'Yota.

    Yup I heard it last night. Her and Montoya, and few other F1 drivers are making the move to NASCAR.

    Personally I hate to see the foreign drivers, teams, and cars, making their way into a mostly American tradition.

    Toyota/NASCAR YUK!!!!

    Toyota is just as American as GM these days. Whats American a Toyota designed and built in the US or a Chevy built in Korea?

    Heard about it on the radio a half a dozen times today. Would be a good addition to Nascar. Just think about the fan support from the women, and the revenue. The race series she is in now is no joke.

    I may just watch her go round, and round, and round. Give me a reason to watch some TV with the Mrs. LMAO She loves the sport, I cant stand it.

    You think she will notice why I am watching it with her?? LMAO

    Man, that chick is hot. I hope she does come to nascar. Thats a sport that NEEDS SOME DIVERSITY. Nascar is just so boring though. I wish the cars had open wheels like in F1!

    I wish the track was a big figure 8. Now, that would be fun to watch.

    Yes Matt, she will notice WHY you are watching it. No, she won't care cause she is too busy lookin at Jr or as my wife calls him "Easy on the Eyes"

    Danica would be a good addition to Nascar, but she will take her hits just like anyone else. If she has the patience and determination to get through the growing pains, she should be very sucessful.

    Even Danica can't make me route for toyota, they just don't belong in a real auto sport!

    Danica will be the first woman to attempt the Cup ranks since Shawna Robinson tried back a few years ago. Shawna rarely got in the top 30 while driving for BAM Racing, ( the #49 car ). Spnonser problems forced her out of the sport.

    I'm with you Teas I just can't sit and watch people drive in circles for hours. I've been telling my friends for years that if they would start half of the cars going the opposite direction it would be worth watching.

    My other remedy for breaking up the monotony of watching people turn left all day is to give each driver a liter of Jack Daniels to drink on throughout the race that must be empty at the end in order for them to collect any money.

    Now that would be entertainment!!!!
