Nascar "sucks"..........

...this race just killed it for me with Nascar, you know when
Danica Patrick is running a strong third place and then a
herd of drivers pass her up, it was a setup from the get go;
there was no intention of her running in a legit race, I lost
all faith in Nascar......I hope they go bust.........

I think she should have made a move to the inside like Earnhardt did, she would have finished much better. Others around her made moves and she stayed in line and got shuffled back a bit, still had a good race tho.

They should run 10 races of 3 cars for 5 laps each race. Then the semi-final race of the day could be 10 cars for 10 laps. Then, the final race would be the top 5 finishers of the day for 10 laps.

Todays race was 2 laps with 20 cars.

Why do they call it "common sense" when, in fact, it has become so uncommon?

That's my opinion, it outta be your's.

That's not a rigged race that's a driver that's doesn't know where to put hwr car. If you think for one second Nascar didn't want her to win you're crazy

It's the "Daytona 500", not the "Danica 500".

Yeah, she tried to play it safe at the end, and got left in the dust.

She and her team still ran a very respectable race. She'll be back, and will get another chance.

Almost ZERO passing. Only time things changed was during the pit stops, a wreck, or a car dropped out.

ALMS is much better.

I don't like the new Gen6 car!! They are going to have to make some major changes or they will lose all of their fanbase!! Freight-training all day long in a single file line is lousy!! Those few laps towards the end where they were running as much as 3-wide was the most exciting part of the race!!! By the way, Danica is outta her league running with those boys when they're actually racing and she and they proved it when she quickly went backwards trying to make a move!!

She went backwards because she DIDN't make a move. She played it safe and got left out. She ran a good race though. I think her goal was to finish the race. She had the car and the speed, just not the balls.

I think she did well. Her 10th Sprint cup start. She didn't wreck and finished the race. She can drive. I do wish she would have pulled out of the line in the last 10 laps with someone.

She did GREAT and I hope she wins at least one race this season!! I've been a Johnson fan for awhile, but I'm sick of him winning all the time and would love to see Jr. win some races! Thought he might get one yesterday!! They are going to have to change up the aero package on those cars so they are more competitive and don't spend all day in a single-file line!!!
