Danica Patrick Downshifts from Full-Time NASCAR

With tears in her eyes, Danica Patrick emotionally confirmed to media on Friday afternoon she would be stepping away from full-time racing competition following Sunday's Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. "My sister said I wasn't supposed to get emotional," she said, wiping tears from her eyes, as her sister and parents watched from the back of the room. "I said I wouldn't. But I'm grateful for all the opportunities." Dressed in a white blouse and black jeans, the 35-year-old Patrick declared her intentions to transition after a historical six-year full-time career in NASCAR preceded by a headline-making seven-year full-time stint racing in the IndyCar series.

I'm heartbroken. I LOVED Her racing.

Time for a CTE checkup. She took some hard hits.

I'd do her.

She wouldn't do you

Met her once.

Tiny.....and I'd do her.

Yeah, I'd do her too but I'd probably bore the ---- out of her.

But it seems wrong to even say that now.

Did she ever win a NASCAR race?

Did the Cardinals ever win the super bowl. Phoenix suns got any rings?

IndyCar is cooler than NASCAR.

If there is only one girl at the party, she is the prettiest girl at the party, regardless of what she looks like.

She's a professional car racer, I respect her accomplishments. She's also, incidentally, hot! She'd consider me to be a dirty old lady, but I can look.

"Did she ever win a NASCAR race?"

To the best of my knowledge, No. She did take the pole at Daytona once, though.

Her transition from Indy to NASCAR never really caught on. I always thought her only purpose at NASCAR was as a tax write-off for Stewart-Hass.

Jesus you're dense.

I've seen her drive indycar and nascar and she's damn fine, but like all women
racers, she just won't get in your face and force a situation. same thing was true about Junior to a lesser extent. not like the Busch boys or Stewart or Jeff Gordon. Exact opposite of someone like Robbie Gordon who was a great driver but was always a wreck waiting to happen. women have always seemed to me to have too much common sense to be successful racing against men.
Michelle Mouton being the exception.

Open letter

Dear Danica,

Hi, I'm Bruceaz. I stink of gin and cigarettes and probably have a little egg yolk in my beard from breakfast. I'd love to spend some quality time with you. Truthhurts will vouch for me. And you can take my rusty old Ford Pinto for a spin.

Martin Truex just won the 2017 NASCAR championship and he did it with style.
