    We all like to rip on Danica but I think we can all agree that she has been great for NASCAR. She's probably the first ever woman driver to come in with tons of hype and even some results to show for. Yeah she's been really disappointing, but she has shown flashes of brilliance (2014 at Kansas and Atlanta specifically). She could definitely pave the way for more talented women to make their way into the sport

    Well we have to be aware of how she got into the sport in the first place. Indycar we can say she worked up through to the top, but that is all she had was hype. Sponsors and teams willing to give her big breaks only because she didn't screw so bad that it ruined her reputation. NASCAR she flew to the top(helped with her Indycar skill) but she was really just handed big rides with a big sponsor to back her. She might not be that great of driver but definitely far from the worse. You know she is far from decent when Kasey Kahne(the worst driver of team that has the same equipment) did better than her. She brought good publicity to the sport initially but her gimmick, or shine, has worn out and she has become yet another NASCAR meme.

    See the thing is that even if she's struggling and they hype has worn off, she's still as big as ever. I think the fact that Danica doesn't get super ridiculous amounts of TV coverage is actually a good thing, because she's no longer being treated as the woman in NASCAR, she's being treated as just another driver. I don't want Danica to get special treatment because of who she is. Yeah, she used her name and sponsors to get to the top, but her being at the top is a good thing for NASCAR. She puts fans in the stands and shows that anybody can make it now

    Lots of racing (NASCAR and ARCA) dominoes falling the past few days. Will expect all four series will be clearer in the next couple of weeks.

    Joe Gibbs Racing's website is showing Matt Tifft in the #18, Daniel Suarez in the #19, and Erik Jones in the #20 for the XFINITY Series race at Daytona. I'm really hoping that's an oversight and it's just the line-up from Homestead since Tifft in the #18 would mean Kyle in the #19 or #20 for his races which - you know - would suck considering I *just* updated the XFINITY gear last year from #54 to #18.. sigh. LOL.

    I decided to try and cook myself lunch today. I'm very bad at cooking, as my meals have been given a 0/10 by my girlfriend, my mom and my cousin. That was just me trying to cook soup, and today I decided I wanted to try and cook pesto chicken. I quickly went out to a bodega and bought chicken and I already had pesto sauce at home. I never baked chicken before, so I was paranoid I would get salmonella (even though that would only happen if I touched the chicken) and I was also afraid I would just waste a lot of time for nothing.

    So I made the chicken. I tried a bite. It tasted really good! I was proud of myself. I decided to go refill my water bottle before eating the rest of it, because I got caught with no bev. I returned to my meal and my cat was licking it.

    There goes that I guess.

    r/Nascar summed up in one picture (my comment was to an Edwards fan who just got his Edwards 2017 gear today, which he ordered the day before Edwards announced his departure):

    Debatable, Reddit is overwhelmingly left-leaning. Even on the NASCAR subreddit.

    Drank the NOS Rowdy this morning, it's actually really good.


    The only thing related to KB that's good.
