Re: “Danica Patrick hasn't received the same patience afforded to other NASCAR drivers entering the sport

Danica,se Wendell Scott (only African American NASCAR driver) next time you complain.He raced when blacks were still being lynched,was threatened with bodily harm by his racist competitors,couldn't eat at the racetracks,having to go to the black parts of towns in which he raced,was NEVER sponsored by racist companies,not even being given tires,leading to his perpetual underfunding,and when he won the Turkey Day 200 at Jacksonville Dec.1,1963,Buck Baker,the runnerup,was announced the winner so Scott would not kiss the buxom blonde queen;
Scott was declared the winner next day,but was not given the trophy-or at least his family wasn't awarded the trophy;Scott died in 1990-until 2010FORTY-SEVEN YEARS AFTER THE VICTORY.A bit of perspective for you other posters.

Scott,is Derrike Cope an attractive woman?(He's an ugly old dude.) Still,Patrick,whom I picked to win a race in 2017,will have to improve immeasurably or her ride may disappear by 2018.

Re: “Danica Patrick hasn't received the same patience afforded to other NASCAR drivers entering the sport

Why is Patrick getting such flack when nobody cares that Derrike Cope,who hasn't won a race since the NINETEEN-NINETY (the week my father died,incidentally) Daytona 500 is allowed to take a valuable ride from another prospective driver?(Darrell Wallace,for example.)
Speaking of bigotry,JUST WAIT until an African American NASCAR driver (the second in its nearly 70-year history) comes.I'll bet,if (s)he wins a race,they'll have to leave the racetrack under police protection after the necks threaten him or her with lynching,and some of those Bubba drivers will do their utmost to wreck him or her,even costing themselves a victory.
NASCAR fans have changed VERY LITTLE in terms of acceptance of "the other" since its 1949 inception.

I love how Charlotteans blame outsiders for conservatism. Charlotte ain't LIBERAL!
