Danica is doing the dozen – NASCAR races, that is. The only question now is which dozen she'll be doing. While she's slated to run a pre-season ARCA race on February 6, it isn't clear whether she'll do the season opener at Daytona the following week. The concern is that she might not be ready for one of the most challenging races in the series for her first outing, and the decision will be made after the ARCA race.

Automobile says Danica will be focused on IndyCar from February to June and is expected to sit out most of the 15 races that follow Daytona, through June 26. With 35 races in total this year, Danica will have room to fit those 12 in among the 19 remaining, beginning with Daytona again on July 2.

However, according to an Associated Press report Danica's 12 races have already been selected, and they'll include marquee tracks like Dover, Charlotte, New Hampshire, and Homestead-Miami. Danica said she wants "quality seat time at a variety of facilities," which could be a way of saying she wants to properly prep herself for campaigning in 2011.

      I hate her and everything she stands for. She gets rides based solely on her mediocre at best looks, and takes those rides from more deserving better male drivers. If she dies in a massive 1st lap crash the World will be a better place. I had hoped for a Christmas morning house fire, but that didn't happen.

        Danica does fairly well in F1 better than alot of the guys. If the only reason we see so much of her is because shes a female then why don't we see more of beauty queen Milka Duno ?

        I speak what I think, and I hate her with a passion. She is at best a 5 on any hotness scale as long as you don't live in your parent's basement. Lucking into a win, or hell just not wrecking out does not make her deserving of everything she's been handed. Me wishing her dead won't make it happen, but I definitely won't lose any sleep if it does.

        She doesn't, and never has raced in F1.

        [OFF-TOPIC]Isn't lust one of the seven capital sins?

        And what about the Muslim/Buddhist/Atheist part of the nation?[/OFF-TOPIC]

        Back to topic...this should bring even more ad revenue to NASCAR (not like it needs it).

      [sarcasm]Yeah - roughly 1 out of every 5 people, (~20%) sounds terribly insignificant to me. [/sarcasm]

      Why is this slightly white trash looking woman considered hot? Oh wait.. that's why she's going into Nascar..

      Great PR for herself and for NASCAR which has publicly been losing their high ratings over the last few years. If the France Family is smart they'll be pushing to have her included in Daytona for the added press that will follow her. All she needs to do is lead just one lap and the France Family will have a nice lil sport news blip all over the country.

        NASCAR lost a lot of fans when they agreed to pay Jesse Jackson a fee because there are no black drivers.

      How is Daytona more challenging than any other NASCAR track? Drive in a counterclockwise circle.

      Smart-assed joke aside, seriously, what makes Daytona more challenging?
        • 5 Years Ago
        the issue is the track is so big and they run restricter plates to drop the cars down a couple hundred hp. so because of the low power and such a big track the cars must run as a pack to keep draft (lets them go fast) with cars all around you (inches away) any mistake could be catastrophic to themselves and others.

        think of the concentration that drifting partners have when they are trying to get as close as possible to the other driver while maintaing a drift. well thats how the daytona is for 500 miles.

        look past the obvious of it being a oval track so it must be easy. it may be easy to do by yourself but when there are 42 other cars packed around you that changes things a bit.
        • 5 Years Ago
        One the other tracks even if you don't know what you are doing, you can be by yourself and cause others no problems.

        If she is in the middle of the draft at Daytona and slips up a bit, she wipes out the entire field.
