    Richard Petty needs to pull his head out. Women haven't had the same opportunities to become race car drivers. I do think there win be a top level Nascar woman driver someday.

    Danica finished top 10 again in the Indy 500.

    She would have finished top 5 again, but got screwed when she pitted and then the caution went up. That cost her about 3 or 4 spots and allowed others to pit without losing too much time.

    Plus, she was racing in a slower car than most others in the race. Her car topped out at 217 mph, while the others could push theirs to 220 mph.

    3 or 4 extra mph over the course of the race can add up to a 20 second differential. She ended up about 18 seconds behind the winner.
