Looks like another open-wheeled racer comes to NASCAR. I can't wait to see Ashley Judd at the races. It seems to me the Indy League has become the minor league racing circut of NASCAR. Thoughts?

Indy racing hasn't mattered since CART and the IRL split.

I don't think it is whether it matters, but the fact is there is a ton more money in NASCAR right now. Dario made $4 million while winning the Indy 500 and the IndyCar title. Jimmie Johnson won over $15 million while winning the Nextel Cup last year.

If the numbers were reversed or even closer to equal there wouldn't be such an exodus from IndyCar.

At this point the question is when does Danica Patrick make the jump and begin the inevitable media crush?

She'll finally win a race, then move to NASCAR since she's "done everything she's wanted to accomplish in IRL." Maybe she and Dale Jr. can join Team Media Hype.

That's some hatin' for ya.

Danica's improving. She had her best season this year, by far, and it WAS her first season on a top-flight IRL team. She outpaced Buddy Rice in their last year at RLR together. She was the fastest Panoz at Indy in '06. She's gotten into the Fast Six in qualifying a couple of times, blew away Marco the Andretti Wonderboy this season and would have won at Michigan (IMO) if not for her ill-fated cut tire.

In a lot of ways the worst thing to ever happen to her was Indy '05. She's progressed like you would expect a good driver to, and I'm giving her one more year to win (since last year she had some growing pains with AGR like any driver would and then they clearly were focused on Dario winning the title at the end of the year) before I think throwing her under the bus or saying she is an overhyped letdown is warranted.

Also since Junior started driving Cup cars only a handful of drivers have more wins, and the only owners who have won championships are Hendrick, Roush, and Gibbs, none of whom employ Junior, until next year.

I wish these debuts wouldn't happen now. I mean, Villeneuve's supposed to race his first Nextel Cup race at TALLADEGA. During the Chase for the Cup.

Is he nuts?

Danica draws so much money off the track that she may stick with the IRL strictly because of the shorter schedule. I believe she even mentioned the schedule as a drawback to NASCAR when she was seeking out a new contract last year.

I was expecting a lot less than I got tonight from this show. There were some pretty entertaining moments, and even the main event going down the way it did (which pissed me off to no end)
