I never said she'd win a cup. But I've got $20 that says she'll make the chase within 2 years of going full time.
The only problem with this bet is that she will hard pressed to find a full time ride when she isn't guaranteed a starting position in any given race. Even if she does happen to get the points to guarantee a starting position, I doubt she could build up enough points to get into the top 10 within 2 years of full time racing.
After these first few scheduled races, she would have had to battle with a couple dozen other cars for one of the 8 open spots each week. This is why Steward-Haas and Go Daddy wouldn't commit to a full season.
David Ruetimann will be driving the 10 car as soon as this Danica publicity stunt is over with. They know that he is the better bet to get the car into the race.
Much better showing for Danica for the start of this season. Won the Pole Position for Daytona 500, spent pretty much all day in the top 10, much of it in the top 5, led some laps, and finished 8th.
She may slowly be gaining some respect from the other drivers. It is usually tough to get other drivers to trust a newer driver enough to team up in drafting on a superspeedway but she teamed up with several top drivers and did well in some pretty tough situations.
She still gets far too much attention during the race but I guess that isn't surprising. She also isn't a top-tier driver at this point but overall a very solid day and overall good Daytona performance.
