Danica Patrick wins Daytona 500 pole position

Message par RaySinKa le Jeu Fév 21, 2013 12:18 pm



For the first time, a woman will start in pole position at Nascar's most prestigious race, the Daytona 500.

Danica Patrick, 30, qualified on the pole for the season's opening race next Sunday after completing a lap at 196.434mph (316.13km/h).

Patrick will start, in her No 10 Chevrolet, alongside four-time Nascar Cup champion Jeff Gordon, who qualified in second place.

The rest of the field will be set in two qualifying races on Thursday.

Montoya hasn't done much in NASCAR anyway.
You probably know who I want to win the 500..... Razz
But, yeah, great job by Danica.
You know, I was going to start this thread, but you beat me, Ray.

He doesn't have the car to do it.

He has the car, just not the talent.
Ambrose from the V8 Supercars beats Montoya on the road courses, which NASCAR should add more of.
Ambrose has 2 wins, both at the Watkins Glen road course, in 2011 and 2012.

You don't need talent to make good times in qualifying on Superspeedway's. It's basically full throttle the whole lap.
Besides, the Daytona pole is useless.

And no Ambrose didn't beat Montoya on road courses. Montoya has 2 victories too, at Sonoma and at the Glen (after a fierce battle with Ambrose). They are the two best drivers on road courses of NASCAR.
Montoya doesn't have the car, it's obvious EGR cars are struggling since the excellent 2009 & 2010 seasons. Montoya did the chase and competed for the championship in 2009, Ambrose has never been close to do that. Hopefully the switch to Hendrick engines will help him to perform better.

Ambrose should have 3 wins but he gave one away at Infineon in '09, I think

'10, but it was his own fault. Like Montoya not winning Indianapolis for speeding.

Ambrose comes from Aussie V8 Super Cars, which is probably more relevant to NASCAR than F1 is!!
