But can she PARK?
Yea, I love this discussion, the roundy-rounders, F1 comparisons, rally drivers, etc, etc.. these are different animals here and I will explain it. First, F1, Nascar racecars are BASED on productions cars, they are heavy, have NO active aerodynamics, active suspension, no on board telementary or computers, are pushrod engines, not DOHC, and the limits go on and on, this is to put the race in the drivers hands literally, A major tech advantage does not exist in stockcars. Second, rally, automobile motorcross is exciting to watch, but do not run at near the stockcar speeds nor run in huge packs where the other cars dictate your strategy, no AWD, turbos, etc. Third, You can see all of the action on an oval track, not so on a road course. Fourth, Mansel and Montoya did NOT win any Nascar Cup race in their rookie years, It took Montoya 3 years to win his first Nascar race and Mansel never won a cup race in his life, therefore, nice try, If F1 drivers were so much better, they would dominate this sport, but they very rarely win any races here, even on the roadcourse races Nascar has twice a season, they are the same tracks but difficult to drive stock cars that the F1 elite cannot seem to master, Montoya, 6 years, 2 wins, that is 214 races in the easy roundy rounder series that aunt Lilly can master at will, How would these F1, rally, etc react if a woman were to make progress in their male dominated series? This is just great to see, and remember, on the track, they all weigh in at the same with the driver in the car, no advantage to smaller frame drivers, Just wanted to set the record straight....

I'm not into watching cars driving around in circles, but if she causes accidents while putting on make-up and talking on the cell phone, I am so there!
