Can the luck of the Irish help out Danica Patrick this weekend at Bristol? With the way her last two weeks have gone, I surely hope so. Photo Credit: GoDaddy.com She came off of Daytona with a burst of confidence and a top-10 finish but then it seemed like her luck went sour in Phoenix when she retired from the race thanks to a blown right front tire. Las Vegas, the sight of her 2011 4th place finish in the Nationwide Series, was looking like it could be a good track for Patrick but it seemed like her car had different ideas. Battling a loose racecar all weekend, you could see the frustration in her eyes as she climbed out of her car on pit lane after the race.

Danica just needs a bit more time

Stewart-Haas Racing and Danica Patrick have had two weeks of struggles following the race at Daytona International Speedway.

Danica Thrall Pictures, Thrall Much Hotter Than Patrick

Some people have a thing for Danica Patrick. I’m not one of them, but I don’t think there’s any debate over who is the hotter Danica. Danica Thrall is a British model.

Christmas Abbott – NASCAR’s Sexy Real Pioneer

Her name is Christmas Abbott – and ‘no’ that’s not a typographical error. It’s no secret that Danica Patrick occupies much of NASCAR’s publicity and headlines, perhaps a bit too much given the relation of publicity garnered to actual performance – in short, victories – but there’s another NASCAR participant who has captured the headlines as an even more improbable...
