Danica Patrick makes history, wins Daytona 500 pole
« on: February 17, 2013, 04:43:07 PM »
Danica Patrick makes history, wins Daytona 500 pole.  If everything but the last word was true then this would be a great accomplishment.  Still, Danica has broken a barrier in NASCAR becoming the first driver ever to win the pole at NASCAR's top race.  How do you think she will finish in the actual race next weekend?

I think she has a shot but will she be in the big one.

Ouch.

I hope she wins. In reality I think she finishes in the top 10.

It could go either way. She could win the race, finish in the top 10, finish lower than 10th, or even wreck. But she definitely has the talent to win the 500.

Darrell Waltrip put it best the other day.  Major accomplishments in NASCAR are to win Daytona, Darlington, Indy, Bristol, AND the pole for the Daytona 500.  No easy task.  I think if she finishes on the lead lap and in the top 15 it is a major success.

  • pandoval172: love it when somebody comes along at 45 hours and bids up all your FAs
    July 20, 2016, 10:57:55 AM
  • pandoval172: also bids up people who are well past 48 hours

    July 20, 2016, 11:06:52 AM
  • snugerud: i actually dont mind the last minute bid up.  it creates some bad blood and rivalries.
    July 20, 2016, 11:16:15 AM
  • snugerud: there can be a strategy to it as well.  dont get me wrong , i hate when it happens to me....
    July 20, 2016, 11:17:21 AM
  • pandoval172: i don't think it was intetnional... this owner apparently just not paying attention b/c he bid up at least one guy who was already won
    July 20, 2016, 11:26:30 AM
  • pandoval172: but yeah snugerud i agree... i don't mind it eitehr when i'm not the one it's happening to :-)
    July 20, 2016, 11:28:25 AM
  • snugerud: maybe just late getting to the party.

  • snugerud: one of my leagues the GMs are absolute dicks in FA  ,,,, i love it.
    July 20, 2016, 11:40:13 AM
  • snugerud: they wait till 5 mins before a bid ends and then throw one on there
    July 20, 2016, 11:42:15 AM
  • pandoval172: to me that's just obnoxious.... not really supposed to be a part of the game
    July 20, 2016, 11:42:39 AM
  • snugerud: or bid you up intentionally with no desire to actually win the bid
    July 20, 2016, 11:42:42 AM
  • snugerud: we are all friends and know eash other in that league so its all good we understand its gamemanship
    July 20, 2016, 11:43:37 AM
  • snugerud: most of the guys i play hockey with so its fun in the dressing room
    July 20, 2016, 11:44:48 AM
  • pandoval172: yeah that's fine if ppl are all down with it. personally, i play fantasy baseball b/c i like baseball, not because i like weekslong message-board wars where the goal is to irritate other people and prevent anyone from signing an FA
    July 20, 2016, 11:45:19 AM
  • pandoval172: but yeah if it's a friends' league that's a little different
