Shock, Dis-belief, Sadness, Anger, Did I say Shocked…….

I just picked myself up off the floor in dis-belief. Get this, the rumor is Danica Patrick is asking for 8 million dollars to run 8 Nationwide races. That’s right 8 MILLION for 8 races, that’s 1 MILLION dollars to just start the race. That’s so absurd if it is true I’ll have to seriously think about turning in my NASCAR fan membership because that will mean they are just like the stick and ball athletes that are essentially robbing the fans. When these athletes ask for ridiculous salaries they know that ultimately the fans pay the price and they don’t care. They could careless if a family can go to a sporting event without risking the family car. But that’s another post another day.

Right now it’s just a rumor, I can’t believe it would be true. Danica would have to do a hell of alot more than drive a car to get 8 MILLION dollars. Many Nationwide teams don’t even spend 8 million to run the entire season.  

I’m not an IRL fan but I am a Danica Patrick fan, I’ve watched IRL races just to see how Danica runs. If this rumor ends up being fact Danica’s dead to me. (like it matters)

  1. It’s called negotiating

    Throw out a starting point number, see what the teams say when they make their offer and start hammering away.

  2. Great Blog ! Yeah i cant believe this story either its idiot prone Shes not worth it she is only a big star in indy because of marketing her racing skills are poor at best especially comparing her with Ashley Force Hood in the NHRA 8 mil for what anothr pretty face WE got to many of them now
