Lately there has been a lot talk that Danica patrick would come to NASCAR, so much theat former Indy car driver Juan Pablo Montoya said that Danica's potential move would be possible but very difficult.

Last night while surfing the internet for some good NASCAR articles, I came across a title that intrigued me. It said:  "Danica taking Junior's place at Hendrick?" So like any Dale Jr. fan I read it.

The author was talking about the possibly of Danica Patrick moving to Nascar and taking Dale Jr.'s position at HMS.

He went on to say how Earnhardt could move his now Nationwide team to Sprint cup and drive for himself.

As we know Dale Jr.'s father had a cup team, but never drove for it. He believed that it was easier to drive for someone else instead of yourself. Makes sense, because then you wouldn't worry about paying for a wrecked race car.

But anyway back to my rant. It would make no sense for Hendrick to give Junior the boot. Why would you get rid of the most popular driver? And even more importantly why fire him for a driver with zero experience in stock cars?

Apparently he thought it would be a good article or maybe he just needed more reads. But he's writing about something that would never happen for the fact the Rick Hendrick can't afford to buy Dale Jr. out of his five year contract and dumping the sport's six time most popular driver is very stupid.

We saw what happened to Teresa Earnhardt, co owner of EGR.

Fans hate her for that one move, letting Junior go.

It would make more sense for Earnhardt to move his team to Cup, give Brad Keselowski a ride, and then give Danica a ride, rather than Dale Jr. driving his own car and breaking a contract with HMS.

Not that I don't want Danica in NASCAR; I believe if she does come then I'll pull for her, Junior, and Brad Keselowski. I just wanted to clear up the rumor that  Danica will probably not be driving for HMS any time soon. Who knows, she may never even come to NASCAR.
