Well, lets just get something going here. Why was Danica Patrick taking in a tour of the Stewart-Hass Racing facility?

Why is there pink and lavender paint in the shop? And a smell of potpourri? OK, I’m just making those last two up, but she was visiting the shop on Monday.

Patrick was introduced to Ryan Newman and many other notables in the garage, but I understand Tony was testing so he could not be there.

This is all very interesting.

The IndyCar Series' season will be over in October, which leaves some time for her to run a few Nationwide Series or Cup Series races in 2009.

Cup races? That would be a stretch,as the boys won’t put up with that in the middle of the Chase. Remember them crying about all the open-wheel guys in 2007?

I’m telling you my dear folks, get your pink hats ready! I said a few months ago that there is a lot of chatter in the weeds—think of the web warning signal.

The storm is a coming folks. It is just a matter of where it’s going to hit.

Remember, al asfyouknow told you.

I can’t wait to see the outfit she wears to the track—before the race, of course.

I just love that girl, and I can't wait for her NASCAR days.

Where can I comment?
