I think she was definitely in line for a top 20 and with a few breaks much more. Ricky had nothing for her until Allgaier decided to become a bowling pin out there...

Over the first year of their Sprint Cup career plus two races this year, Ricky seems to catch every break while Danica gets caught in every thing possible and always ends up with the most damage. Looking at that loop data...Ricky ends up 18th (highest position all race was 17th) and his average running position was 25th.  So he ends up 7 spots better than his average running position in the race while Danica ends up 6 positions worse than her average running position (which was affected by running 1/2 the race damaged). Sometimes it just doesn't seem fair. 

But I like her thought process...maybe they are saving all their luck up for one awesome day. :) Although, she is due for a few years of breaks...

Yesterday's loop data stats, good to see Danica at +20 in pass differential (+6 yesterday) so far through the first two races and looking at the top 20, she was ahead of Casey Mears (14th) and Ricky (18th) at the midway point of the race, plus just two spots behind Kahne (got a top 15) and 4 behind Bowyer (got a top 20).

Had she not gotten caught up with Allgaier, she gets a top 20 most likely and perhaps a top 15. I still wish Gibson decided to go for track position though on the lap 164 pit stop w/2 tires and give her a shot at being inside the top 20/racing with more trustworthy drivers and not putting her in a situation to deal with the guys in the back who treat every restart like it's a green-white-checkered, even with 4 tires.

After all, no brains trumps four tires every time

Please, Lisa, don't do that thing with the pencil you were talking about.  You gotta find some more outward-thrusting actions to express your dismay and anger.

You know what else got overlooked because of Kevin's win? Kevin's win. The mainstream articles on my end are all about cheering on Junior for coming in second. The lack of logic makes me want to jam a pencil into my eye socket.
LOL @DavidWilliams, I usually last longer than this into the season before this kind of thing drives me nuts. I think I will be keeping the wine store up the street in business.

The positive though is that it proves how pigheaded some folks are. Pigheaded means they overlook things that Danica and her crew may be able to utilize. The 10 team has shown speed right off the bat and like Tony Gibson said, their day will come.

They're too busing musing over SHR's finishes through the first 2 races, even with Harvick's win
