12:16 PM ET 05.31 | Though driver Danica Patrick has adamantly denied claims that she has made the decision to move to NASCAR next season, she has at least one person hoping she hops over to stock cars full-time. GoDaddy owner Bob Parsons recently explained his wishes for Patrick's future. "Do I know for sure that she's doing it? No," Parsons said. "Am I happy if she would do it? I would be thrilled. Would I move with her? If I can stroke the check I will." Patrick finished 10th at last Sunday's Indy 500.

Parsons is looking at a great marketing opportunity for his company if she does go full time next year. I think Nascar is ready for her, I'm not so sure she is ready for the rigors of full time Nationwide racing. Hopefully she will be a fast learner.

At least one of those 23 individuals was a woman.

Danica is a gimmick. She isn't even a good racer.

It definitely would be different than racing than racing in that foreign series.

She finished ahead of 23 other drivers, 22 men. The question is, did she outdrive them, or, as seems to be her MO in high finishes, did her engineers out think the other teams? Once she actually starts outracing these guys, and not our gas mileageing them, we'll talk.

We disagree more than we agree but on this I agree 100%. A win is a win is a win is a win.
