10:17 AM ET 01.31 | Tommy Baldwin Racing will get a boost this season, entering into a partnership with championship-winning Stewart-Haas Racing to field the No. 10 GoDaddy.com Chevrolet for Danica Patrick's NASCAR Sprint Cup races in 2012. The alliance will guarantee Patrick a starting spot in her Sprint Cup debut in the season-opening Daytona 500. TBR will transfer the points from the No. 36 car it fielded in 2011, where it finished the season 33rd in points, to the No. 10 Tommy Baldwin Racing Chevrolet for Patrick. In the 26 races where Patrick is not scheduled to drive, David Reutimann will pilot the No. 10 car.

Wonder if Danica thinks Tommy is dreamy. God knows I do.

Today is Tuesday, not Saturday. A new story, looks like Danica is the story line for this season.

Hot damn, this posting means the Wizards are due their third win any day now. And I think you're right, JK, we should expect to hear a lot about Danica,

TBR driver David Reutimann will run 26 races, Patrick does not in the #10 to keep it in the Top35 ;-)

,,, While Patrick will drive Stewart ~ Haas cars purchased from Hendrick Motorsports in her 10 races, ... Reutimann will get Baldwin's cars in his outings.

... TBR will reportedly receive technical and pit crew support from SHR as part of the deal.

Wizards have won 4 now.. so the Danica thread covers it.. rather look at Danica than some of those other ugly mugs they post.. such as Mike Helton

We all know what sells in sports, and sadly it ain't what is happening on the field/track/stadium!

The last three comments have destroyed my faith in Nascar and any sport. Say it ain't so guys. I always thought competition was the key and now you're telling me it's sex. Oh, Heaven help us.

Me too, me too. It must have been naughty because we haven't had any deletions in quite a while. Every one has been behaving and the spam seems to have fizzled out also.
