10:18 AM ET 05.27 | Danica Patrick wants to compete in her eighth Indianapolis 500. Her Sprint Cup team owner, Tony Stewart, said before the season he hoped Patrick would be ready to ascend from the Nationwide Series to Sprint Cup full time in 2013. With Patrick unlikely to skip a Cup race as a full-time driver, especially NASCAR's Coca-Cola-sponsored Memorial Day event and especially after recently joining the brand's line of endorsers, there is now the highly intriguing possibility of one of sports' most recognizable figures resurrecting the fabled but fallow Indianapolis-Concord "double."

Can she do it??.. yes.. will she??.. no.. she's only a year removed from Indy-car.. she misses it.. give her a year in Nascar and she won't miss Indy as much.. but.. maybe the only way she could get a win is to rin the Indy 500.. there's hardly any competition over there

Like I give a crap. I watched the Nationwide race yesterday and I noticed that she was the only one who was jitterbugging in turn one. DON'T feed me this mess that she is as good as the home boys because it is a lie.

May 27, 2012  03:32 PM ET

Oh Yeah, who would watch the Indy instead Charlotte 600?

No one cares if you "give a crap" or not, to be bluntly honest. But, the last time I checked, she was 9th in the standings. That put her a head of many of your "home boys", who I guess are having just as hard a time as you knowing that a girl is better than they are.

Ashley Judd could probably give her a race for the money. She still looks good huggin' her winner hubby.

let me clarify that. if you're talking nationwide, the above stands.

if you're talking sprint cup, whitt is a start & park, so he obviously cant be doing better if he's not racing

THOUGHTS & PRAYERS FROM A GRATEFUL NATION..

''The American flag does not fly because the wind moves past it.. The American flag flies from the last breath of each, military member who has died protecting it.

Americans don't fight because they hate what's in front of them.. They fight because they love what's behind them.''

I saw Marcus Ambrose was really happy to see her entering the pits just as he was yesterday. Silly gal braked way too early and he just about Hershey Highwayed her....

Big day yesterday, 1,300 miles of racing. But the middle 500 was about as mundane as could be although I was rooting for Sato over Franchitti at the end, if only so we could avoid seeing his wife. Too bad Sato made his move a corner too early.

Kahne looked like the real deal yeaterday. I was disappointed to see 5 Time have to go a lap down but they did stuff it up.

You must have found the final 600 "non-mundane". I tend to agree with the empty seats... wasn't worth the price of admission.

Didn't cost me a nickel to record it and watch at my leisure.

I barely give Indy a glance anymore. They've killed that series in my opinion. Just cause they go 230 MPH doesn't make it good. And the cars are so fugly...
