I can, she's a cash cow through advertisements and how much commentary is given to her.

I tell you what. I will make you a bet. $50 says she will either renew her Cup contract with Haas, or sign with a new Cup team for 2016. Wanna take the bet?

I wouldn't be suprised to see her in a Haas F1 seat for 2016 , even if it was the reserve driver spot

It may be a reserve spot, but like I said, I seriously Haas will take her out of full season Cup. I mean I am not stupid here. While I feel that she is a talented driver, who will find herself being competitive soon enough, I am not blind to the fact that she brings SERIOUS money to not only Stewart-Haas, but to Nascar. She is the first woman to be truly accepted by the majority of the drivers. (I won't even get in to the hilarious article about what Mr. No-talent Kyle Petty said a while back)

So yeah, I can see her doing a provisional driver when she doesn't have a Cup commitment, and probably doing the double in 2016 like Kurt did this year.

Well unless you plan to wait until 2016 to get the electrical upgrade, I don't see how that will work. lol.

I'm guessing if she renews her contract it will be toward the end of the 2015 season, but I was just playing around, I'm not too much of a betting man

I'm going to speculate that the Haas F1 team would like to generate money off her media attention as well , basically what it says in the article I posted .

She actually had "success" in Indy. I could see her leaving in the next couple years if she keeps goin the way she is in NASCAR. After a while of suckitude you've gotta think she'd wanna go to where she might be able to compete.

Oz, I agree with you that she would bring some great marketing money to F1, but I think she will draw more money in Cup. Granted I don't follow F1 racing, so I can't say that for a fact, but I know that she generates a lot of fan base and money where she is. I would think (in my opinion) "why take her out of what you KNOW brings in money, to put her where you DON'T know she will bring in the money." Again my opinion.

The Haas F1 team is going to get an experienced F1 driver and their 2nd driver is going to be an American , I think it's either her or current Caterham reserve driver Alexander Rossi
