    You mean there is actually a racing division where a girl actually wins. Is this like kids sports where everybody get a trophy and a chance to play? Not like a real sport like football or Indy car?

    Liked! :thumbsup:

    I like the way she drives in that video. She's in control enough to make her look slow even though she's passing people. Lots of skill and a well set-up truck!

    :devil: I figured I'd let the comment stand so the other members could see what kind of a person he is.

    Criticizing an up-and-coming racer with a winning record simply because she's a woman speaks for itself. That the poster is criticizing any racer while running a drop-bracket lift adds to the hilarity.


    (not hating on drop-brackets, btw -- they're just not for racing)

    WOW that one blew up quick. i wasn't actually trying to say anything bad about her. I was actually trying to make a dig at Danica patrick thats why i said INDY Car (seemed like a good opportunity, you dont get too many). besides i figured someone would have thrown out Ashley Force or some of the woman NHRA drivers throughout the years. I guess since neither of those race tacomas nobody here knows about them. hopefully when she continues her racing and makes it to the higher classes she continues her success and doesn't turn out to be a Danica who only still has a ride because shes cute (unlike some of the other women to have graced IRL and not kept their ride becuase they couldnt cut it AND didnt have the looks)
