I agree, if the women can keep up - more power to them.
I'm not a big fan of Shawna Robinson. She tried to make it in Winston Cup last year and quite frankly couldn't keep up. She MADE it about being a woman in the series, not that she just wasn't good enough to make it. In every interview I saw, she came off as pretty close to a femi-nazi. That team, BAM Racing - owned by Ms. Beth Ann Morgenthau - is still going, with a different driver, Ken Schrader, and is doing much better this year. It wasn't about Shawna being a woman, she just wasn't ready for Cup.
