NASCAR- A mans sport?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Seeing this article made me wonder what you all think about women being in NASCAR. I personally don't have a problem with it as long as they can keep up with the guys, if not then they shouldn't be there.

Auto racing relies more on quick reflexes and spatial relationships, rather than upper body strength. Its been proven that women's abilities, in this area, are superior. Go for it, girls.

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.

I think they should stay in the stands where they belong!

Sure why not?

If the woman is there on merit alone and not for some other reason such as a promotional stunt, then let her drive. But at least be honest with themselves if they don't make it to the final race.
