Danica Patrick's 'Good Attitude' Brings Her A Better Finish!

Filed under: NASCARDanica Patrick

danica patrick pinkDanica Patrick is one impressive woman!

And not just because of how she handles success! Even in failure she's humble and positive! We guess you have to be in her sport- after all, someone has to lose the race!

But after moving up twenty positions to finish 12th overall, Danica said the race was "a nice reminder that I can drive a race car." She said:

"Sometimes you get a little down on yourself, and it's those days that help bring it back.

Being at Martinsville for the first time, we all expected to have a tough weekend and nobody really knew what to expect.

It's a good reminder that when you do go in open-minded and with a good attitude and you just keep trying and take what comes and stay positive, good things can happen."

We couldn't agree more! With the positive thinking part that is!

We don't understand most of the tech talk! Because if nothing else, this is a reminder that we can't drive a race car!

But you can find all Danica's car talk …AFTER THE JUMP!

IndyCar Driver Dan Wheldon Dies During Race

Filed under: Sad SadFitness

So tragic.

Indianapolis 500 race car driver and two-time champ Dan Wheldon died on Sunday after his car crashed during a huge 15-car accident at the Las Vegas Indy 300.

His car went airborne after hitting the fence during Lap 12 of the race. He was airlifted to a nearby hospital where he died.

The race was soon canceled, however racers did a five-lap turn as a salute to their fallen driver.

IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard released a statement about the incident:

"IndyCar is very sad to announce that Dan Wheldon has passed away from unsurvivable injuries. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family today."

Australian driver Ryan Briscoe described the scene:

"I've never seen anything like it. The debris we all had to drive through the lap later, it looked like a war scene from Terminator or something. I mean, there were just pieces of metal and car on fire in the middle of the track with no car attached to it and just debris everywhere … your first thoughts are hoping that no one is hurt, because there’s just stuff everywhere. Crazy."

Wheldon was 33.

So sad. Our thoughts are with his family during this difficult time.

Protesters Want Trump Out Of Indy 500 Race

Donald Trump Indy 500

Donald Trump, the esteemed real estate mogul and politician reality television star, was selected a month ago to appear as this year's celebrity pace car driver in the 100th annual Indianapolis 500. However, due to his recent political outbursts, some people aren't exactly thrilled.

His rants and raves about the legitimacy of just about anything and everything that makes President Barack Obama who he is has created a stir in the racing community. Now race fans, local citizens, and even an Indiana state lawmaker want to bump Trump from the race!

Michael Wallack, who took to Facebook and created a page protesting the Trump's appearance in the race, said:

"To me, when they first named Donald Trump, it just felt wrong. He has no relationship to the track, to the race, to racing, to Indianapolis, and I think I would have been bothered anytime with something like that. But to do that on the 100th anniversary, it made no sense. Then when he started going off on the birther stuff, that prompted me to do more and that's when I started the page."

Although Donald has not responded directly to those who wish to fire him from his racing gig, his executive vice president and special counsel, Michael Cohen, has said:

"The debate stems from unfounded, incorrect and malicious lies that Donald Trump has a racial bias toward the President. Nothing could be further from the truth, as Donald Trump doesn't have a racist bone in his body. Mr. Trump's request for President Obama's birth certificate, school records and documents were predicated upon transparency, a major part of President Obama's 2008 platform. If Mr. Trump should become the next president, he would provide these documents willingly."

That would be a great argument IF President Obama never showed his birth certificate, but sadly for Trump's reputation, he has…again…and again.

Rep. Jeb Bardon, a Democrat who represents the area surrounding the racetrack, thinks Trump's appearance will draw negative attention to this month's centennial celebration, and even used a speech at the legislature last week to call for a driver change.

Organizers say that they have never replaced a celebrity driver, at least in an incident that has been recorded over the last 100 years, but are monitoring the protests against Donald Trump's appearance.

Guess we'll find out by May 29 if Trump gets dumped by the Indy 500!
