I know nothing of racing cars but the article seems to imply that speed that Tonya hit was exceptional for a vintage 1931 vehicle. Whatevs good on Tonya. I wonder if she's making any worthwhile bucks off of this?

I am glad that Ms Harding is finding success.

We all make mistakes as part of maturation. Some mistakes are stupid, some are reckless, and some are criminal. Some are all 3.

Now what? Hasn't Ms Harding paid her sentences? Been punished? Is she supposed to live under a rock the rest of her life?

Or can she move on and find a positive outlet for her obviously competitive nature? Seems that she has chosen wisely now.

warmly,
Nikki Lee

I think what Tonya did to Nancy Kerrigan was very mean.

:mad:

Honestly, you people!! It was only 13 years ago that Ms. Harding destroyed our sweetheart!

You young people, with all your "I forgive you this" and "I forgive you that" crap. Can't anybody hold a grudge anymore, like we did in the old days (aka, the 90's).

I supposed I'll have to find somebody new to tar and feather now. Have you all forgiven Conrad Black, too?

Wow - I popped in to check out the off season news and here's Tonya!! :rofl:

I'm shocked there have been no comments about her checkered top. So are they really that huge? Or do the checkers make them look that huge? I might have to invest in a black and white checkered blouse.

Good for Tonya being the first at something...again.

SS What I'm was implying was the mechinic would have had to use stock parts and tweeked the engine to accomplish this. She just put the pedal to the medal and drove.

But she was probably the mechanic, too. :)

Isn't it the same for all professional racecar drivers? You or I could take their place and have the same success! How much does that gig pay per hour, anyway??? :confused:

Dale Earnhardt Jr earned the most last year: 29M dollars. He has only won one race in 3 years.

Jeff Gorden earned second most last year: 25M dollars.

Jimmy Johnson was third with 24 M dollars. He won the Sprint Cup the last 5 years.

The Sprint Cup consists of a 36 race schedule, 26 which allow a driver to qualify for the 10 race chase, the winner of which wins the Sprint Cup.

http://www.nascar.com/races/cup/index.html

It's a grueling schedule. Races are typically four or five hundred miles. A race week involves 2 practices, and a qualifying run which establishes start position. Then the race. Then its off across country to a new venue.

You also risk dying in a car crash.

No, I couldn't do it. I can't speak for you.

One way to find out is to go to NASCAR's version of fantasy camp.

The kids can take in Disney while you try to drive the car.

I believe you are right. Of course, imo not everyone can control a vehicle at say 200 mph. :blah:

Yes they are that huge...She gave birth to a baby boy back in Febuary!!

You can see her break the speed record on a rerun of "Trutv Presents: Worlds Dumbest Record breakers" part: Whatever..Her fellow cast members were making fun of her intil they showed photos of her on top of the car posing in a Sexy bikini...

I think that no matter what she does, some people will always see her as a skam artist and paint her with a negative brush. What a waste of energy.

What's worse, Nancy was the victim & she has been painted with a far more negative brush. There is always someone to defend poor widdle Tonya but Nancy always comes off a whiney bitch. She should have just grinned and bared (uh bore) it. Most people like being hit in the knee with weighted pipes. She was just trying to draw attention to herself with all that crying.

That would be one pay grade higher from my current position....... :eek:

If I'm making 29 million per year, with a success rate of ONE, that's the spin I'd put on it too!!! :D
