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

    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???

    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.

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

    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...

    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.......

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

    When I read about how much Dale Earnhardt Jr. makes and winning just one race in all that time I hurried to tell my nephews who are now 15-guys you gotta consider racing cars-look what Earndhard Jr. makes!

    Say, was there ever any word on the baby's name? Just wondering cause I always like hearing what celebrities name their kids (you know, movies stars, sports people, yada yada yada).

    For the record, I'm just as tired of all the "Nancy bashing" over her crying, too.

    Sorry I have not heard anything about the baby's name...

    Tonya did say she wanted to keep her family life private in a interview with a local paper..

    It would have been great if she did.....But I don't think that would be anything Nancy would ever do...

    She looks great and really happy in that photo. I'm glad she's enjoying herself.

    Will the circus ever end with this gal? One of these days, Tonya's going to surprise us and take-up a more dainty hobby like knitting or watercoloring or playing piano.

    Tonya is more handsome that those three combined.
