SHR could have provided me the points and I'd be in the race just like Danica.
Here’s some plain English for our readers today: Danica Patrick is locked into the 2012 Daytona 500 whether she likes it or not.
All the doubters can stop wasting their energy on debating whether or not she’ll make the “big show” because she already has before all the mayhem’s even started.
How is this so? Stewart-Haas took points from Tommy Baldwin Racing to secure Danica a spot in the Great American Race.
What does this mean for Danica Patrick and Stewart-Haas? She will not have to qualify or race her way into the Daytona 500 via the Gatorade Duels in her No. 10 Chevrolet.
What does this mean for Tommy Baldwin Racing? Dave Blaney will need to race or qualify for the Daytona 500 on speed and Blaney’s no stranger to speed.
Dave Blaney is fully capable of racing and qualifying his way into a race on speed either qualifying or racing his way into an event. He finished third last year at Talladega and ran up front in much of last year’s Daytona 500 before being shuffled to the back at the end of the race.
So what kind of deal was struck between the two organizations? SHR wasn’t available for comment according to NASCAR.com’s initial breaking of the points transfer.
Interesting indeed but I think either about three dozen long-stemmed roses or a singing telegram are in order for Tommy Baldwin Racing because somebody has some serious butt-kissing to do with that organization.
