The last sentence of the article:

"The company was conspicuously absent from Patrick’s firesuit during media days for the 2017 season in January. Patrick took her season pictures wearing a firesuit branded by TaxAct, which sponsored her in a handful of races in 2016."

This is what sparked the query into why Danica was not wearing Nature's Bakery livery.

An 18 YO HS girl has won top fuel at a national meet. 70 YO John Force is still winning in FC.

Neither of those two has a chance in circle track or road racing.

Is top fuel or FC easy? Absolutely not, but is does require less driving skill than Cup. or any Pro racing series.

Why does a 50 YO lose his skills in Cup but can still win in Drag racing?

I am not insulting drag racers, I actually like to watch the drag race pros but you have to admit it's more about the cars than the driver. Most say the race is won in the first 60' so it's all about reaction time instead of high speed car control.

Maybe Haas will step up like he did for his Kurt Busch car.

Waste of money, the car is still going to run in the back of the field.

I suggest SH dump Danica and put a good driver in the car and if it runs up front quality sponsors will be offering to put their name on the hood.

I can think of one driver. Alex Bowman.

I am sure Hendrick would approve.

Nevermind, better yet Rickey Stenhouse he's already a Ford driver.
