Why Danica Doesn't Win

At first, it may look like Hamlin hit the left rear and spun her out, but listen to Mike Joy at the end of the clip...




Hamlin did check up and almost got wiped out by Sorenson....like he says, he can't help it if he's faster and her car is loose. She's a good driver but she needs to go back to open wheel. Just ask Juan Montoya. Problem is, she sucks on road courses.

Looks to me like he got into the back of her and spun her out.  His fault.

However, there is something basically cool about Danica Patrick being 'loose'.

Watch again...she slows down as she enters the corner, loses grip and goes up the track then comes back down. Watch Sorenson almost run into Hamelin because he has to slow down to avoid hitting her. Hamelin never touched her bumper.

Don't have to touch.  When you're in the corner, taking the air of the left side will make you loose.

It's quite obvious she wanted it from the back

Beavis said he got into the back of her, but thanks for the lesson in aerodynamics.

You can see that they touched.  Her ass got squirelly as soon as it happened.

If he touched her, it was just barely... but in that spot it's enough to spin her out.

Some of this is just a product of restrictor plate racing.  Danica gets loose and Hamlin either bumps her or slows up and gets bumped from behind.  I understand why Danica is pissed, but I see Hamlin's point too
