As for danica she and others have the same ability to get sponsers....so she has never beat someone who has better sponsers or more money...? As for danica yep a lot has to do with the mechanics of a car....but all drivers have the same ability. They still have to have certain requirements on their cars if her team is able to put together a better car then that makes her and her team better, it is still and equal playing field. They are not giving her a head start because she is female, they are not slowing down because she is female she has to abide by the same rules and expectations as all other nascar drivers, if she and her daddy are able to put together a better team so be it. Much like hockey.....in this day in age it is the management who can and will buy the best players....Can the maple leafs win the cup YEP if management spent the money to do so. Does it mean that the leafs or any other team is on a different playing field NOPE just means some are willing to spend the money they all play by the same rules.
