In today's NASCAR it is all about the sponsors. Talent no longer matters. While Danica can drive a race car much better than I probably could, she did not have the skill to compete at the top level. I'm not even sure she would make a good Xfinity driver, she shouldn't have gotten higher than an ARCA ride.

In other news, Amirola is out of the 43 next year since Smithyfield just moved to SHR. Sponsorship has always been important in NASCAR since you need to pay the bills, but at some point these sponsors have to realize that talent is also important. Putting you name on a mediocre ride just doesn't give you the exposure you need.
The downside of being better than everyone else is that people tend to assume you're pretentious.
