Do you know what percentage of wins in professional racing are won by fuel strategy? Alot more than you might think. Including the last Sprint Cup race that Jimmie Johnson just won on a fuel gamble by his crew chief Chad Knaus last weekend.

But it'* ok for JJ, just not Danica, right?
calm down there sparky. i was utilizing sarcasm to make a point. i think its sad that "Jim Armstrong" in the AP felt the need to point out that she won "after the top contenders were forced to pit for fuel". PMom got exactly what i was saying [whether she knew it or not, i sincerely hope she did], apparently you did not.
