Indy Racing

I just read a report on ESPN.com where Robby Gordon, who races NASCAR now, said that Patrick girl has an unfair advantage because she weighs about 100 lbs. less than most of the guys. Gordon said IRL should look into the matter to fix the problem.

Does it really matter she is 100lbs. less with those cars having such high performance engines?? I know less weight is better, but will her weight difference really matter in a car with 600-700+ horsepower?

WTF? This isn't Horse Racing

Although, I do see his point. I'd guess that the average race car driver weighs in at 180 . . . so 80 lbs does make a slight difference. Not enough that would take her from Row 2 to the last row, however. She's just good.

Oh and HOOOOTTTTTTT
