The thing about NASCAR Sprint Cup racing is that in any given event only one driver wins. The other 42 all lose.
Of course, some lose worse than others. And for NASCAR's resident sweethearts, Danica Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Sunday's Brickyard 400 at historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway was an exercise in abject futility.
The bottom line - and an ugly bottom line it was - was that Ricky finished a disappointing 25th, while Danica was a dispirited 30th. Her craptastic result was accentuated - and not in a good way - by the fact that one of her teammates, Ryan Newman, won the Brickyard 400. Danica's other teammate and boss, Tony Stewart finished fourth.
Jimmie Johnson appeared on FOX Sports Live Sunday night to talk about his sixth NASCAR championship. In the one-on-one interview with Dan O'Toole, he was also asked about McNabb's controversal comments about drivers not being athletes.
