Do you think 100-pound racecar driver Danica Patrick's outrage over a new rule to equalize the weights of each car allowing for differences in driver size is justified?

Yes, she has a right to be upset. She shouldn't be penalized for being small.

No, it sounds like a fair rule to me.

I would be interested to know her objection. The wording of this question makes it sound like she is unjustified in her "outrage," but surely she isn't just throwing a tantrum to get her own way. Is she?

Significantly, there is no link to a story outlining both sides of the issue, so we are meant to base our response solely on the wording of this question.

I'm sure this woman had to put up with a lot of crap to achieve success in the "manly" occupation of race car driving. Merely pouting or kicking her heels like a toddler in feigned "outrage" wouldn't get her very far, so I'm interested in a more nuanced description of this controversy.

No, it sounds like a fair rule to me. The weight should be equalized

Mark Martin, Ward Burton, Jeff Gordon, Johnnie Andretti, etc., etc., had to adhere to this rule!!

Reverse discrimination, Danica! Learn to drive instead.

I would have to hear both sides of the argument.
