This early in the season with the countdown, she could skip and still win the championship

Last year, Langdon missed the first 4 and got in. I think he is the record holder.
Alexis missed 4 and almost got in.

Default Lot of pressure from sponsor??

I would imagine that Monster does not want the car on the sidelines. All drivers go into this sport knowing the risk, I don't want to cold but this is the fact.

I believe there should be a better escape plan for canopy cars on there top. I would image they are equipped with fire bottles under the canopy.

My source says she will run the first session and then decide.

One would think there's a provision in the contract to put an alternate drive in the car.

But there's no talk of that so I have little doubt she'll be driving this weekend.

Like no canopy at all or just leaving the lexan portion off?

She does have a legit concern with fire. If I were in one of those things I would want it as airtight as can be and be pressurized. Is that how they are in drag boats?
