Speed Racer

The skeptics say Danica didn’t win to race.
Elio says he slowed down to let her win.

Of course, that’s just machismo talking.
But Danica’s been close so many times.

It was bound to happen.
She’s rarely out of the top ten.

What did they have to say when Janet Guthrie
finished sixth at Bristol?

Racing them good ol’ boys,
and then going flat out at Indy.

The skeptics say Danica didn’t win the race.
But the flag man doesn’t wave the checkered flag at losers.
