That would be a terrible mistake. She must have pissed off someone in the series, because she has always gotten minimal support. When she was a young driver, and one of the personalities regularly highlighted as a "face" of the series, there were years where she couldn't get a ride for all the events.

Those were the years when Tony George was funneling money to many of the teams, and you'd think he could have assured her a ride. The publicity of having a competitive female driver in the series would probably pay back the investment many times over.

If the IRL can't get her an engine deal I think I'll be done watching, or at least caring about the future of that low rent soap opera.
