NASCAR is a sport, and it requires stamina, endurance, and physical fitness if one wants to win. Driving at speeds up to 150+ miles per hour for 200 to 500 laps around a quarter to two mile track requires intense concentration, focus, and reflexes fast enough to adapt to ever changing, and very deadly, situations on the track. You don't have to like it, but your assessment that it does not require "fitness" is in error.
As for Danica Patrick, congratulations! She's a good driver, and it's nice to see her place in the top ten.
