When Juan Montoya moved to Nascar from F1, he got huge amounts of coverage despite having poor results. Why? Because he was different than the other NASCAR drivers - a successful F1 driver who people were sizing up against successful NASCAR drivers.

So why do you view Danica's popularity or coverage any differently? Fans want to see her for various reasons - she's a woman in a sea of white males, she's an attractive woman in a sea of white males, she's a modestly successful Indy car driver that people are sizing up against successful NASCAR drivers.
