i heard Danica say more than once that she was just riding around at half throttle most of the race. i had suspected that is what they do during those long races until it gets down to the last few laps. i was glad to see her do as good as she did. that shows that you do not have to be a big brawny boy to do good in nascar.
 she is not the only one that wrecked a lot while learning how to drive.

They run a reduced throttle in the draft, unless you're the leader, at the front of a particular line. Normal procedure at Daytona and Talladega super speedways.

DANICA PLACED EIGHTH! (some other guy won) DANICA PLACED EIGHTH!

I'm proud of her accomplishments. but she is a little over-hyped, ya think? When the racing actually started in the last lap, she went backwards pretty fast. Maybe with a lot more experience, she'll be in it at the end.

Yeah, she got outgunned by experience at the end, but she drove a good race.  It is a huge challenge to stay up front all day in a race like that.  If you could average their position lap by lap, she would probably win that.  I think the hype will eventually die down once she wins a race or two.  She'll just be one of the guys then...I hope.

Not a fan but do watch the 500.
What is a restrictor plate and how does it work?

I think they restrict the air intake. Not much of a race fan myself though.

Danica is cute but the guys that protect her say she is "difficult" to say the least.

A restrictor plate is a spacer plate that goes between the cardburetor and the intake manifold. The holes in the plate are smaller than the holes in the carburetor to control the amount of air and fuel that goes into the engine.

NASCAR started using fuel injection last year. I don't know what they use to restrict the engines now.

A restrictor plate will work exactly the same on a fuel infected engine. If only X amount of air can be sucked in, then the computer only injects y amount of fuel to match. As far as the engine can tell it's just like having a smaller carb, or the throttle only opening 3/4 of the way. Low end power isn't greatly affected, but at full revs/throttle the restriction starts to have an effect and reduces the peak power.

...either 1 of the shrub brothers !

That's a good one!  My favorite shrub moment was when Jimmy Spencer punched Urt in DA Shnoz. Never been a Dodge fan but, the racing was better with them. I hope they get back in.
