Richard Petty vs Danica Patrick And The Winner Is?

Well it seem that Tony Stewart had a good idea having Danica Patrick race Richard Petty to shut him up. If Tony Stewart thought The King would back down apparently he does not know him very well. Richard Petty said bring it on. Now Richard Petty is 76 years old and has not driven a race car in 25 years, but he is not back tracking you have to respect him for that.

Now the only thing left is where they will have the race and what day. It will be interesting to see if it actually takes place. Now if I was betting on the race I'm not betting against The King. There was a reason he won 200 Nascar races during his career.Danica is a lot younger, but Richard Petty is never one to back away from a challenge. This one should be very interesting to watch.

In A Way Richard Petty Is Correct About Danica Patrick

No matter how much I do not want to admit it The King Richard Petty has some valid points in his statements about Danica Patrick. I think Danica Patrick could win a race one day, but certain things must happen. One she has to earn the respect of everyone in the garage area which will be tough. Many drivers do not respect what she is doing and will make it tougher on her. Can Danica drive a race car? Yes, she can but many times it takes more then being a good driver.

You have to be lucky sometimes and get help from other drivers at times. Right now Danica is not getting much help from anyone. Some of the comments that Petty made were not real popular, but until she wins consistently they are valid arguments. Many times talk like this fuels Danica to greater heights and this could as well. Only time will tell if this does just that.

Will Danica Crack Under The Pressure Of Being On The Pole

Danica Patrick has done something no other woman has done and that is get the pole for The Daytona 500. Now you have to give her credit no easy task for anyone and she did it and now all the weight is on her shoulders. I'm sure Danica wants to prove it was not luck and be in contention at the end.

Pressure is something that is tough to measure. Certain people handle pressure better then others do. Danica will find out the pressue at a Daytona 500 is sky high. Expectations are high for Danica since she took the pole. Getting knocked out the race early will be a very big disappointment for her. If she can handle the pressure she should do great in The Daytona 500.

Danica Patrick Should Earn A Spot Not Be Given One

After I read about Danica Patrick and how she got her spot in the Daytona 500 I find myself not really happy the way it went down. I mean yes they bought there spot and that is legal under Nascar rules. I just do not think it is fair to other drivers trying to make the field. Yes, people will say they could have bought the spot, but most do not have the backing or that kind of money. If they want to get into the Daytona 500 they must race in. This is what Danica Patrick should have been forced to do as well. I am against people buying spots into this race.

Nascar has gotten away from a level playing field and that is why one-car teams have very little chance for success these days. Rickey Rudd found out how tough it was even with a good sponsor. Earning your spot in the big show is how it should be done. Dancia Patrick may have qualified anyways, but I still would have liked to see her earn it. Buying spots because you have deep pockets in my opinion is just wrong in my opinion.
