If he's as good as a driver as his mother is as a singer, he's a winner.

Hey "racing fan" she did not compare the speed of a race car to the SPEED of a rodeo. She said that they are both exciting and dangerous, so she understands his attraction to it.

Just what NASCAR doesn't need. Another connected name taking the place of more talently, deserving drivers just because they can attract attention and sponsorship.

He is actually a good driver. His mother has nothing to do with that. So now no relative of someone famous can be good at something in their own right? She's a talented and nice lady and he's a driver working hard, please leave it at that.
