Kyle needs to remember as lots of others do, that his own career wasn't the kind of thing dreams are made of. The fact that he was for all intents cut by his own father doesn't exactly shout greatness from the roof tops. Danica is doing as well as half the male drivers she's competing against. I'm satisfied that she's a better driver than Kyle.

Kyle Petty=eight wins
Danica Patrick=zero wins. Zero wins in cup, zero wins in Nation Wide and Zero wins in ARCA.
Actually when Kyle left Richard had very little control as he had to take on investors to make races. In the end Kyle was more Petty Enterprise than Richard who is now the figure head of RPM.
Of the full time drivers in front line equipment, name one who is doing worse than Danica.
the only one is Hamlin , is one place behind her , who missed 4 races ...even part time Mark martin is right behind her ....

I know who is going to win tomorrow? It's going to be Harvick and If I'm wrong, I'll do almost what ever you say. If I'm right, you make sure you get over here and take me out to dinner. We can argue over dinner and I'll kiss your tears away for being wrong and so ancient. LOL!
I pick Matt Kenseth every week and we were both wrong.

Nothin' like a princess who loves Nascar. I will be so glad when I don't have to hear about Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon, & Tony Stewart ever again. I never cared 2 cents for any of those three.

I was wondering where you've been hiding. Yes we were both wrong and I'm tired of seeing Jimmie Johnson winning.

I love Nascar, I just don't care for the road race in Cali. I don't like he short tracks much, not enough speed for me. I'm not a Tony Stewart fan but I do like Jeff Gordon. Not so much for Jimmie Johnson either. It was a good race, not many big wrecks. I love football too and I like watching the x-games. I know it's weird, right?. I can't help it, I love sports.

I only make over here about once a week depending on my work schedule. I had a thread going on here a while back about Nascar destroying their integrity when they implemented the chase. I've been a nascar fan a long time and it was more interesting when it seemed like a bigger variety of drivers had a chance at the championship...Now it seems like just Jimmie Johnson or Tony Stewart. I will never be able to respect Johnson as a legend like Richard Petty or Dale Sr; Gordon on the other hand would be one championship away from catching them if it wasn't for the chase and even though I don't like him, I'd still respect him as a legend if he won that many.

BTW I am for Danica to have a successful Nascar career because I think it would be neat for a woman to prove that she can run with the big timers. Plus Simona de Silvestro is doing well in the Indy car series.
