Petty says Patrick 'isn't a race car driver'

Jun 28, 2013 Full story: SanLuisObispo.com 67

During a Thursday night appearance on SPEED's "Race Hub" program, the former driver and current TV analyst said Patrick is more of a marketing machine than a race car driver and doubts the 30-year-old will ever be one "because I think it's too late."

I agree with Kyle...regardless of how many wins he has. She's in it for the celebrity status and money.

Well after that I'm sure NASCAR will be packing some extra HP in the inspection room for Danica to try and help her out at this weekends race

Not sure why Kyle felt he had to tell us what we already knew.

Didn't Kyle Petty's own dad fire him from racing. He was not much of a racer and certainly not a marketing machine. Danica is as good on the track as Kyle(big mouth) is in the booth. He just needs to shut up we all know he did not amount to anything on the track.

I thought she was doing pretty good from what I see every week. I think I can go the rest of my life with out having to look at Michael Waltrip any more.

Kyle has been on Danica's case from Day 1. He may be an “analyst” (I think that’s what he’s called), but Petty is no expert when it comes to rating a person's performance. It was ten years between times he placed in a top ten finish. And he failed to even make a race more times than I can remember. Danica has qualified for every race she has entered. Yes, there are problems, some at least which can be attributed to the overall problems in Tony Stewart's racing team. She is doing a great job. She’s competitive. She is head and shoulders above many of her peers. Kyle is more than a devil's advocate when it comes to a opinion. He likes to listen to himself talk. And he too frequently has to mention what “The King” would say. Give it a rest.

He speaks his opinion...It's possible that she lucks into a win, but there's no championship in her future in any series...It's about making money and she is good at it...

I think you're wrong princess. If you believe Danica will be a champion someday, you might be crazy.

Kyle petty is a poor example of a driver to be criticizing anyone. He doesn't,t know how to be a commentator either. I think TNT could find better!!

Wow! Maybe I'm crazy but, listening to Kyle is a vast improvement over Darrell Waltrip. Kyle may not have been the "greatest" driver, but he does stay closer to reality.
Danica winning a NASCAR Cup championship is not likely.
She is no question a good driver, the problem is the 20 or 30 great drivers she competes with.

I definitely agree with you about Waltrip. My mute button sure comes in handy anytime he is near a microphone. He can't get enough of Danica and the Hendricks boys and he's the biggest nascar kiss ass in the business.

Who said any thing about her being a Champion? Your words not mine. Name the Champions? Stewart and Johnson and Gordon and Keselowski. There are some good quality drivers who haven't come that close to winning a Championship, so what's the problem?
