Richard Petty is selling “Wolf Tickets’ To Danica Patrick:
It appears that Petty, one of the all-time winner in NASCAR said that “if everybody else stayed home it may be the only way Danica could win the up and coming race.”
Danica is showing a little respect for the 76 year old Petty and didn’t have any rebuttal for the old mans’ banter.
Tony Stewart took offense to the comment the old codger made and challenged Petty to a race with the “beauty behind the wheel”.
“I think that (a race) would pretty much settle it once and for all, maybe get him to shut up a little bit, too,” Stewart said. “I will supply the cars. If he wants to race her, I’ll make sure they have exactly the same setup in the car and give him the chance. He can drive one of my 14 cars. I don’t care.”
Years ago another male chauvinist that played on the tennis circuit named Bobby Riggs “called Ass” on Billy Jean King. The outcome was amazing; Billy Jean beat the pants off of Bobby hands down.
I know that back then it was a publicity stunt between the two tennis players but I feel that Richard Petty seriously does not want women in “his” male dominate sport. I happen to disagree. Why not? This is the land of equal opportunity.
If Petty knows what is good for him he better develop a serious case of “my back is killing me and I can’t drive” or this little lady just might embarrass the hell out of the old ridge runner if the grudge match ever happens; maybe!!
