Kyle Petty Says Of Danica Patrick: “She Can Go Fast, But She Can’t Race”

There is no debate about Danica Patrick’s star power. Just yesterday, she was named one of the 100 most powerful celebrities in the world by Forbes.

There is debate, however, about her abilities as a NASCAR driver. Patrick is currently 27th in the Sprint Cup Series Standings and has just one Top 10 finish.

Appearing on SPEED’s "€œNASCAR Race Hub", FOX Sports analyst and former driver Kyle Petty shared some hot opinions on NASCAR’s "€œhot commodity"€. Hear for yourself.

What do you think? Let us know in the comment section below.

Petty has been taking some heat today on Twitter. Here’s his response.

Those coming to Danica’s defense include her former boss Dale Earnhardt Jr., as well as NASCAR on FOX lead analyst (and HOF driver) Darrell Waltrip.

Brad Keselowski offered the following via Twitter.

To be fair, Petty would go on to admit that he himself wasn’€™t a great NASCAR driver. And we know that KP will always have a soft spot in his heart for Danica.
