Is Danica Patrick…sexist?
Hey, I don’t like this any more than you do, but it really looks that way:
Danica Patrick looking for victory kiss, but not from Miss Sprint Cup
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — One of the oldest traditions in stock-car racing used to be the winning driver getting a kiss in victory lane from a NASCAR trophy girl.
That tradition has died out over the years, but it still made for a topic of discussion for Daytona 500 polesitter Danica Patrick.
Patrick, who made headlines by becoming the first woman to win a pole for a Sprint Cup race, was asked on “The Dan Patrick Show” Tuesday if she would kiss Miss Sprint Cup in victory lane if she won the Daytona 500, because there isn’t a “Mr. Sprint Cup.”
“There is only one mister I will be kissing, and I don’t think they’re going to be wearing a Sprint Cup suit,” she said.
And I don’t think she means Jesse Heiman.
No, no, no. That’s not what she means, either.
