Is Danica Patrick…sexist?

February 21, 2013

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.

    The point is moot since not only will she not win the race, I will bet she won’t even finish !!

    If she looked like Billie Jean King, NO ONE WOULD CARE !!!
