I wanna hear the recording of what petty said because to my knowledge there was only what I guy said he said at an auto show. Heard a follow up podcast where the king was asked to clarify and he said she was fast. That she could win at Daytona, at talledaga, and on road courses but she couldn't win on the majority of the intermediate tracks like the rock. That she needed to learn to race more. All of which is true otherwise she wouldn't wreck as much. The king has a history of making back handed compliments to ridicule Janet Guthrie in mid 70s and it's being used against him. He spoke the truth

Default Re: Richard Petty accepts Danica's race challenge

When Petty raced, the cars were substantially different from one another, unlike today. His car could have 700hp and his competitors may only have 500hp, not to mention the difference in aerodynamics. Rules were a lot different back then and he made damn sure they favored him.

Petty has little to say about Danica being out there because she is a woman, he owns a race team simply to give his sons a job. How many of the Petty sons have won races? They are out there because of their last name, nothing else.

Petty is an idiot.

IMO the real king of NASCAR was Banjo Matthews and very few today know who he was. He was the master chassis builder.
Quote:
Why were Banjo’s chassis so popular? What set them apart from everyone else? Cars built by Matthews had won 262 of 362 NASCAR Winston Cup races from 1974-1985, including all 30 races in 1978, and four consecutive Winston Cup championships (1975-78).

Still don't get all the hype for Danica. She won one race in open wheel(in japan) and has done literally next to nothing in nascar.

I'm not saying she can't drive because she wouldn't be there if she couldn't( although that's up for debate) but come talk to me when she actually accomplishes something.

Everyone gives dale jr a hard time but at least he finishes near the top consistently. She can't even do that.

It's a setup from the beginning (follow the money.) NASCAR is in trouble and they've tried desperately to resurrect it by creating a super villain (Jimmy Johnson). That hasn't worked so this scheme is another desperate attempt to inject some life into a dying sport. Don't misunderstand, I used to be an avid, rabid fan but since NASCAR has tried to go Hollywood, it has lost my and many others (good ole boys) support. Rant over. Let the criticism begin. Lol

I will admit that I was a bigger fan before Cali and Las Vegas days but when did Jimmy Johnson become a super villian?

I say super villain because who in the history of NASCAR has ever won 5 titles in a row when his Crew Chief has been caught cheating repeatedly and slapped on the wrist. "Wrestling on Wheels" I think these championships are settled before the season ever begins in back rooms. Am I crazy? Maybe but until someone provides evidence to the contrary this is the only scenario that makes any realistic sense to me. Even Dale didn't win 5 in a row.
I've been a Jeff Gordon fan since he started in the sport but I really believe Rick Hendrick is bad for the sport.

Exactly! Trying to cookie cut charlotte motor speedway over and over and over. Constant rule changes, mid season, heck even mid race are getting old too. Looks an awful lot like prof rastlin. Still, I'll watch some here and there....

Back in the day when Gordon first came out a lot of people said the same thing about it being fixed for him. I really haven't watched much NASCAR in the last 5 or 6 years so I can't comment on them fixing it. My issue is them constantly changing the chase. They change it every 2 or 3 years. The way Darlington was treated turned me off. Moving it from Labor Day really bothered me
