Does NASCAR Hall of Famer Richard Petty think Danica Patrick will win a Sprint Cup Race?
Yes, he does, “if everybody else stayed home.”
The King made that comment Monday at the Canadian Motorsports Expo in Toronto, according to wheels.ca.
Patrick became the first woman to ever with the pole position at the Daytona 500 last year and finished in eighth place.
This week she begins her second full season at NASCAR's highest level.
Petty also said Patrick's publicity is good for NASCAR, but it only comes because she's a woman.
