SPARTA, Ky. (AP) - Danica Patrick doesn't care that Kyle Petty thinks she's better at getting attention than driving because she's heard it all before.
But if Petty's going to attack her, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series rookie believes he should at least get his facts straight.
On Friday, Patrick responded to Petty's comments a night earlier on Speed's ``Race Hub'' program, in which the former Sprint Cup driver called her a ``marketing machine'' rather than a race car driver. Petty also doubted that Patrick would become a driver and insisted that she doesn't race as well as she qualifies.
Patrick's statistics suggest otherwise. On average she's finishing almost six spots higher (25.8) than she starts (32nd), which she noted by saying, ``those who watch know I can't qualify for crap. The race goes much better.''
