How does one describe Danica Patrick’s time in NASCAR without coming across as a complete sexist moron that doesn’t want progress in their racing? While Patrick, who started racing in The Xfinity Series in 2012 did help NASCAR better appeal to more women, she didn’t exactly prove that she could hang with the guys.
Keep in mind that this doesn’t mean a women cant hang with the guys and won’t go on to tremendous success in NASCAR, but Danica Patrick wasn’t that person. Not only was that evident from her lack of success on the track, which looked embarrassed considering who she raced for, she also had a way of rubbing fans the wrong way.
With that being said and Danica Patrick’s NASCAR career in the books after a disappointing showing at Daytona, here are five reasons Danica Patrick didn’t exactly endear fans of the sport to her. In fact, its not hard to imagine that Patrick was more interested in her brand then she ever was in the fans and on track success.
