The 5'2" NASCAR driver won't back down from her critics—and has made it clear she isn't afraid to stand tall against drivers she thinks are targeting her on the track.
DAN PATRICK: What kind of mood are you in?
DANICA PATRICK: I'm in a good mood. It's turned to summer finally. I wore shorts yesterday.
DP: Do you ever get a farmer's tan?
DP: I try really hard not to have a farmer's tan.
DP: You got caught up in a wreck at Talladega on May 5. Why is that track so dangerous?
DP: Because we are going 200 to 205 mph. You're running in such a close pack. The track is so big that you can keep flat on the throttle the whole way around and run nose-to-tail and three or four wide. When someone goes sideways, it collects a lot of cars. It's not usually a couple of cars in an accident. It's like 14-car accidents.
DP: Do you think NASCAR wants rivalries?
