To most of the racing world, the Budweiser Shootout is an all-star race. It’s a largely ceremonial event that kicks off the Sprint Cup season and pits the top drivers in the series against each other for a for-fun-only race that is more about pride than money.
But racing being a big business and NASCAR being [...]
One thing I’ve noticed over the years in dealing with Danica Patrick is her infinite patience with people who want something from her.
