During the Podcast, Iconic NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer said, “You’re ultra-competitive and you get supersonic pissed off when things don’t go Danica’s way. That’s… I like that the most about you.”

He further added, “You know you were an attractive female racing, you just said if you’re out with young engineers, you guys are dating, automatic you know.”

“The worst thing about racing is how tight a circle that is and it’s like literally oh my god heaven forbid if you ever get caught talking to somebody like it’s on, it’s done, it’s official, you might as well up it to the record books, they’re full-on dating and that’s just the way it is.”
