“I told her she should challenge Richard to a heads up race,” said Stewart. “I think that would pretty much settle it once and for all, maybe get him to shut up a little bit too. He drove in an era when he had cars that were superior to what everybody else was running a lot. I think he forgets that, that NASCAR has changed a lot since he was a driver and how hard it really is now.”
Stewart added, “I will supply the cars, I don’t care. If he wants to race her I’ll make sure they have exactly the same set-up in the car and give him a chance. He can drive one of my 14 cars I don’t care.”
It was then suggested if Patrick ever won a race that she should ask Petty to autograph the checkered flag. Stewart, however, had another suggestion. “If I were her I’d take it over and cram it up his (bleep)…If it were me, that’s just me.”
