NASCAR driver Danica Patrick is responding to Hall of Famer Richard Petty's criticism.
She's taking the "any publicity is good publicity" route.
"As I said the last time somebody said something that was not so positive for me, it spawns so many positive articles," Patrick said. "I love the conversation that it creates in sport, and across the board it makes sports interesting. It makes life interesting when people have different perspectives, and that's fine with me."

Petty said last week that the only way Patrick would ever win a Sprint Cup race was "if everybody else stayed home."
