Chicks fighting isn’t really news. You can go on YouTube and search “Chick Fight” and get nearly 5,000 results. Attractive girls fighting also not all that rate, it would take just a short scroll down to the fifth result to find the first of many chick fights on the video sharing site that pairs a “yes” against a “yes.”
However, when the two females fighting are named Danica Patrick and Milka Duno - it’s news. Yesterday at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, OH, site of today’s Honday Indy 200, Patrick went over to Duno’s pit box to complain about the 36 year-old Venezuelan’s driving. Duno did not appreciate it.
*UPDATE*: Video footage of the altercation after the jump.
THE INDIANAPOLIS STAR reports: On a video shot by a friend of Duno’s and shown to The Star, Duno told Patrick on several occasions to “go away.” When Patrick didn’t leave immediately, Duno threw a towel in Patrick’s direction, prompting Patrick to direct foul language at Duno before the minute-long incident ended.
Aw yeah! Tempers flaring, attractive ladies talking smack to each other, open wheel racing has never been so sexy.
Duno showed Danica her bad side, but all she had to do was come in a nice way. “She came to my team and our pit box in a very bad way with bad words,” Duno said. “If you come in a nice way, perfect, we can talk. If you come in a bad way, you are going to find my bad side.
Danica blames the altercation on her popularity. It’s because you’re popular which is because you’re such a gifted driver that everything you do, besides actually driving is news.
“Unfortunately, things involving me tend to evolve. I’m on the hot seat when I do something and when others do something (connected to me). It’s kind of the line that I walk because I’m popular.”
Patrick starts today’s race from the 20th position while Duno will be in the 26th. Fingers crossed that the two find themselves in a position similar to yesterday’s practice run, this time with more than just one camera rolling.
*UPDATE*: The video footage is finally here!
