Danica Patrick appeared on Fox and Friends this morning to discuss the new Can-Am Spyder vehicle and the controversial comments by NASCAR Hall of Famer Richard Petty.

The three-wheeled Can-Am Spyder is unique, as Patrick explained, "It's the first thing of its kind, it's the first thing that allows you to ride in the open air but have all the control, stability and confidence to ride it at any point in time for your experience level."

Petty has made disparaging remarks about Patrick's ability in the past and has accepted NASCAR driver Tony Stewart's challenge for the two to race.

Patrick responded, "I have respect for my elders and people are going to judge what he says, but I'm not going to. I have the faith and belief of Tony Stewart, and the people around me, the people that own the team and that's what matters."
