It’s difficult to imagine anyone not picking up their phone if Danica Patrick was calling, but one future hall of fame athlete might be a little too busy — and he resides in Ohio.
In a video tweeted Thursday by Pocono Raceway, Danica Patrick joined fellow Stewart-Haas Racing drivers Clint Bower and Kevin Harvick in answering a variety of questions. When asked to name a famous person in her phone who might pick up if she called, Patrick offered quite the name drop: LeBron James.
Even if Patrick was right and James was playing basketball when she called, Patrick isn’t exactly someone you say, “I’ll call you when I get a chance” to.
Also, although nothing is impossible, it’s safe to assume Patrick’s wish to win five consecutive Cup races will remain the stuff of dreams for quite some time, especially if she doesn’t get the hang of NASCAR’s new racing format.
