IRL: Patrick's joke not so funny

The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency is not laughing about what Danica Patrick insists was a joke, according to Foxsports.com. When asked if she would take performance enhancing drugs, Patrick responded, "Yeah, it would be like finding a gray area. In motorsports, we work in the gray areas a lot. You're trying to find where the holes are in the rule book."

Our View: That certainly doesn't sound like a joke—but then again that's one problem with print. It doesn't catch the inflection of a driver's voice and we are willing to give her the benefit of the doubt on this one.
