Danica Patrick said recently, "I'm just not a car person."

Wha-a-a-t (!?). Well, hang on ...

"I'm not into buying rare cars, fixing up a car, talking about cars," added Patrick, even though she's one of the best-known and highest-paid drivers on the Nascar circuit, at an event sponsored by Excedrin (made by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) - Get Report  on Wednesday, Sept. 6, to raise awareness of migraine sufferers, particularity in the workplace. Two years ago, Patrick had her first migraine post-race and has since sought treatment.

And don't ever talk to Patrick about a Hemi, an engine with hemispherical custom chambers built by Chrysler starting in the 1950s that amps up a car.

"If someone says, 'I got a V-8 Hemi,' whatever. I don't know what the heck to say."
