Danica Patrick is a hot topic in NASCAR garages again.
The renewed buzz leading up to Sunday's race at Talladega Superspeedway stems from Patrick's first IndyCar Series win with NASCAR drivers.
Patrick's win last Sunday in Japan made her the first woman to win a major open-wheel race.
Sprint Cup points leader Jeff Burton said there are plenty of challenges involved in any such move, regardless of gender. He has little doubt that a woman can succeed in NASCAR and was "really impressed" with Patrick's win.
Fellow driver, Kevin Harvick has a similar sentiment.
