A controversial take from Skip Bayless about Danica Patrick has resurfaced on social media.

The former ESPN personality, who's now with Fox Sports 1, called on NASCAR drivers to help Patrick win the Daytona 500, believing it would elevate the sport.

Unsurprisingly, Bayless faced major criticism for the opinion.

Yikes.

Even Patrick is someone who would probably strongly disagree with that opinion from Bayless.

The former IndyCar and NASCAR driver has since retired from racing, though she remains close to the sport.
