Daytona Drama: Danica Patrick Dating NASCAR Driver
Danica Patrick, the female NASCAR driver who gets tons of media buzz, is dating fellow driver Ricky Stenhouse, Jr.
"I have a boyfriend, his name is Richard," Patrick told the Associated Press.
Stenhouse confirmed the relationship.
"Yes we are dating," he said.
Patrick is 30 years old and recently divorced. She races for Stewart-Haas Racing, which is co-owned by Tony Stewart. Stenhouse is 25 and drives for Roush-Fenway Racing and served as a mentor to Patrick in the Nationwide Series last year, which was Patrick's first in NASCAR.
Both drivers will be riding full-time in the Sprint Cup Series (NASCAR's top division) this year. They will race against each other at the Daytona 500 in February when the NASCAR season begins.
