NASCAR Couple Danica Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. Split

Danica Patrick Ricky Stenhouse Jr. end 5-year relationship

NASCAR drivers Danica Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. have ended their almost five-year relationship, a spokeswoman for Patrick confirmed to the Associated Press.

But Stenhouse was not accompanied by Patrick when he attended the NASCAR Cup Series awards ceremony November 30 at the Wynn Las Vegas, fueling speculation the couple had separated.

She has competed full time in the NASCAR Cup Series the last five years following a transition from IndyCar.

Before her relationship with Stenhouse, Patrick was married to Paul Hospenthal for seven years.




Danica Patrick probably won't be at as many NASCAR races as we were expecting in 2018. She is retiring as a full-time driver. She told us Ricky had not proposed but added, "I was ready yesterday". They raced against each other weekly, and over the course of their relationship they clashed competitively, leading to post-race disagreements.

It was made public about a month after the end of the Cup season, which Patrick announced would be her last as a full-time driver in auto racing. Patrick, who drove for Stewart-Haas Racing from 2013-17, has not announced which team (s) she will join to race at Daytona and Indianapolis next season. It's an outgoing celebration she has dubbed the "Danica Double".

She also has a book coming out on December 26th, titled 'Pretty Intense: The 90-Day Mind, Body and Food Plan that will Absolutely Change Your Life'.
