Danica Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. On The Rocks?

Friday, June 14, 2013

Nickelodeon's 26th Annual Kids' Choice Awards - ArrivalsDANICA Patrick‘s romance with Ricky Stenhouse Jr. is reportedly on the rocks.

Patrick isn’t happy that Stenhouse made her crash on the race track, say  sources.

Patrick, 31, who began dating the six-years-younger racer on the heels of her split from husband Paul Hospenthal last November, was running strong May 26 at the Coca Cola 600 in Charlotte, N.C.

But Stenhouse clipped the side of her No. 10 Chevrolet, shoving her into NASCAR champ Brad Keselowski and sending both smashing into the wall. Patrick continued racing – as Ricky roared past scot-free – but limped to a 29th place finish.

Later, Patrick said the accident was “unfortunate,” but a source says it may be only the tip of the iceberg for problems between the couple.

“Ricky had hell to pay when they met up after the race. There’s no sport more fiercely competitive or where tempers get raised more than NASCAR – and Danica is famous for having a short fuse,” the source says.

“Ricky and Danica are going to run into each other again and again, and racing veterans are taking bets this relationship doesn’t reach the finish line.

“She’s trying to keep her professional and personal lives separate, but it gets harder to do when you’re competing against your boyfriend.

“Ricky helped her get over the end of her marriage to Paul and is great to her when they’re not strapped into their race cars.

“But they’re competing against each other in a highly volatile sport, and Danica worries that the dog-eat-dog world of racing will destroy her chance of lasting love with Ricky.”

    Adam spreads gossip like an old blue haired bitty? Adam is an idiot? If he had two brain cells to rub together, Adam would be dangerous?

      I agree with you except what’s with the wrong punctuation?

    Nice job by the NE, since they are who originally posted this, taking their quotes and chopping them. Danica said the discussion about the wreck was over by the time they got home (drive from the track to home for them is most likely less than 40 mins in the racing area of NC)… and after that they had a couple beers and went to bed. The next day they went out on Lake Norman together with friends. Gather the real facts before starting crap for no reason.

      Seconded. The “news” lies and chops quotes so much it’s not even funny. I can’t stress enough how much I agree with you. Danica Patrick for the win!
