Less than a month from filing divorce paperwork, has Danica Patrick already found her a new squeeze?Fellow NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. fielded questions from the media on Thursday as part of the Roush Fenway Racing stop on a preseason tour. Most of those questions involved the possibility that he and Patrick are dating.When he was asked whether or not he could confirm the rumor:"We've got a great relationship. Obviously, it started when she came into the sport. We were both going to rookie meetings. It's been cool to work with her in the Nationwide Series. I've felt like she could come to me with advice with the experience I've had.Patrick was unavailable for comment on Thursday. However, she did refer to him as a "good friend" during a media session on Monday. Nonetheless, Stenhouse continued to deflect the rumors."But, you know, I don't like to talk too much about my personal life. I think this week is about Roush Fenway, the Gen 6 (car), our sponsors and our season that we're looking ahead to. It's going to be fun racing her in rookie of the year. I think it's going to be very exciting. I've never raced a friend for a championship, for rookie of the year."The two reportedly attended a Professional Bull Riders event last weekend with a group of friends. Stenhouse called it a "lot of fun" and added the believes it was Patrick's first rodeo ever.Patrick filed for divorce from husband Paul Hospenthal, a physical therapist, earlier this month. She claims the marriage is "irretrievable broken" with "no reasonable prospect of reconciliation."Via USA Today
