Danica Patrick’s relationship with fellow NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. has been a major story in the racing world over the past month. Patrick admitted that dating another driver is not the best idea, but she says she can’t help it. In an interview with Men’s Health, Patrick was asked why she thought dating one of her co-workers was a good idea. “Well, I don’t think I thought it was a good idea,” Patrick answered. “There was nothing I could do about it. You can’t tell your heart who to like and not like. It just happened.” Patrick is aware that a breakup could lead to tension on the track, but she says she is not thinking about that. “Yeah, okay, I know I’m setting myself up for that. But I choose not think about that possibility right now. I’m going to be positive.” People have wondered how the relationship would affect their racing. Patrick says the two already respected each other on the track, so that will continue. In the interview, Patrick also acknowledged that she has a temper, though she says she is doing better to control it. Patrick and Stenhouse raced in the Nationwide Series last season, and they are rookies in the Sprint Cup Series this season. The relationship was made public a few months after Patrick’s divorce from her husband was announced. You can read Patrick’s entire interview with Men’s Health here.

  • Is it just me or does anyone really think Danica really has a snowball chance at ever winning a NASCAR race? I applaud her efforts but she is going to get someone hurt. She is an attractive lady and her looks is what is good for NASCAR not her ability to compete and win races.
