Driving Miss Patrick: Danica Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. are circling the track together

Go Daddy…Go Go..Daddy… Well all those hot Go Daddy commercials will have a little less bite now Danica Patrick is spoken for. It has surfaced that the sexy NASCAR driver has decided it was time to stop competing with the guys, and start dating them. Patrick has hooked up with fellow NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and they aren’t keeping it a secret any longer, according to msnfoxsports.com via the Associated Press.

”I have a boyfriend, his name is Richard,” she said during an exclusive telephone interview with AP.

”I think I am just finally excited to tell someone about this,” Patrick laughed, sounding almost giddy as she said the two-time Nationwide champion’s middle name is Lynn and he prefers she use his first name.

”We are dating, and I know there’s been a bit of a runaround this week at the media days and poor Ricky got grilled (with questions),” she said. ”It was out of respect to NASCAR, to all the manufacturers, the new cars, the teams, the sponsors, just to allow the news of the day to be about racing and not let anything interfere with that. So, it’s Friday now, so that’s why we waited until the end of the week to be up front about each other.”

Stenhouse confirmed the relationship:

”Yes we are dating,” he said. ”I don’t normally say too much about my private life, always been focused on the track. I didn’t want to confirm at media day so that we could keep the focus on the season, the Gen-6 (car), my sponsors and team. That’s what it’s all about for me.”
