This time of year racing news is kind of slow. Still there have been some things of note especially as teams have been testing at Daytona & Charlotte with the new car. But the biggest racing news this month is that Danica Patraick is dating Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Danica, a success in the media if not yet in NASCAR came out in an interview recently stating her love for the 25-year-old two-time Nationwide champion. They will both be competing against each other for the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Rookie of the Year title.
Danica announced last November that she and husband Paul Hospenthal were divorcing after seven years of marriage, and said in the Jan. 3 filing that her marriage to the 47-year-old Hospenthal was “irretrievably broken.”
