Danica Patrick, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. end relationship after 5 years

  • NASCAR couple Danica Patrick Ricky Stenhouse Jr. split after 5 years

The soon-to-be retired NASCAR driver and Stenhouse, a fellow circuit star, have called it quits after five years together, Patrick's rep confirmed Monday, via ESPN.

The Associated Press first reported the news.

TMZ reports that Patrick said in July she "was ready yesterday" to be engaged, but that Stenhouse Jr. had not proposed yet.




Patrick also recently announced that she is retiring as a full-time NASCAR driver, although she does hope to race in the 2018 Daytona 500 and 2018 Indy 500.

While there are no details around the cause of the split, rumors of a breakup began swirling when Stenhouse Jr. showed up at NASCAR's annual awards on November 30 without his famous lady as his date.

If Danica Patrick wasn't dealing with enough change for 2018 since she won't be back in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series full time, she'll be navigating some changes away from the track as well. In a recent documentary directed by Hannah Storm, Patrick revealed she had some eggs frozen a couple of years ago, and that she wanted kids but wanted to be married first. She has one IndyCar win in her career and has the highest finish of any female driver in the Indianapolis 500 (third) and the Daytona 500 (eighth).
