Danica Patrick just decided to get divorced back in November from her husband Paul Hospenthal.  Now she's found a new fling.  Fellow NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr..  I don't know much about racing, but I'm guessing there isn't anything in the rule books that says you can't date a co-worker.  Mostly because it's usually all guys.  Here is what the new couple had to say about the new relationship via AP News. (Patrick) “I have a boyfriend, his name is Richard. I think I am just finally excited to tell someone about this.” (Stenhouse Jr.) “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.” It's only fitting that both drivers will be competing for the rookie of the year honors in NASCAR's top Sprint Cup Series.  Can we say relationship problems, haha. If I'm Ricky, I'm doing everything I can to finish the season above my new gal. P.S. We can't talk about Danica without showing you some hot pics of her in Hawaii, just wouldn't be right.
