Danica Patrick is starting her first full season in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series driving for Stewart Haas Racing. She ran a full Nationwide series finishing in the top ten in series points and a ten race Cup schedule in 2012.
The biggest headline coming into the 2013 racing season hasn’t involved racing at all, but Patrick’s love life. Patrick, two weeks ago, confirmed the rumors that she was dating fellow driver, Ricky Stenhouse Jr were indeed true and the racing world has been abuzz.
Tony Stewart has the great job of fielding Patrick’s No.10 GoDaddy Chevrolet, so the number of questions he has received regarding Patrick’s love life has been many.
Patrick in her Daytona 500 qualifying run, made the pole on Thursday becoming the first woman to do so in the history of Sprint Cup. Her teammate Ryan Newman had a good run, as did Stewart.
The pole winning has taken some of the attention off of Patrick’s love life and put it back on racing and the Daytona 500.
