Danica Patrick Divorce: NASCAR Driver Talks Boyfriend Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

Posted: Updated:

On Saturday, NASCAR driver Danica Patrick sat down with Marc Malkin of E! News to dish on her post-split romance with fellow driver Ricky Stenhouse, Jr.

"I'll say, 'Babe, am I less hot when I'm not good on [the] track? Does that make me less attractive?'" she said. "And he's like, 'Hon, I'm not with you because you're a race car driver.'"

Stenhouse is Patrick's first boyfriend since she filed for divorce from physical therapist Paul Hospenthal in January 2013. She first announced their plans to divorce in November 2012 on her Facebook page.

Since the split, Patrick has seen some major professional success. In February, she hit a career high when she became the first woman to win the pole position for the Daytona 500 and achieved a top-10 finish. But she has also seen her fair share of disappointments. In March, she blew a tire and finished 39th at the Subway Fresh Fit 500 in Phoenix. The following week, she landed in 33rd place at the Kobalt Tools 400 in Las Vegas.

Patrick isn't the first NASCAR superstar to call it quits with her spouse. Click through the slides below for five others who did the same.
