NASCAR CUP Drivers were together for all their races

Danica Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse Jr., have ended their relationship after five years together while they competed against each other in the Cup Series.

The Associated Press first reported the news.

Patrick and Stenhouse’s relationship began just prior to their rookie Cup seasons in 2013.

Their entire time together, Patrick drove the No. 10 for Stewart-Haas Racing and Stenhouse drove the No. 17 for Roush Fenway Racing.

Both struggled to find success on track, going winless through their first four seasons. Stenhouse finally broke through in 2017, winning twice at Talladega and Daytona and making the second round of the playoffs. Patrick was a prominent part of victory lane.

The separation is the latest chapter in a notable couple of months for Patrick.

It was made public about a month after the end of the Cup season, which Patrick announced would be her last as a full-time driver in auto racing. The Nov. 19 finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway was her last driving the No. 10 Ford for Stewart-Haas Racing and it ended early with a crash.

Patrick, 35, also revealed she intends to compete in the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500 next season before completely retiring from auto racing. No team announcements have been made.

On Nov. 8, a documentary on Patrick titled Danica was released.

The 2013 Daytona 500 pole-winner will publish her first book, “Pretty Intense: The 90-Day Mind, Body and Food Plan that will Absolutely Change Your Life” on Dec. 26.

Stenhouse, 30, is entering his sixth full-time Cup season next year.

Everyone thought that Danica was more than she was.. Honestly, I think everyone wanted her to be more than she was.

It was fairly obvious from her races in the Busch/Nationwide/Xfinity series that she wasn't adjusting well to stock cars and that her move to Cup likely wasn't going to go well, at least at the start, if ever. Though, that can be deceptive at times. Jimmie Johnson and Tony Stewart never had great success in the lower tier series when they were full time, and they are considered two of the greats in Cup racing..

She had everything on her side, just couldn't make it work.

I feel the same way. Part of the problem is the "empowering women" nonsense that has been going around, especially with the media, movies, etc. brainwashing people into thinking someone is better than they are.
They are not. Not much different than leave no kid behind mindset that allows even the retards to pass each year and eventually graduate like a "normal" person, when they clearly are not.

Everyone is trying to be PC and playing this "make believe" game. Danica is a good driver. But she was never at the same level as the most male drivers.

Now that they have parted ways, the time has come for them to restart their respective engines in their search for love in the fast lane.
