By a show of hands, who here thinks Danica Patrick's boyfriend keeps doing something wrong, like checkin' out other girls, so Danica is exacting revenge on him by trying to take out his car during races??
Yeah, we don't either! LOLz!
In a weird series of events, though, we wouldn't be surprised if SOMEONE thought that was the case, because Danica started a three-car pile up by colliding with her boyfriend, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., … which is the THIRD TIME this has happened this season!
Maybe the sport just can't keep them apart! Ha!
The crash in Loudon also took out fellow racer Travis Kvapil. The official report is that Danica lost control of her green GoDaddy Chevrolet and slid sideways, colliding with her boy toy and Kvapil. Stenhouse was able to return to the race after repairs.
Here's what Danica said:
"We all bunched up on those restarts, and I'm not sure if I misjudged the braking zone or if they stopped really quick in front of me. It felt like they stopped, and I tried to stop myself from getting in the back of anyone, but I got sideways when I did that. It's so unfortunate I took people with me. I'm really sorry.
‘In hindsight, you want to give all the room you can so that that kind of thing doesn't happen. There were other restarts, too, where I had gotten the rear wheels locked up trying to slow down in time because we all get so bunched up. Cars were sliding across the front of cars. But, at the end of the day, it was me who was sideways, so I'm sorry."
We're just glad everybody is okay!
Though, maybe it's Danica that will be sleeping on the couch instead of Ricky! HA!
