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!

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadNASCAR

This is so sad!!

A driver named Jason Leffler from NASCAR was killed in an accident Wednesday night after a heated race in a dirt car event in New Jersey.

He was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital. He was 37 years old.

Here's what NASCAR said in a statement:

"NASCAR extends its thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathies to the family of Jason Leffler who passed away earlier this evening. For more than a decade, Jason was a fierce competitor in our sport and he will be missed."

What's even more heartbreaking is Mr. Leffier leaves behind a 5-year-old son named Charlie Dean.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Leffier's family during this tremendously difficult time.

If you're thinking we mean that Danica Patrick was distracted by issues with her boyfriend which resulted in her crashing during the Coca-Cola 600… well, you're wrong! He was LITERALLY the cause of her dangerous collision!

You see, her boyfriend is driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr.! During lap 319, he bumped into her No. 10 Chevy and straight sent her into the back of Brad Keselowski's car! She and Brad sustained significant damage and had to take their cars behind the wall for repairs!

danica patrick indy 500 nascar done forever moving on racing quitting

To Indy or to stock car? That is the question!

Danica Patrick WANTED to try and do the 'double' this year, which would have been both the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600, but that didn't happen. In fact, she decide that she needed to keep to her stock car career instead of trying to split her time between the two types of races. She is a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series rookie, after all!

Here's what she said:

NASCAR Legend Dick Trickle Has Committed Suicide

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadNASCAR

dick trickle nascar suicide dead rip sad driver legend

This is just awful news for the world, especially for the NASCAR community who knew him well.

Legendary driver Dick Trickle, who even used to smoke cigarettes while racing because he was so good, has passed away due to an apparent suicide. He DID leave a note at the scene of his death.

Sources say that Dick had been sick for a while and depressed. Authorities in North Carolina say he shot himself at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Lincoln County — and they even received a call before his death saying they would find his dead body there. He was found next to his pickup.

We have word that his body has been removed from the scene and taken to a nearby hospital.

Such a sad day for racing, and our hearts go out to his friends and family.
