Danica Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. are no longer dating

Danica Patrick right talks with Ricky Stenhouse Jr before qualifying for Saturday's NASCAR Sprint Cup series auto race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte N.C. Danica Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. have

Danica Patrick probably won't be at as many NASCAR races as we were expecting in 2018. Danica Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. have ended their almost five-year relationship.

The soon-to-be retired NASCAR driver and Stenhouse, a fellow circuit star, have called it quits after five years together, Patrick's rep confirmed Monday, via ESPN. Her initial talks with Chip Ganassi Racing about racing for them in the two races recently stalled, leaving Patrick without any obvious ride.

At times, the NASCAR Cup Series has seen some odd bedfellows, both on and off the track.

Patrick, 35, and Stenhouse, 30, began dating before their rookie years in the Cup Series in 2013. The 2018 Indianapolis 500 will be her final auto race before she retires. They had been married for seven years and had no children. Patrick announced in November 2012 that she planned to divorce her then-husband Paul Hospenthal, and their divorce was finalized in April 2013.

Rodgers salutes Celtic as record run ends
In those 69 games, Celtic scored an outrageous 197 goals - at an average of 2.9 goals per game . Celtic were thumped 4-0 by a rampant Hearts at Tynecastle.

Stenhouse made the NASCAR playoffs for the first time in 2017 and will continue racing for Roush Fenway Racing next season. Her full-time career ended at the end of the 2017 season after she parted ways with Stewart-Haas Racing.

With Patrick being the first female to compete long-term in NASCAR, this provided the first opportunity for two drivers within the sport to be dating at a high level.
