Here we are, almost Super Bowl time and a month away from the start of NASCAR racing for 2013, but one of the biggest topics in sports news is about NASCAR drivers Danica Patrick, and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. dating.

A couple of weeks ago, I told you that Danica Patrick filed for divorce from her husband of seven years, Paul Hospenthall. People whispered that she may have had her eyes on someone else. Quite a few sources said it was Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and that the couple had been spending a lot of time together.  Now the news is official and the the two are officially dating.

For 2013 Ricky will be driving for Roush-Fenway Racing, and replacing Matt Kenseth.  Danica drives for Stewart-Haas Racing.  With the two competing against each other, will this effect their racing, will they be afraid to swap a little paint? ESPN talked with NASCAR veteran Rusty Wallace about it...

(For the record, I do not like Danica Patrick, and I think Ricky could do better.  I have met Danica, and do not care for her in the least...not because she is female, but because she has this HUGE ego, a bad attitude, and frankly she's just not that good of a driver. She smiles to her fans and talks smack behind their backs. She complained that people thought of her as a "sex symbol", then posed half naked in a couple of magazines, and stripped down for a GoDaddy commercial, then again complained that she is looked at as a "sex symbol"... I am surprised that more people are asking about her personal life, instead of asking if she is ever going to win something.)
