Ricky Stenhouse Jr. beat out his girlfriend Danica Patrick for NASCAR’s rookie of the year award. And that’s a good thing, because Danica Patrick winning the rookie of the year award would be like Hawk Harrelson winning a Ford C. Fricke award. Or Reilly O’Toole winning the Heisman Trophy. Or Katy Perry or Jimmy Buffett winning any award related to music.
“Battles are tough, especially when you are going against your girlfriend,” Stenhouse said about the race with his girlfriend Danica Patrick.
