New Hampshire Motor Speedway: Danica Patrick Causes Boyfriend to Crash

Well this is certainly going to make the next date night a bit awkward. Danica Patrick caused a three-car crash in the Camping World RV Sales 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Sunday, a mini-wreck that included her boyfriend Risky Stenhouse. The collision also involved driver Travis Kvapil.

Patrick spoke about the incident after the race (via Fox Sports):

What it felt like was either I misjudged the braking or everyone jammed up a little bit. I got sideways trying to slow down so that I didn’t drive up into the back of anyone. I just got sideways and there is nothing you can do. The worst part is that you know obviously I didn’t want to take anybody with me. I feel bad, what can I say. We were having a reasonable race and just didn’t mean to do it.

Patrick only complete 237 laps in the race and ended up finishing in 37th.

This is not the first time the couple has had a run-in on the track. Back in May, Stenhouse bumped Patrick at the Coca-Cola 600.
