Danica Patrick’s boyfriend, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., was the cause of a wreck that took out Patrick and Brad Keselowski during this weekend’s Coca-Cola 600.
Fox Sports reports that Stenhouse wrecked Patrick on lap 319 of this weekend’s race. He bumped into Patrick’s back end and her car then hit Keselowski’s car. By the end, there was a three-car wide wreck.
The wreck wasn’t Keselowski’s fault, but he still took responsibility when speaking to the press:
“I was three-wide with Danica and didn’t know it and I cut her off and wrecked her and myself. I feel bad for her and I send my apologies to her. It’s just a long night for the Miller Lite Ford.”
Keselowski retired at the 32nd position after starting in the 20th position. Patrick retired at 29th place. Stenhouse was able to finish the race.
