Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Danica Patrick used to be the hottest couple in NASCAR, but back in November, the NASCAR drivers called it quits after about five years of dating.
A few months after the break-up, Danica made things official with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. It may have taken Ricky a bit little longer to rebound, but he and his new squeeze, Brittany Long, seem to be enjoying each other’s company quite a bit.

Great night of racing yesterday, favorite raceday of the year being able to watch races then cap it off with the 600. We had a good start to the race got off for 100 laps then the last 100 the car was on point. Solid 10th. Wore my heart rate monitor last night 😳 she spiked a few times
She looks pretty good next to Ricky’s Fastenal Ford Fusion stock car, doesn’t she?
She may not be as high-profile of a girlfriend as Danica Patrick, but, judging from their pictures together, Brittany definitely seems to make Ricky happy. And, after his dust-up with Austin Dillon at the FireKeepers Casino 400 almost two weeks ago (which you can check out on Nascar.com), you better believe she helped calm him down a bit afterwards.
Best of luck to the new couple!
Looking Ahead at Ricky Stenhouse Jr.’s Next Race
Stenhouse Jr. currently ranks 16th in the latest Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series standings, trailing Kyle Busch (1), Kevin Harvick (2), Brad Keselowski (4), Martin Truex Jr. (6), Kyle Larson (10), and others. The next cup series race is the Toyota/Save Mart 350, which air on Fox Sports 1 at 3 p.m EST this Sunday, June 24.
You know Stenhouse Jr. has to be angling for a top-10 finish in that race, especially after finishing 29th on June 10. If he can avoid any on-the-track incidents, he may have an all-star race ahead of him.
