Danica and Brad sustained significant damage and had to take their cars behind the wall for repairs, according to Us Weekly.
Surprisingly, Brad took the fall for the crash and apologized to Danica in a follow-up interview. “I was three-wide with Danica and didn’t know it and I cut her off and wrecked her and myself,” he said. “I feel bad for her and I send my apologies to her. It’s just a long night for the Miller Lite Ford. We’ll move on. That’s all you can do.”
Brad finished 29th overall.
Danice Patrick Enjoys Dating Again
As far as Danica, 31, and Ricky, 25, are concerned, let’s hope what happens on the track, stays on the track. The couple has been openly dating since Danica’s divorce from physical therapist Paul Hospenthal earlier this year.
“I am sad to inform my fans that after seven years, Paul and I have decided to amicably end our marriage,” she wrote on Facebook on Nov. 20. “This isn’t easy for either of us, but mutually it has come to this. He has been an important person and friend in my life and that’s how we will remain moving forward.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? We’re happy that Danica is okay!
