DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Danica Patrick's now-public personal life is a popular topic at Daytona International Speedway.
And there are varying opinions on how much attention, if any, Patrick's admission should get.
Patrick told The Associated Press she and fellow NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. are a couple, ending widespread speculation about the nature of their relationship. Patrick and Stenhouse waited until the end of a weeklong media tour to confirm they are dating.
Reaction ranged from well wishes to ``oh, well.'' The news also prompted plenty of jokes Friday.
NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer wants to know: ``Who gets the (track) position getting into the corner? `You go. No, you go. No, no, you go.' Who gets that position? There's a lot of give and take in a relationship.''
