LAS VEGAS -- We have a doozy of a story brewing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series this season, something not even Hollywood script writers could have dreamed up. Just before Valentine’s Day, there’s love in the air between two drivers.

When I heard Danica Patrick was getting a divorce, my first thought was ‘good for her.’ But who knew she had allegedly been ‘dating’ fellow Nationwide series driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. for the previous seven months?

The storyline of fellow Cup drivers dating has never been seen before. We saw Cha-Cha Muldowney get caught up with a fellow driver in her early NHRA days, but nothing even close to matching this type of drama at the highest levels of NASCAR.

With social media, the Internet and America falling in love with tabloid TV shows, this is going to be huge.

What makes it even better is that Patrick and Stenhouse Jr. will be racing each other for 2013 Rookie of the Year honors. Will their inevitable disputes be taken out on the track? Will Stenhouse Jr. earn some street credibility for capturing such a prize, or will he be a marked man?
