Last Lap: Danica Patrick Is Now Legally “Single”

No, she hasn’t broken things off with Ricky Stenhouse Jr. However, news surfaced today that her divorce from Paul Hospenthal was finalized last week … making her legally single (but probably not looking to mingle). The Sporting News has more on the story.  

In other news, Kevin Harvick was in Harrisburg, PA for a charity softball game between employees of Dover International Speedway and Pocono Raceway. It also happened to be the birthday of Pocono Raceway President & CEO Brandon Igdalsky. So what do you get a guy who already has his own racetrack?

But Harvick wasn’t done. Later, he showed up at Metro Bank Park to take in a Harrisburg Senators game. When the weather wouldn’t cooperate, Harvick did his best Rick Dempsey impersonation to earn some money for charity.

All in a days work. Here’s what else is buzzing this afternoon in your Last Lap for Thursday, April 25th.
