Letting her hair down: Danica tackles 10 personal questions
It was announced in October that Danica Patrick had been named a "senior editor" and contributing writer for The Players' Tribune, a website launched by newly retired New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter to enable star athletes to show a more personal side and connect with readers in their own voice.
Patrick's first article, published Oct. 9, detailed her 2-year-long dating relationship with fellow Sprint Cup Series driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr., who competes for the rival Roush Fenway Racing organization.
In the revealing piece, Patrick admitted that due to the competitive nature of big-time stock-car racing, and more than one unintentional on-track incident with her boyfriend, she's "sometimes not very happy" with the 27-year-old driver with whom she shares a residence in Charlotte, N.C., and a motorhome on race weekends.
Patrick described her cowboy-hat wearing, country-music loving man as "cuddly," however, and even revealed that the two hope to have children together someday.
In her latest entry for The Players' Tribune, which was published Jan. 6 and can be found here, Danica answers 10 personal questions about herself -- in her own handwriting, no less.
Among the questions: Her biggest nightmare and the weirdest thing she's ever had a NASCAR fan say to her.
It's safe to say some of her responses will surprise you.
