CONCORD, N.C. (AP) Danica Patrick admits there are some occupational hazards to dating a fellow NASCAR driver.
In her first column for Derek Jeter's new website, called The Players' Tribune, Patrick says racing against boyfriend Ricky Stenhouse Jr. can create ''Montagues and the Capulets'' moments, a reference to the feuding families in Shakespeare's ''Romeo and Juliet.''
Patrick and Stenhouse went public with their relationship in early 2013 and have had only a handful of scrapes on the track. In her column posted Thursday, Patrick says they get over them quickly. She says it helps that Stenhouse is ''extremely cuddly.''
