Danica and Ricky make an All-Star voting video
Question of the Day
TALLADEGA, ALA. (AP) - Never mind how Danica Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. race each other. The burning question right now is how they are voting.
With polling open for the fan vote for this month's Sprint All-Star Race, the couple made a light-hearted video in which Patrick encourages her boyfriend to vote for her. As soon as she heads off to practice, Stenhouse votes for himself.
Patrick and Stenhouse are battling each other for Sprint Cup rookie of the year honors, and because both are winless in the Cup Series, they need to either race their way into the All-Star event or get the fan vote. Voting is open on NASCAR's website and the NASCAR mobile app until 5 p.m. of the May 18 race.
The video was collaboration between her sponsor Go Daddy and Sprint, and the brainchild of publicist Joe Crowley.
"It was a clever little script, so we shot it in a matter of about 20 minutes," Patrick said. "Obviously, we both want to be in the race and to try to create a little bit of buzz to get people to go vote and have some fun with it. We thought that was fun. I would love to be in the race and I think more than anything you want to entertain your fans of course. I hope I can be in the race to do that."
It wasn't the first promotional work the couple has done together.
"We've done stuff on camera before," she said. "We shot stuff for Nationwide and some other things together. It wasn't the first time, but I think it's clever and cute for the both of us. I think I would vote for him, I like watching Ricky race."
