Groomsman Kyle Larson and Denny Hamlin Make the Star-Studded NASCAR Guestlist as Danica Patrick’s Ex-Boyfriend Gets Married

Published 10/29/2022, 5:30 AM EDT

Once upon a time, Danica Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. were THE power couple in not just NASCAR, but perhaps in the entire American motorsports landscape. However, after being together for five years, the pair called it quits, and went their separate ways.

While the former NASCAR driver’s love life since Stenhouse Jr. included NFL star Aaron Rodgers and entrepreneur Carter Comstock, and now back to being single, the current NASCAR driver has now finally said the all-important yes.

This is because Stenhouse Jr. recently got married to Madyson Joye Goodflesich in Charleston, South Carolina.

And yes, of course, she is a motorsports fan. In fact, the JTG Daughtery Racing driver described her as someone who likes a lot of the things as he does (bummer!).

“We enjoy a lot of the same things,” Stenhouse Jr. said of his new wife. “We love dirt racing, we love good country music, and we love playing golf together.”

Stenhouse’s wedding was attended by a few of his fellow NASCAR colleagues, including the Hendrick Motorsports star Kyle Larson, Denny Hamlin, Harrison Burton, Myatt Snider, Zane Smith, and Todd Gilliland.

Danica Patrick had expressed a desire to get married to Stenhouse Jr.

Back when her documentary came out during the time she and Ricky Stenhouse Jr were still going strong, Danica Patrick had candidly opened up on how she truly felt for her boyfriend in a long-term sense.

“I have always had people say, ‘You’ll make a great mom someday,’” she said. “It’s definitely more of a thought now – and being with Ricky.”

Patrick had described their relationship as going past the point of a “really comfortable space” in which they were “really happy.”

“It’s really straightforward and simple. And we don’t argue,” she added.
