One of NASCAR's power couples is no longer a couple.

Danica Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. have split as a couple after almost five years.

In a recent EPIX documentary titled Danica, Patrick opened up about her relationship with Stenhouse Jr. and even expressed her desire to get married and have kids.

TMZ reports that Patrick said in July she "was ready yesterday" to be engaged, but that Stenhouse Jr. had not proposed yet.

While there are no details around the cause of the split, rumors of a breakup began swirling when Stenhouse Jr. showed up at NASCAR's annual awards on November 30 without his famous lady as his date. She was previously married to Paul Hospenthal, a marriage that ended after seven years.
