Jack Roush sees benefit to Stenhouse/Patrick relationship
On Thursday, Roush Fenway Racing driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. said his team owner, Jack Roush, was supportive of his relationship with fellow Sprint Cup driver Danica Patrick.
Thursday night, Roush appeared on Sirius XM Satellite Radio's show "Dialed In" with host Claire B. Lang and offered his take on the relationship which has dominated NASCAR headlines.
"I wouldn't give (Ricky) and guidance. I think the relationship between Danica and Ricky is going to be good for both of them," Roush said. "They both have energy and they'll add to one another's brands and the excitement fans have for them. They will look to see if they are helpful and cooperate with one another or will they be competitive and fight with one another.
"I think there will be a component of interest that will be there that would otherwise not be there that will be to both their benefit."
