Camping World Series truck driver Daniel Hemric pops the question
No, it’s not Danica and Ricky but two NASCAR drivers announced their engagement via Twitter and Facebook on Tuesday.
Daniel Hemric, who drives the No. 14 Chevy truck for Bob Newberry, whisked Kenzie Ruston away to St. Lucia over the weekend to pop the question.
Hemric is currently seventh in the Camping World Truck Series. The 24-year-old from Kannapolis, N.C. met Ruston, a NASCAR Drive 4 Diversity racer who competes in the K&N Pro Series, six years ago. The drivers became close when Hemric was asked to mentor Ruston in the Legends Series. Not long after, a relationship blossomed.
Ruston is currently 13th in the K&N Pro Series East. The 23-year-old from El Reno, Okla. has two top 10 finishes this year in her third season on the tour.
