Everyday life for NASCAR driver Kurt Busch's girlfriend Patricia Driscoll is often either busy with charity work or enjoying her relationship with the racing veteran. Otherwise, Patricia sits on the sidelines watching Kurt partake in one of the most dangerous professional sports there is. As nervous as watching may make her, Busch's track record places him in the top ten at the end of this season.
While Kurt is busy with racing, Patricia is very involved in the Armed Forces Foundation (AFF), which she is president of. Her hard work has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars that helped pay the expenses for loved ones to visit injured soldiers. The foundation's goals are to not only take care of active duty and retired military personnel, but also to educate the public about conditions such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury and raise awareness. Patricia has proven to be much more than a trophy wife with her efforts and donations for the organization.
Big changes will be coming soon for Busch. Next season he will be changing teams to the Stewart-Haas racing team and will represent number 41, a change from number 78 which he drove in with Furniture-Row-Racing before. After tweeting a "family shot" during his quest for the Sprint Cup and other family pictures we can assume he has a good relationship with Patricia's son Houston, who he calls his step-son. The happy-family vibe that Kurt and Patricia give off could make him not only a statistical favorite, but also a fan favorite for net season.

American Ice Dancer Charlie White has been professionally paired up with Meryl Davis since 1997 but recently it's a member of the competition who has skated her way into his life. Meet Charlie White's girlfriend Tanith Belbin.
Tanith is a Canadian ice dancer with dual citizenship who will compete for the US in Sochi with her longtime partner Ben Agosto. Tanith was described by Men's Health in 2010 as "America's Hottest Winter Olympian" and they weren't lying! Tanith is as beautiful as she is athletic... and believe me this girl can skate! In fact Tanith and Ben have won multiple national titles and boast a silver medal from the 2006 Olympics in Torino.
As for her relationship with Charlie, according to People online this ice dancing duo has been sharing hotel rooms while on tour and "are affectionate in public." It is pretty safe to say that Charlie is smitten with his ice princess as he recently tweeted a picture of the couple embracing at the beach with the subtitle "look how lucky I am!" Yep... my thoughts exactly!
Although Charlie and Tanith will both be competing for the US this winter in Sochi, they will also be going head to head in the race for the gold. It can't be easy competing against your significant other, especially at such a high level, but these two seem to be able to put competition aside and enjoy their time together off the ice.
As a side note interestingly enough Tanith previously dated another notable American skater Evan Lysacek who has also dated Olympian Nastia Liukin and is now the live-in boyfriend of Vera Wang. Wow who knew the skating world could be so scandalous!!! Stay tuned for more skating gossip as the Olympics kicks off in February.

Evan Lysacek, a professional figure skater and 2014 Sochi gold medalist hopeful, has been rumored to be dating several different women over the years including Olympic gymnast Nastia Luiken. However, the latest whispers are of Evan Lysacek's new girlfriend Vera Wang. This scandalous matchup definitely has members of the skating and fashion world alike raising eyebrows.
Yes you did read that correctly the 63 year old newly divorced clothing designer Vera Wang has been seen canoodling with 27 year old Evan Lysacek. The skater has reportedly shacked up with Vera in her sprawling Beverly Hills estate and the couple has been spotted together on several different occasions. Despite the 36 year age difference it seems these two might actually make sense! Just don't ask him what his first 8track was Vera.
So what could these two possibly have in common? Well it turns out that Vera is a former skater herself and she has designed several skating costumes for Lysacek in the past. Likewise, Lysacek is a huge fan of high fashion. When he steps out he's dressed to the nines sporting the latest trends in Men's' fashion. Oh, and let's not forget that he moonlights as a model for Ralph Lauren! I'm guessing Vera might actually be more than just a conquest in Evan's MILF phase.
When Lysacek performs his first program at the 2014 Olympics, if you don't see Vera there in person, his costume will most likely have her signature all over it!
