The focus of Patrick's media visit Thursday was Richard Petty's controversial comments in which he said that Patrick would never win a Sprint Cup race. The couple began dating more than a year ago and were a fixture at both the track and in the driver motorhome lot last year, and sometimes in public.After answering several questions about Petty's comments and her struggles on the track, Patrick laughed and said she much preferred talking about her boyfriend. Except for a minor dust-up on the track, their relationship seemed to have little bearing on their performances as they battled for rookie of the year honors.

While Stenhouse was a bit uncomfortable with all the personal questions, Patrick was downright giddy, laughing and smiling and happy to talk about her new boyfriend. Instead, most were focused on her well-documented struggles last season, when she finished a dismal 27th in the Sprint Cup standings while Stenhouse finished 19th. Though Patrick reveals little about her private life, she has not been shy in talking about her relationship with Stenhouse.
“Anything with legs – squats, jumping and lunges – she kills me. Any upper-body type stuff, I’m definitely more competitive.”For Valentine’s Day, Stenhouse got Patrick a new treadmill. This whole week, I’ve been at the dirt track and it turns out they don’t have a whole lot of healthy stuff there.”Stenhouse, however, said he finds a way to sneak in some sweets and detailed a Krispy Kreme run Tuesday with Patrick and drivers Ryan Newman and Kyle Larson.“We were on our way back, the hot sign was on over at Krispy Kreme so on, so we pulled in,” Stenhouse said.
While it’s not the kind of the gift most would find appropriate for a such a romantic occasion, Patrick said on Instagram that Stenhouse is “a man knows the way to my heart.”Patrick’s dedication to fitness spills over, as one would expect, to her diet, something Stenhouse said he knows all to well.“Whatever she cooks I eat,” he said. “Newman and I, between getting from Krispy Kreme to here, we had a four apiece. She said, ‘I can’t believe you ate three of those.’ She didn’t see me eat the fourth.” Ricky Stenhouse Jr., right, chopped his mullet because Danica Patrick suggested it.
Said Patrick about Hamlin: "He did everything just right. He understands the draft, and the side draft very well, and he had just the right amount of help from behind.
Matt Kenseth was out to a little bit too much of a lead to not have someone get a run on him.
After all, Valentine's Day is sweeter than a tussle with Richard Petty. — As usual, Danica Patrick was surrounded during Thursday's Media Day at Daytona International Speedway.
As one of NASCAR's most popular drivers and somewhat of a novelty as racing's biggest female star, Patrick always attracts attention, and never more than at the beginning of a new season as she continues to make the difficult transition from Indy Car to NASCAR.
NASCAR may have not been a big success for her professionally, but it's most definitely been a huge success for her personally.
