LONG POND, Pa. (AP) — Danica Patrick left the bumpy ride with boyfriend Ricky Stenhouse Jr. on the track.
The relationship is still smooth sailing at home.
Patrick says there were some "silent moments" on the way home from Sunday's Coca-Cola 600 after Stenhouse drove his car into the side of his girlfriend's car and ended her race. It was the first run-in for the NASCAR rookies since they announced in February they were dating.
Patrick says it was impossible to stay quiet for too long since they shared a ride home. She says "we're fine."
Patrick participated Wednesday in the Stewart-Haas Racing testing session at Pocono Raceway.
