Although they've had their ups and downs in relationships, they've made an effort to work on their relationship and made it strong amid how they perform on the track.

Patrick during an interview on February 29, 2016, arranged by sponsor Aspen Dental, said;

"When someone has a good day and someone has a bad day, usually the bad day takes over. I feel like last year we really made a big effort to celebrate the good days more so than come down to the misery level of the other person. We made an effort to do that. It made a big difference."

 33-year old in age, Patrick and her 28-year old boyfriend Ricky Stenhouse Jr. "understand each other," as per Danica. She added:

"Other than a few rare scenarios with other people that are involved in racing, that are both racecar drivers, yes, it would be very challenging for anyone else to understand each other like we do,"
