Danica to DW: If Ricky popped the question right now, I'd say yes

BY Andre Vergara • April 12, 2015

Life is good for Danica Patrick.

She recently celebrated her 33rd birthday, she's challenging for a Chase spot, her sponsors are happy, she's happy with her Stewart-Haas Racing team and even happier with her boyfriend, fellow driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

So happy, in fact, that when Darrell Waltrip asked what she'd say if Stenhouse proposed right now, she said "Yes!"

Watch the complete interview in the video above.

Danica also discussed her temper, which she showed Denny Hamlin and Alex Bowman earlier this season, but says she's getting better at controlling.

"I learned that when I get mad it would take away from driving a little bit and I'd make more mistakes and/or not be focused as much," she told DW.

And her future at SHR?

"They care like family. I'd love to keep doing what I'm doing," said Patrick, whose contract is up after this season.

Even her pup Dallas, which has inspired a stuffed animal toy, got some love from DW — which prompted Patrick to admit she's tried dog treats.

"They're terrible," she said.
