After a fast-paced career as a successful race car driver, Danica Patrick has been spending her time pursuing other dreams, goals, and passions.
Patrick stopped racing full-time after the 2017 season but then completed one last time at the 2018 Daytona 500 and the 2018 Indianapolis 500 before completely retiring. She was the first woman to win an IndyCar series race.
Speaking of dreams, Danica Patrick has her own brand of wine called Somnium, which means dream in Latin. She also has her own clothing line called “Warrior” and has written her own book called “Pretty Intense.” Patrick has also traveled the world giving inspirational speeches as well.
Patrick and Carter Comstock
In 2005, she married physical therapist Paul Edward Hospenthal, but the two divorced in 2013. She was in a relationship for several years with fellow NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. After that, she dated NFL quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, Aaron Rodgers until the two split up in 2020.
Now, Rodgers looks insanely happy with her new boyfriend. She posted on Instagram, “Kisses and cardio. Saturday things. Followed by waffles … Also, babe knows more about fitness than me… so I said, you’re in charge.”
Danica Patrick is currently dating Carter Comstock, the co-founder of Freshly. “I had this sort of grand vision for finding someone I could just sit on the couch with and, like, have a glass of wine and just literally come up with any topic at all, simple or complicated … I just always imagined how great it would be to find someone to sit on the couch and talk with for hours, and that’s just what we do,” Patrick told Extra.
The couple has business ties to Beam, which is a CBD wellness brand. The co-founders of the company are the ones that set the lovebirds up.
Danica Patrick on the Track Again
Danica Patrick will be making a return to the track at the Indianapolis 500. She’s going to be the pace car driver for IndyCar’s marquee event.
Patrick will be behind the wheel of the 2021 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray hardtop convertible on May 30. The Indy 500 is one of the biggest races of the entire year, so it’s definitely quite the occasion for her to briefly come out of her retirement for a quick racing reunion.
“I have always loved Chevy vehicles, and the Corvette convertible is such a beautiful car. Maybe they will let me drive it home,” Patrick said to ESPN.
Although she doesn’t race anymore, Patrick still has quite the passion for the racing world. She had been a part of the NBC broadcast crew for this event for three consecutive years now.
