Who needs right-side tires or a splash of gas when you're making a pit stop for love?

Danica Patrick is dating fellow NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr., she announced Friday at Daytona International Speedway.

"Thanks everyone for all of your nice messages," Patrick wrote on her Twitter page, "and the bump-drafting jokes are cracking me up! Let the fun begin."
