Danica Patrick did something on Wednesday she's never done before.

Patrick confirmed last month that she was dating Rodgers, who broke up with actress Olivia Munn past year. Patrick said. "I've never done that in my career".
"Matt and I are very like-minded to kind of go for things".

"Oh, (expletive), did I just say that out loud?" said Patrick before uttering another curse word under her breath.
Patrick revealed earlier this week that she had a deal in place for the Indy 500, with an announcement set to follow her final NASCAR race this weekend, with sources indicating to Crash.net that a deal had been struck with Ed Carpenter Racing in the team's third auto. I'm hoping Danica has a good Daytona 500 and then we can all get focused on having a great month of May together. Part-time IndyCar driver Pippa Mann ran her sixth Indy 500 last season, finishing 17th, her best finish. She will compete at the Daytona 500 in a Premium Motorsport Camaro. Carpenter won consecutive poles in 2013 and 2014 and has a career-best finish of fifth.
Danica Patrick, right, a noted Chicago Bears fan, confirmed earlier this week that she is dating Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
