Whilst the wedding might have been one of the happiest moments of Patrick’s life, the aftermath seems to be anything but happy.
Unconfirmed reports are saying that Tony Stewart was already unhappy with Patrick this season because of her performance and the way that she raced Stenhouse Jr. Stewart felt that Patrick cut Stenhouse more slack on the track than she did her Stewart-Hass teammates.
As one of NASCAR's most popular drivers and somewhat of a novelty as racing's biggest female star, Patrick always attracts attention, and never more than at the beginning of a new season as she continues to make the difficult transition from Indy Car to NASCAR.
But Patrick's media appearance this year was quite different than a year ago.
Although there is no official word as to why they chose to tie the knot when they did, one would have to assume that they figured there wasn’t any reason to put it off any longer.
Now that the couple is married it might be safe to say that she will only be cutting Stenhouse more slack on the track.
Stenhouse aside, Patrick’s perception as the weakest link on the team has only made this decision easier for Stewart and company.
Stenhouse, with his hood knocked in and limited visibility, then smashed into Patrick's car as he tried to drive away from the accident. “I tried to look over the hood, and I couldn’t see and all of a sudden I drilled her, which sucks for her.
“She obviously didn’t seem like she had much damage until I tore the whole side of the car off.
“He got me 18 tin cans of Godiva dark chocolate for Valentine’s Day,” Patrick said with a smile.
