Danica Patrick may get to speed when she’s out on the racetrack, but when it comes to her relationship with Ricky Stenhouse Jr. she’s forced to take things slow.

The female NASCAR driver, who went public about her romance with the fellow racer in 2013, revealed that she’s ready to tie the knot during a recent on-the-spot interview with TMZ Sports.

Despite Danica’s eagerness to walk down the aisle, it seems her beau might need a lit bit more time to decide when, how and where — or even if — he wants to get engaged to the stunning brunette.

“Maybe someday,” Danica, 35, said, while standing alongside her boyfriend, 29, outside of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

She then added, “I was ready yesterday.”

During the interview, Danica and Ricky also recalled a time when they led fans to believe that they had gotten engaged. On April Fools’ Day of this year, the power couple posted a photo to Instagram featuring them locking lips, while flaunting a ring on Danica’s finger.
