May 29 (UPI) -- NASCAR power couple Danica Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse Jr., were both racing in Sunday's Coca-Cola 600 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway when Stenhouse bumped into his girlfriend's car, causing her to crash out of the race with fellow driver Brad Keselowski.

Patrick told reporters after the race that she and Stenhouse experienced "a few silent moments, for sure -- or many moments" after the wreck.

"I was upset, and I wasn't just strictly upset at him, but he was there three-wide as part of the issue," Patrick said.

Obviously, like Brad said, he didn't know we were three-wide. He wasn't leaving much room for me and then I didn't leave much room for Ricky. And so Ricky just moved up that little bit and I moved up to make sure we didn't hit, and that was either what got me into Brad or right when Brad was coming down.

But the 31-year-old driver made it clear that she and Stenhouse had put the incident behind them.

"We'll be fine; we're fine. We had a lovely day on the boat [Monday], on the lake, got a suntan. All good," she said.
