Born in Beloit, Wisconsin, USA.
She is the most successful woman in the history of American open-wheel racing. Her win in the 2008 Indy Japan 300 is the only women's victory in an IndyCar Series race, and her third place in the 2009 Indianapolis 500, the highest finish there ever by a woman. In 2013, she became the first female to win a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series pole, turning in the fastest qualifying lap for the Daytona 500.

Patrick started in kart racing and later raced in Formula Ford in the United Kingdom before returning to the United States and moving up to IndyCars. She was named the Rookie of the Year for both the 2005 Indianapolis 500 and the 2005 IndyCar Series season. She holds the IRL record for most consecutive races running at the finish, as of October 2, 2011, she had completed 50 consecutive races.

On January 24, 2013, it was revealed that Patrick was dating 2-time Nationwide Series Champion, and fellow Sprint Cup Rookie of the Year candidate Ricky Stenhouse, Jr.
