A love fit for a champion! Austin Dillon, a NASCAR driver, fell in love with Whitney Dillon (née Ward), and their relationship has only gotten stronger with time.

“I think centering [our relationship] off of God is first and foremost,” the race car driver exclusively told Us Weekly in June 2022. “[We] both have a relationship with God and [also] knowing that Whitney reminds me constantly ‘put the phone down, it’s time for family time now,’ [because] I mean, I’m constantly working on either racing or our PBR [professional bull riding] team.”

He continued: “So when we sit down to have time for each other, we’ve been really working on that and just working together and, and pushing each other in, in our careers and what we love to do. And, you know, since we’ve had [our son] Ace, our mind’s really been set on him.”

Nearly a year before getting engaged, the North Carolina native and Whitney got in touch.

“I actually went back for an exhibition race at Boyd’s when Whitney and I were talking, and her dad came with her brother to watch me race, and we had a really good night there,” Austin recalled during an April 2022 interview on Chattanooga, Tennessee’s WDEF News 12. “That’s the night I set the fast time. I took her brother and him in a ride around the track, and that was kind of when I felt like I’d locked in the family. … When I talked on the mic that night, I said, ‘Yeah, I’m dating a girl from Soddy.’ Everybody cheered. It was cool.”

The former Tennessee Titans cheerleader has remained a devoted supporter of her man’s job as their relationship has intensified.

“I always get nervous [watching him compete]. I’m like a high-energy person,” Whitney admitted to Us in June 2022 ahead of the premiere of the couple’s Austin Dillon’s Life in the Fast Lane reality TV series. “My emotions are on, like, 50,000 at all times. So yes, I always get nervous and very excited. It’s an exciting sport and I love that we’re a part of it.”

After some time, the couple added to their family when their son Ace RC Dillon was born in June 2020.

“I would love if Ace was a race car driver and took on the three and really continue the family legacy [because] that’s what it’s all about. It’s all about family at RCR,” the boutique owner told Us, referring to Richard Childress Racing, which was founded by her spouse’s grandfather, Richard Childress.
