No one can predict where the road of life will take us– not even a man who makes a living maneuvering the turns on speedways. “I can’t believe I’m getting married. If you had asked me four years ago if I’d be proposing to someone, I would have said, ‘No way’” NASCAR driver Carl Edwards recently confided to reporters as he relayed the happy news of his impending “I do” to Dr. Kate Downey,who has transformed in the eyes of the speed demon from a girl who attended the same high school to the woman who will be his wife, Scene Daily reports.
Although not performing one of the trademark backflips which often accompanies his victories on the race track, the broad smile on the face of the recent NASCAR Nationwide Series Hefty Odor Block 200 winner said it all as he spoke about the woman who accepted his October 2008 proposal.
Edwards is one of two drivers racing to the altar. Jamie McMurray recently asked for the hand of his longtime love Christy Futrell during a romantic getaway to the Phoenician Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona.
