Get your “awwww” face ready. A couple from Sebastopol, California (a little town in Northern California that I used to work in) got married at Infineon Raceway today. I’m all for getting married in a place that has meaning for the couple. It’s supercool. Which is another reason why I really wanna see the 10/10/10 weddings at Auto Club Speedway next month during their NASCAR race weekend.
Congrats to the happy motorcylin’ couple!
Sebastopol’s Danielle La Fave and Timothy Duffield enjoyed the ultimate day at the track on Monday – the high-speed couple tied the knot at Infineon Raceway.
The avid motorcycle riders, who met through the North Bay Sport Riders (NBSR) club and spent their first track day together at Infineon Raceway more than one year ago, returned to the track on Monday to exchange vows in the Wine Country Winner’s Circle. The couple enjoyed a morning on track during a Pacific Track Time motorcycle track day before the ceremony.
“We spent our first track day together at Infineon Raceway, which meant a lot to us. It was the first time she had ever ridden on this track, which she had always wanted to do,” said Duffield, 41, the groom.
The ceremony, which began with Duffield and LaFave riding down the aisle on their motorcycles, also included a poem, blessing and a song from friends in the NBSR. The couple traded traditional wedding attire for racing leathers, and were joined by nearly 50 fellow riders for the ceremony.
“It means the world to us to get married here. This is where our relationship started, and there’s no better place to be,” continued LaFave, 40, the bride.
