So how did they meet?

From Norm Clarke of the LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL:

He was making an appearance at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway the day they met. She was working as a promotions girl who handed out brochures.

From Paul Woody of the RICHMOND TIMES-DISPATCH:

Busch and Sarcinella met in 2007 at a Chevrolet event. They chatted, exchanged phone numbers and seemed to hit it off.

They kept in touch as they went their separate ways. She graduated from Purdue University with a degree in psychology. He became one of the top drivers in NASCAR.

She moved to North Carolina, where Busch lives. They became engaged. The wedding is Dec. 31 in Chicago.

More from Clarke:

Their first date? “She came to Texas for one of my races and we went out to T.G.I. Friday’s.”

What a delightful story. Happy for the lovely couple and heartened to know that women like that still exist for American men who are short a passport and Ukrainian translator.
