But it wasn't for the racers.
William Panaiha and Joy Pilla tied the knot last night in front of family, friends, and hundreds of race fans.
The couple met at the race track so it only seemed approriate that they marry there.
In keeping with the racing theme, witnesses threw chicken bones instead of rice at the happy couple.
It was so touching it even brought a tear to Lugnut's eyes.
