Couple uses track day to start a new chapter of their lives

A track day is the perfect place to propose.

Track Night in America is a Sports Car Club of America event series that stops by your local race tracks offering the cheapest way to get on track with your personal vehicles. Usually when you hit a race track people expect what your fastest lap time was? What your top speed was? Not did propose? But one couple did just that.

According to Track Night in America, at a recent TNiA event at Virginia International Raceway (VIR), car enthusiast Jake Nicholas proposed to his girlfriend Kelly Breedlove.

To make it work Jake coordinated his plan with the events Track Night leads. At the end of the event, the plan was for Jake and Kelly to go back on track to find a part that had fallen off his car - but didn't of course.

"His car is 20 years old, and it seemed legit something would fall off of it," Kelly told Track Night in America staff.

Once at the top of VIR's rollercoaster series of corners, Jake pulled the car over.

"I told her last year that I was going to propose in Las Vegas at the 'roller coaster' on top of the Stratosphere in Las Vegas," Jake told Track Night in America staff. "I knew at that point that I was going to propose at the Roller Coaster at VIR. I asked a few friends about possible opportunities before I knew we were going to Track Night. When she signed up, I instantly signed up and started doing some homework. Thanks to a bunch of nice people at Track Night, the opportunity was granted, and I got to express my love for my future wife in a very apt place... at the top of the hill on a 'roller coaster.'

Congratulations to the couple from DriveTribe. Here is to more track days to come!
