Less than a month after tying the knot, longtime couple Brian Scott and Whitney Kay will be facing their first Daytona 500 on Sunday.
Scott and Kay were married on January 25 in Scott’s home state of Idaho, according to Devyn Sitler of Fox Sports. It was a nervous day for Scott, who couldn’t believe he was finally marrying his longtime girlfriend.
Today is the day, what a mix of nerves & emotions. Very excited to be marrying such an amazing woman & begin our lives together @whitneykay_— Brian Scott (@bscottracing) January 25, 2014
While not exactly the ideal weather for trudging around in a bridal train, the snow did make for some striking wedding shots.
Fortunately, the newlyweds were able to escape the frigid temperatures and take a honeymoon trip to the opposite of Idaho—Tahiti and Bora Bora.
Looks awful, right? Who’d want to leave the frozen tundra of the Northwest to vacation in sunny French Polynesia?
Just the worst.
The honeymoon is over, however, and Scott’s attention has returned to racing. He’s taken his qualifying runs at Daytona and will be sitting in the 12th-place starting position next to Josh Wise on Sunday.
We can only presume Kay will be on hand for the big race. The two were recently seen on the track at Daytona holding their young daughter.

Yup, Scott and Kay are ready for some racing, and what better way to commemorate their marriage than with a big win at Daytona?
