Last weekend, one of Sprint Cup’s best in Joey Logano got hitched. This weekend, one of the XFINITY Series’ best followed suit.

Richard Childress Racing’s Ty Dillon, who recently announced that he’ll be making his Daytona 500 debut in February, married girlfriend Haley Carey last night in North Carolina at the winery owned by Dillon’s boss/grandfather, Richard Childress.

Ty and Haley had been engaged for almost one year.

Along with the spacious surroundings of the winery, a “Just Married” version of Dillon’s No. 3 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet added to the setting as well. The Camaro came complete with the bride’s name over the right-side window.

Here’s some social media from the ceremony. From all of us at MotorSportsTalk, we wish Ty and Haley the best in their new life together.

During its layoff because of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, MotoGP will become the latest racing series to enter the virtual world.

The MotoGP Virtual Race will be held at 9 a.m. ET Sunday, March 29 with 10 riders. It will be streamed on several platforms, including the Motorsports on NBC YouTube channel. Reigning series champion Marc Marquez is among the riders in the field.

The premier class of MotoGP has yet to hit the track this season as its opener was canceled and the next three races were postponed, including the Grand Prix of the Americas being moved from April 5 to Nov. 15.

Several other racing series have tried online racing in recent weeks.

IMSA held a “SuperSaturday at Sebring” March 21 in place of the postponed Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring. NASCAR started its Pro Invitational Series last Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway and will continue Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway. IndyCar kicked off its six-race IndyCar iRacing Challenge with a Saturday race at Watkins Glen International that was won by Sage Karam.
