Max Chilton and longtime girlfriend Chloe Roberts got married this weekend at St Michael’s Church in Betchworth in his home county of Surrey, England.

The likable young couple have been together for years, having gotten engaged last March. They are now embarking on their third season together in North America, as Chilton arrived in the U.S. ahead of the 2015 Indy Lights season with Carlin, where he won his first race on the Iowa Speedway oval in July of that year.

In two seasons in the Verizon IndyCar Series, Chilton’s best runs this year came in back-to-back races at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, first with a drive up to seventh from 14th in the INDYCAR Grand Prix and then leading a race-high 50 laps at the 101st Indianapolis 500, before finishing fourth. He’ll have a shot for his first win at the next 500-mile race on the calendar, the ABC Supply 500 (Sunday, 2 p.m. ET, NBCSN) at Pocono Raceway this weekend in the No. 8 Gallagher Chip Ganassi Racing Honda.

A few photos from Chilton’s wedding are below, which saw teammate Scott Dixon and wife Emma and driver coach Dario Franchitti and wife Ellie among those in attendance.

Chilton then already noted the fun part of married life, when receiving traditional English breakfast tea.

With three races remaining in the NTT IndyCar Series season, Scott Dixon has a commanding lead and history on his side entering Friday’s opener of the Harvest GP at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The five-time series champion leads defending champ Josef Newgarden by 72 points.

Since 2014, the points leader with three races left has won the championship in five of the past six years, including Dixon in ’18.

The Chip Ganassi Racing driver has led the championship standings following every round after opening 2020 with three consecutive victories. Dixon also led the points by 78 points with three races remaining when he won the title in 2008.

Dixon, Newgarden, Pato O’Ward, Colton Herta, Will Power, Graham Rahal and Takuma Sato are championship eligible.

Anyone outside 108 points of the lead after Indy will be eliminated heading into the Oct. 25 season finale at St. Petersburg, Florida.
