Chad Knaus, Matt DiBenedetto spend Sprint Cup off-weekend by saying ‘I Do’ with longtime girlfriends


Many Sprint Cup drivers and crew chiefs enjoyed this off-weekend by vacationing or just taking it easy.

But not driver Matt DiBenedetto and Chad Knaus, crew chief for six-time champion Jimmie Johnson.

Instead of walking down pit road, DiBenedetto and Knaus each spent the weekend walking down the aisle.

DiBenedetto married Taylor Carswell on Friday, while Knaus tied the knot Saturday with former Miss Sprint Cup Brooke Werner.

Johnson tweeted this photo of Knaus’ wedding near Telluride, Colo.

And then there was DiBenedetto’s nuptials.

Of of DiBenedetto’s best friends, fellow driver Alex Bowman, good-naturedly threatened on Twitter to stand up during the ceremony when the pastor asked if anyone objected to the couple getting married.

Which prompted DiBenedetto to respond:

Well, Bowman passed 1,000 retweets, but there’s no report that he lived up to his threat.

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Knaus and Mr. and Mrs. DiBenedetto.
