Prefering Life in the Slow Lane: Danica Patrick Weds

Racing's leading lady Danica Patrick has topped off her outstanding year by getting married to her beau Paul Hospenthal, a physical therapist and personal trainer, in Scottsdale, Arizona, on Saturday, People magazine is reporting.
It should come as no surprise since Danica told People earlier this summer that one of her favorite things is sharing life in the slow lane with Hospenthal and their miniature schnauzer, Billy. "She's kind of a TV junkie," Hospenthal, 40, says of his new 23-year-old bride who he says also enjoys barbecuing and working out. "But you won't see her watching much racing."
Danica was rookie of the year and held the Indy 500 crowds spellbound when she had the lead, even if it was only for a brief time. Her 4th place finish was the highest finish for a woman ever at Indy, and she told People that she relies on her intuition when racing. "I can see things happening and have time to react to them. I think that is a special gift."
