Two of the most famous names in racing are uniting.
NHRA driver Courtney Force announced her engagement to IndyCar driver Graham Rahal on Twitter with a photo of the couple and her ring. The two were engaged Thursday in Venice, Italy, according to Force's post.
The 26-year-old Force is a race-winning Funny Car driver and the youngest daughter of John Force, the most successful drag racer in history. Her May victory at the Kansas Nationals was the milestone 100th win by a female driver in NHRA history.
The 25-year-old Rahal is the son of 1986 Indianapolis 500 winner Bobby Rahal. He is entering his second season driving for his father's IndyCar team, Rahal Letterman Lanigan. It will be Rahal's ninth season in IndyCar.
The two began dating late last year.
