Now here's a storyline for Hollywood: A dashing young race car driver on the cusp of winning his first championship falls in love with a beautiful doctor and rides off into the sunset.

No, that's not Cole Trickle, Tom Cruise's character in Days of Thunder — it's Carl Edwards, and he's about to start living the dream.

After scoring a career-high nine wins and finishing second to champion Jimmie Johnson in the standings last season, Edwards married Dr. Kate Downey on January 3 in his hometown of Columbia, Mo.
