READING, PA - For decades the Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains have been a popular wedding destination for couples in love.

Eddie Hill will give the bride away. Ercie Hill will serve as Matron of Honor, with the members of Team Pennzoil as groomsmen. Racers for Christ, Reverend Ken Owen will marry the couple.

"This is the 3rd time we have had a wedding in our pit area," said Ercie Hill. "Once in Virginia and last year here in Reading. Kathleen and Phillip have been friends and fans of ours for many years. We are honored that they thought enough of us, that they would want to share their special day and start their life together here with our team. I don't know why people want to get married here, but we are extremely flattered that they do. I hope it's our strong marriage that has inspired other to tie the knot. What ever it may be, we are tickled to death, and hope it continues."

On Saturday, at 11:00 AM, there will also be a surprise engagement happening in the Team Pennzoil pit area.
