NASCAR Driver Matt Tifft Gets Engaged on Thanksgiving


Now that the NASCAR season has concluded for 2018, some of the circuit’s top drivers have a little more time on their hands. And for Xfinity Series driver Matt Tifft in particular, he decided to put that time to good use with a proposal over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Matt Tifft proposed to girlfriend Jordan Holt and shared the happy news on his Instagram page. Tifft recently completed his second full-time season as a driver for Richard Childress Racing.

“She said yes,” Tifft wrote on his Instagram page alongside some pics of the happy couple and gorgeous ring. “Can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with my fiancé. Love you!”

His now-fiance also shared photos of her new bling on her own Instagram, saying she was “still so shocked.”

His fellow Xfinity Series driver Chase Briscoe also headed to his social media channels to share the news that he too had gotten engaged to his girlfriend Marissa Cooper. Fans will recall that Briscoe raced part-time this season for Roush Fenway Racing and Stewart-Haas Racing.

“Well two big things happen today,” he wrote on Twitter on November 24. “I am now a proud dog dad to Ricky B and more importantly asked my best friend to marry me! It’s been a good day.”

We send our well wishes for a happy future to both of these wonderful couples!
