NEW YEAR'S EVE WEDDING FOR DALE JR.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. announced on Twitter that he married longtime girlfriend Amy Reimann on New Year's Eve.
The ceremony took place in front of friends and family in Lexington, N.C., at Childress Vineyards, owned by NASCAR race team owner Richard Childress.
Earnhardt, 42, and Reimann, 34, had dated since 2009 and announced their engagement in June 2015.
"Happily married!!! What an amazing experience. Looking forward to the rest of our lives," Earnhardt posted on Twitter on Sunday.
Other NASCAR drivers attending included Danica Patrick, who posted on Instagram that she caught the bouquet; Ricky Stenhouse, Patrick's boyfriend; Kyle Busch; Denny Hamlin; and Martin Truex.
Earnhardt, who missed 2016's last 18 races after suffering a concussion in a crash at Michigan, has been cleared to resume racing when the 2017 season begins at the Daytona 500 next month.
Special goal in Arsenal win
With Alexis Sanchez's cross floating into the penalty area behind him, Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud had only one choice: a back-heeled overhead flick kick.
"I was a bit lucky, but it was the only thing I could do," Giroud said.
The ball hit the underside of the crossbar, came down and went over the line to produce an exceptional goal in host Arsenal's 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace in the English Premier League.
The win moved Arsenal above Manchester City into third place, nine points behind leader Chelsea. Tottenham also took advantage of City losing at Liverpool on Saturday by beating host Watford 4-1 to go into the fourth Champions League place.
