Patrick, physical therapist exchange vows

INDIANAPOLIS -- Although Danica Patrick got plenty of
publicity for her season in the IRL, she certainly doesn't want
much for her wedding.

The 23-year-old driver, who finished fourth in the Indy 500, and
physical therapist Paul Hospenthal, 40, were married Saturday in
Scottsdale, Ariz.

Team spokesman Brent Maurer said Patrick has asked Rahal
Letterman Racing to release virtually no information on the
ceremony. Maurer could only confirm Tuesday that Patrick was
married and that car owner Bobby Rahal was there.

Though she is accustomed to driving at 200-plus mph, Patrick
told People magazine this year that one of her favorite things is
sharing life in the slow lane with Hospenthal and their miniature
schnauzer, William Robert, called Billy.

"She's kind of a TV junkie," who also enjoys barbecuing and
working out, Hospenthal told the magazine. "But you won't see her
watching much racing."

Patrick met Hospenthal while seeking treatment for a hip injury
from a yoga session.
