Michigan Couple Gets Engaged at Bloomington Gold

When it comes to popping the question to your main squeeze there are two schools of thought. The first says do it in a small intimate way that’s special to the 2 of you. The second school of thought is go big or go home. If your plans fall into the latter category, the bar has just been raised thanks to Steve White.

White proposed to his girlfriend Melissa Justice during last week’s Bloomington Gold show at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The 2 have known each other for 30 years, but didn’t get together until 2 years ago. White is a car wrangler for Chevrolet and also helps maintain the GM Heritage Collection. Justice is self-employed cleaning homes and businesses for 29 years. They each have 1 child from previous marriages.

This wasn’t just any old proposal. He did it in Victory Circle at the home of the The Greatest Spectacle in Racing. The same spot where the likes of Foyt, Andretti, Mears, and Unser drank their celebratory milk.

The setup for the big event went like this: White borrowed a C7 Corvette to drive in one of the GoldLaps sessions on Friday afternoon. During staging he lined up at the back of the pack in order to be last out on to the track. It was then Mother Nature interfered with a nearly hour long weather delay filed with soaking rain, thunder, and lightning. When the weather finally cleared the group headed out to the speedway. Once their 2 laps were complete and the rest of the group was exiting the track he headed down pit road, hung a hard left at the world famous yard of bricks, and stopped in Victory Circle.

From there he and his betrothed got out of the car and White popped the big question. And, of course, she said yes. Then it was up to the winner’s podium for some more photos and celebrating.

No word yet on when the big day will be nor do we know if the CorvetteBlogger staff will be invited to the ceremony or on the honeymoon.
