Model Niki Taylor Marries NASCAR Driver

SAN DIEGO (December 29, 2006) — Model Niki Taylor and NASCAR driver Burney Lamar have tied the knot.

The couple married Wednesday before 60 guests at the Grande Colonial Hotel in the La Jolla area of San Diego, Taylor’s manager, Lou Taylor, told Us Weekly magazine in a story posted on its Web site Thursday night.

Taylor, 31, and Lamar, 26, met at a charity event in January 2006, according to her Web site.

“I looked at Burney and said to myself, ‘This is the guy I’m going to marry,”’ Taylor told the magazine.

It was the first marriage for Lamar and the second for Taylor, who has 11-year-old twin boys from her previous marriage to former football player Matt Martinez.

The two divorced in 1996.

Taylor lives in Nashville, Tenn., where she owns a clothing boutique.
