NHRA Top Fuel Dragster driver Alex Laughlin is now engaged. He proposed to his frictions Cassie in Hawai’i.
He posted a video of the proposal in front of a waterfall on one of their trips on the island.
“I flew into Maui last week with my girlfriend and now I’ll be leaving with my FIANCÉ!!!,” he said in the post. “On Saturday, we drove the road to Hana, hiked through the rainforest to secluded waterfalls, and there I asked her to marry me. I met Cassie towards the end of an awful year in 2020. When I think of “2020”, I don’t think at all about the hard times. Instead, it’s tied to meeting the love of my life and the start of a new chapter. She is without a doubt my person and absolute soulmate. We joke about how unfair it is to the rest of the world because there’s no way any other relationship and bond is so strong. Cassie is 28 years old and comes with a little girl, Emma, whom I’ve had the amazing opportunity to become a father figure for.

“It’s never been public knowledge but I was adopted the day I was born and I feel this is part of my way to repay the universe and raise this little girl as my own. It’s a beautiful story and it’s just beginning. Also, she said YES!!!”

At this time, Laughlin is not entered into any of the events through the Mile-High Nationals. That can always change as he and Scott Palmer will have until the Monday before the national event to enter into the mix.
