“How did Cody see you naked anyway? There are condoms under the bathroom sink for free!” Brooke’s mom said, adding she taught her to use the condoms on a cucumber, and explains that Brooke is not pregnant from lack of education.

The couple planned a quickie wedding at their local racetrack, as Brooke comes from a family that prides itself on three generations of racers. She explained the urgency of wedding, as she said she doesn’t want to be fat on her big day.

We find out that Brooke didn’t break the news to her mother, who read it in a text while snooping through Brooke’s phone messages.

On her wedding day, Brooke was nervous preparing, while Cody was laughing and playing foosball with his buddies.

Cody wore his racing uniform while Brooke wore a classic white wedding gown (with no visible baby bump).

Cody competed to win the race, he blew a tire, through Brooke’s car, driven by her father, was the winner. It’s hard for them to celebrate because with a baby on the way, there are so many bills they know they won’t be able to pay for racing in the future.
