Paul and Jennifer Menard welcome birth of first child; Matt and Katie Kenseth still on baby watch

Paul Menard won’t have to worry about having a standby driver anymore — well, at least not for awhile.

Menard has had reigning Camping World Truck Series champion Matt Crafton on his speed dial the last several weeks, as Menard and wife Jennifer were awaiting the birth of their first child, Remi Barbara Christine Menard.

The blessed event finally came on Tuesday night, with the proud papa tweeting about it from his account @RCR27PMenard.

Expect Menard to be passing out a lot of cigars at this weekend’s event at Auto Club Speedway.

Meanwhile, Matt and Katie Kenseth are awaiting the birth of their third daughter, due in the next two weeks.

Matt will have NBC NASCAR analyst Jeff Burton on standby duty at Fontana for Sunday’s Sprint Cup race, and Sam Hornish Jr. for Saturday’s Nationwide Series event, in case Matt has to return home to North Carolina for the birth.

    paul Menard is a talentless ass… so who cares…

    Thumbs down all you want, but he doesn’t come across as a very friendly person, and I don’t care about drivers personal lives. They should remain personal, and I personally don’t want to hear about them.
