LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Matt Kenseth and wife Katie have a third daughter on the way, due in about three weeks.
The driver of the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota hasn’t lined up a relief driver, as Paul Menard has done this weekend. Reigning NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Matt Crafton will drive for Menard if wife Jennifer Menard goes into labor this weekend with the couple’s first child.
Last week, Paul Wolfe, Brad Keselowski’s crew chief, missed the Sprint Cup race in Phoenix after flying home to witness the birth of his son, Caden Paul Wolfe.
Kenseth has another solution for his wife’s impending blessed event.
Asked whether he had a backup plan, Kenseth quipped, “Not really. I just told her to have her on a Monday.”
