2010 Martinsville Mar Ryan Newman in car Chevy Day at the Brickyard is one of the most popular fan events in the sport. Fans can head over to Indianapolis Motor Speedway on the Friday before NASCAR’s Brickyard 400 for a day of autograph and Q&A sessions with the Team Chevy drivers.

Two years ago Casey Mears made the announcement from the Chevy stage that he was expecting his first child.

Today, in similar fashion Ryan Newman and his wife Krissie announced that they were expecting their first child. The announcement was confirmed on the Team Chevy Facebook page:

The Newmans join a long line of recent and upcoming births in the sport of NASCAR. Earlier in the month Jimmie Johnson and wife Chandra welcomed a daughter and just last week Juan Pablo Montoya and his wife Connie welcomed their third child.
