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:
Riki Rachtman broke the news on Twitter saying: Hey Ryan Newmans gonna be a papa . I think I'm breaking the story Congrats Krissie
Team Chevy would like to congratulate Ryan and Krissie Newman! Ryan told fans from the Team Chevy stage today that he will be a first time father in 2010! So excited for them both!
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.
On behalf of the entire Skirts and Scuffs team we would like to congratulate Ryan and Krissie!
