the great nascar baby bonanza of 2010

2010 was the year of the baby in NASCAR. People were giving birth all over the place and because of this I can’t keep all of them straight. So I’ve compiled a list of the babies that were welcomed into the world this year and the ones that are on the way continuing the baby blitz into 2011.

    Something in the water or a product of the no testing policy.. I dont know but I’ll only be drinking bottled water at the track next time I get to go to a race… Those babies are adorable.

    First, I love the new layout Valli!

    Thanks for the list! I imagine we’ll have more for 2011. It seems like the boom won’t end, not that I want it to.
