grace katherine kenseth has arrived

Matt and Katie Kenseth welcomed their second daughter into the world today! :)

The official announcement from the family:

Matt Kenseth, driver of the No. 17 Crown Royal Ford with Roush Fenway Racing, and his wife Katie welcomed a new bundle of joy into their family early Tuesday morning with the birth of the couple’s second daughter. Grace Katherine Kenseth was born February 22 at 3:49 a.m. EST weighing in at seven pounds and eight ounces. Both mother and daughter are doing well as the family welcomes Grace into the family to join their other daughter Kaylin and son Ross.

Kenseth will be able to spend a few days with his brand new baby girl before traveling out west for this weekend’s Subway Fresh Fit 500 at Phoenix International Raceway. Kenseth has earned top-ten finishes in his last two races at the track as the No. 17 team looks to rebound from a 34th-place finish at Daytona last weekend after getting caught up in a multi-car wreck early in the race.

    So does this mean Ross remains the only boy? Sounds like my nephew!

    My name is Ashley and I love your blog! It’s like no other, it not only talks about racing but about their families. I feel like I know the guys better from visiting your site. I also write a blog, Embracing Anyway, I recently did a review for a Bed & Breakfast in Tenn. and they are currently offering a discounted rate for NASCAR fans for the Bristol race (March 18th-20th). I thought this might be something you would like to share with your readers. All the details can be found here ( but if you have any questions feel free to contact me.

    I’m sorry to post this on here but I couldn’t seem to find your email address.

    Thank you for your consideration,
