las vegas: tony stewart will not be denied

I was OK with not being in Las Vegas this year, which feels really odd to write but it’s true. I guess it’s because I know that I’ll be at more races this year, so it’s not the worst thing in the world if I miss one that I’d normally attend.

With Vegas I felt like I was still having to remind myself of who was in what car, with what crew chief and with which race team. And then there’s all the baby news going on, I can hardly keep up!

DeLana and Kevin Harvick are expecting their first child. They’re having a boy and DeLana is writing a blog about her pregnancy on Kevin’s website.

Krissie and Ryan Newman are expecting a second child, a little sister for their daughter Brooklyn. And ESPN’s Jamie Little is having her first child in August.

Definitely seems like this NASCAR baby blitz isn’t slowing down anytime soon. :)

    I’m so glad I’m not the only wondering the whole race, “now who’s in that car again?” Or what color is this car this week. However, as a fan of turquoise, I LOVED the 17 this week. :)
