Paul Menard’s wife gives birth

For those wondering, the wife of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Paul Menard has given birth to their first child.

Remi Barbara Christine Menard was born Tuesday night and weighed 8 lbs 9 oz.

Paul currently sits 17th in the point standings with a best finish of third at Bristol.

Matt Crafton had been the standby driver for Menard, had he needed to leave a race. That obviously is unneeded going forward.
