CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Kevin Harvick became a father on Sunday, a day after his wife flew home unexpectedly from Daytona International Speedway.
Keelan Paul Harvick was born Sunday in North Carolina. He is the first child for Kevin and DeLana Harvick.
DeLana Harvick had been in Daytona leading into Saturday night's race, but returned to North Carolina for precautionary reasons. Harvick had Kenny Wallace on standby during the race in case he needed to get home.
Harvick completed the race, but finished 23rd because he was involved in a late accident.
