Kasey Kahne, girlfriend welcome baby boy


Kasey Kahne announced on Twitter that he and girlfriend Sam Sheets were parents early Tuesday morning with the arrival of a baby boy.

Tanner Lee Kahne was born at 1:11 am according to Kahne’s tweet.

Kahne joins Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch as Sprint Cup drivers who have become fathers during the course of the season.

Because of Tanner’s arrival, the Hendrick Motorsports driver wasn’t able to make the team’s weekly competition meeting this morning, as noted by general manager Doug Duchardt.
