The NASCAR baby boom continues.
Bob Pockrass of ESPN notes that Daniel Hemric is standing by in case Ty Dillon — who is on baby watch — has to leave before the race starts.
Hemric has found himself in this position before. Just last week, he qualified for Paul Menard, whose wife just had a baby.
Since Hemric qualified in the No. 27 Chevrolet for Menard, NASCAR rules say Menard had to start from the rear.
That’s a small price to pay.
