July 16, 2012, , NASCAR.com

Another week, and another new arrival in the NASCAR world.

Ryan Newman and wife, Krissie, on Monday welcomed the birth of daughter Ashlyn Olivia at 12:20 p.m. ET. "Mom and baby are doing well," the Stewart-Haas Racing driver wrote on his Twitter account. The baby joins older sister Brooklyn Sage, who was born in November of 2010.

The Newmans' new arrival comes on the heels of two other births in the NASCAR community. Richard Childress Racing driver Kevin Harvick and wife, DeLana, welcomed son Keelan Paul into the world July 8. Darian Grubb, crew chief for Joe Gibbs Racing driver Denny Hamlin, was late getting to New Hampshire Motor Speedway last weekend because his wife gave birth to the couples' second child, daughter Gabriella Grace.
