Matt Kenseth and wife Katie welcomed their third daughter to world on Tuesday evening, Joe Gibbs Racing has announced.

Clara Mae Kenseth was born March 25 at 7:39 p.m., weighing in at 8 pounds, 5 ounces. Both mother and daughter are healthy and doing well. Clara Mae joins the couple's other daughters Kaylin and Grace, along with son Ross from a previous relationship.

Kenseth, who drives the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota Camry, will spend some time at home before traveling to Martinsville Speedway this weekend for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series STP 500 event.

Matt Kenseth had Sam Hornish Jr. on standby at Auto Club Speedway in case Katie went into labor. Hornish was not needed for Kenseth, but he did fill in for fellow JGR driver Denny Hamlin.
