|NASCAR Star Montoya Welcomes 3rd Child
|MIAMI (AP) -- NASCAR driver Juan Pablo Montoya and his wife Connie have welcomed their third child.
Montoya announced the arrival of daughter Manuela on Monday through his Twitter account.
Manuela joins brother Sebastian and sister Paulina. The 34-year-old Colombian said both mother and baby are doing great.
The birth following a rare NASCAR off week means Montoya will almost certainly be in Indianapolis this weekend for the 400-mile Cup race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Montoya is 21st in the standings a season after making NASCAR's Chase for the championship.
NASCAR is in the midst of a baby boom this season: Jimmie Johnson, Carl Edwards and Elliott Sadler all became first-time fathers this year, and Jeff Gordon and his wife are expecting later this year.
