If there’s a driver for whom Father’s Day will have a special meaning this weekend, it’s newly minted father David Ragan, pilot of the No. 34 Front Row Motorsports Ford.

On Wednesday, Ragan’s wife, Jacquelyn, gave birth to the couple’s first child, a baby girl named Julia, who weighed 7 pounds, 1 ounce and was 20 inches long.

Both mother and child are said to be doing well.

Friday morning, the driver was back at work at Michigan International Speedway, site of Sunday’s Quicken Loans 400.

Congrats to the Ragan family on the new addition.
