NASCAR driver Jason Leffler and his wife, Alison, became parents to son Charlie Dean on August 16 and since then, The couple is going on very little sleep but they love every minute of it.

Everyone keeps asking how much sleep we are getting during the nights,and while the answer is not a lot, Alison and I are enjoying everysecond of being parents. Fatherhood is something that is so amazing it’s impossible toexplain. I keep telling all of my friends they need togo ahead and do it because there is just nothing else like it.

The California native will return to his home state for Saturday night’s race, Camping World 300, and boy is he excited.

I always look forward to the chance to get back to the West Coast andto have the opportunity to catch up with old friends and family. Thistrip will be even more special for me because even though everyonewon’t get to meet Charlie, I’ll be able to show off new pictures ofhim.
