She’s finally here! I know Casey was pretty anxious last weekend @ Talladega. It’s great that he can spend a few days with Sam & Trish before heading to Lowe’s. Luckily the race is at home so he can come home when he’s done for the day!

CONGRATULATIONS to Casey and Trisha!!! Good thing the race is at Lowe’s this weekend, it will be a little easier for Casey to spend time with little Samantha and Trisha. He will be a fun and wonderful father!!

Congratulations to Casey and Trisha. Samantha Mae is a very pretty name. I think it’s nice he gets to stay close to home this weekend. Maybe he’ll get a win for his little girl.

I’ve got a feeling we’ll be hearing about her having him wrapped around her finger.

Congats to Casey and Trish! This is a great week for her to be born since Casey will have more time at home with her. Maybe Casey can get another win at Lowe’s this weekend for lil Samantha!

Congratulations to Casey and Trish!!! I cannot wait to see Casey being interviewed this weekend. I am sure he is going to have a HUGE smile on his face. Sounds like Samantha looks like him with the dark wavy hair. CONGRATS!!!!

Awwww, I’m so glad she’s here! Casey was so cute on the pre-race interviews last week before Talledega talking about how ready he was to be a daddy.

What a lucky guy for the race this week be at Lowe’s. I bet it would be very hard to have to leave Trish and Sam to go race somewhere on the other side of the country, but now he can just go away for a few hours and then go back home afterwards.

Congrats to Casey, Trish, Papa Roger and Nana Carol and the entire Mears family on their newest addition! Can’t wait to see pictures of their little one!
