NASCAR Nationwide Series points leader Carl Edwards became a father on Wednesday, his Roush Fenway Racing team announced.
Anne Edwards was born Feb. 24, 2010 in Columbia, Mo., at 12:44 p.m. local time, weighing in at 8 lbs., 4 oz. Carl and Dr. Kate Edwards and baby Anne are all doing well.
The team said Carl and Kate have requested that instead of flowers or gifts, donations be made to the following charity:
Back 2 Back Ministries

Donations will be used for an orphanage in Monterrey, Mexico. Motor Racing Outreach chaplain Lonnie Clouse, a good friend of Edwards’, recently announced he would be leaving MRO to join the Back 2 Back Ministries team.
