Sam Hornish on standby as Kenseth remains on baby watch


According to sources, Joe Gibbs racing driver Matt Kenseth has a contingency plan for this weekend's race at California as he awaits the birth of his third child.

Sam Hornish Jr. will be on standby for the Nationwide Series race at Auto Club Speedway, and Jeff Burton will be in place in case Kenseth needs a replacement driver for the Sprint Cup race.

Kenseth has not said exactly when Katie Kenseth is due, but he joked several times that he has told her to have the baby on a Monday or Tuesday when he's not busy with his duties as a Joe Gibbs Racing driver.
