WERA racer Jamie Lane skipped the May 27 WERA National Challenge Series sprints at Talladega Gran Prix Raceway to be present for the birth of his first son.
Lane, who rides in the WERA National Endurance Series for current overall points leader Team Pennzoil, got the call from his wife Rebecca at 10:30 p.m. on Saturday night, after Pennzoil's first overall endurance win. Lane drove five hours home to Jonesboro, Arkansas and arrived just in time for the birth of seven-pound, five-ounce Samuel Hayson Lane.
Lane was back riding in WERA National Challenge Series sprints the following weekend, June 2-3, at Putnam Park Road Course in Mt. Meridian, Indiana.
