Kennewick, WASH. - The newest addition to the hydroplane racing community was in the Tri-Cities this weekend. Carson Kelly was born July 15th to Angela Heckard and U-7 driver J. Michael Kelly.
"Racing in Madison was the first race. I was pretty nervous (about a baby on the way)," said J. Michael Kelly. "I told him he better wait. Daddy wanted to be home."
"The following weekend was Detroit," he said. "Once again, I told him he better wait." He did wait. At least until July 15th when Carson was born to J. Michael and Angela Heckard.
"My doctor made sure I was induced on the 15th so Michael could be here, " said Mom Angela Heckard.
So how are the couple adjusting to having a newborn around? "It takes us three times as long to go anywhere," Angela said.
