Kenseth to have Hornish and Burton on standby in California as he awaits birth of 3rd child

Matt Kenseth has a contingency plan for next week'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.

Kenseth does not have standby drivers for this weekend at Bristol, where he's scheduled to run both the Nationwide and Cup races.
