Racer Jeff Gordon, wife expecting a baby

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) - Jeff Gordon says his wife is expecting a baby boy.

Gordon made the announcement on his Web site Tuesday. It will be the second child for the four-time NASCAR champion and his Belgian wife, Ingrid.

Gordon's daughter, Ella, will be 3 in June.

Gordon is part of a baby boom this season in NASCAR. Elliott Sadler and Carl Edwards became first-time fathers last month, and four-time defending champion Jimmie Johnson is expecting the birth of his first child in July.

Juan Pablo Montoya's wife is expecting their third child in July.
