NASCAR Media Tour Notebook: Kevin And DeLana Harvick Expecting First Child

Here are a few notes from the NASCAR Sprint Media Tour we haven't talked about yet:

• Kevin Harvick's wife, DeLana is 14 weeks pregnant and expecting the couple's first child in July, the driver told reporters at the Richard Childress Racing stop on Wednesday night.

• Elliott Sadler will run the Daytona 500 in RCR's No. 33 car with sponsorship from General Mills. Brendan Gaughan will then run the next four Cup races in the 33, which is locked in to each race thanks to owner points from Clint Bowyer's team last year.

• Rick Hendrick said Wednesday he will be "really disappointed" if all four Hendrick Motorsports cars don't make the Chase – and if one of them doesn't win the championship.

• Chip Ganassi ripped his team's performance on Tuesday, explaining the organization's offseason changes by saying the 2011 season was "pathetic" for Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing.

• Trevor Bayne told reporters he was treated for Lyme disease last year, even though there was never a definitive diagnosis. Since the treatment was successful, he believes Lyme disease is what he had.

• Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will defend his Nationwide Series title with a full-season campaign. Bayne currently has enough sponsorship for a partial Nationwide season and Roush Fenway Racing is hoping he can run the complete schedule.

• Michael Waltrip is working on a deal that would allow him to race the Daytona 500, but he doesn't have sponsorship secured yet.

• Kentucky Speedway is spending $10 million to upgrade its infrastructure and increase the amount of available parking.
