The professional driver left the Chicagoland Speedway suddenly for a different kind of race against time. Fortunately, he made it home in time to be there for the birth of his daughter, Eliza Grace. 

He even had time to send out a tweet in support of his replacement, Ty Dillon, while waiting in the delivery room.

"Cheering on my guys and today, definitely a different view than I'm used to!" he added. 

The Smiths also have a one-and-a-half-year-old son, Rhett Lee.
