Baby born in racetrack's parking lot gets free tickets for life

Mother delivered on way to hospital

A New Hampshire woman and her baby are doing fine after the woman gave birth in the New Hampshire Motor Speedway parking lot.
 
Shawna Arnold began going into labor Friday and she and her boyfriend began driving to a hospital. But when she realized she was about to give birth on the way, they made a pit stop at the racetrack parking lot in Loudon.
 
Arnold tells WMUR-TV that she and her boyfriend delivered the baby, named Katie, in their car. An EMT at the track then came to help, and the couple and the baby were taken to a hospital.
 
Speedway General Manager Jerry Gappens has awarded the baby two tickets to NASCAR races for the rest of her life.
