    The Vanderbosch-Gordon family has two children. Everyone in the NASCAR circle knows Ella. The adorable little girl was born on June 20, 2007, and recently had a hand in designing her father’s car for Atlanta.

    Earlier this summer during NASCAR’s baby boom, Ingrid and Jeff joined the crowd. On August 9, 2010, Leo Benjamin was born. He has not yet made any official NASCAR appearance.

    Ingrid is one of the more low-key wives in NASCAR, but is faithfully by her husband’s side at every race she is able to attend.
