CFH Racing’s Luca Filippi becomes a father, with daughter Mia born Tuesday


New babies have been all the rage in NASCAR this year, but not so much in IndyCar.

That changed on Tuesday with Luca Filippi of CFH Racing confirming via a tweet that he’s joined the new parents club, with the birth of daughter Mia.

The birth for Filippi and wife Elisa was well-timed, as it followed on from Filippi’s career-best runner-up finish in Toronto, after his first oval test in Iowa, and before his next start at Mid-Ohio on August 2 in the No. 20 Fuzzy’s Vodka Chevrolet.

We wish the new parents all the best.
