Shannon Spake has been reporting from the pits for ESPN’s NASCAR coverage for several years, but Spake is now carrying something extra. Spake and her husband are expecting their first children in January – twin boys.
To assist her in performing her duties through the rest of the season, ESPN and Spake worked with firesuit manufacturer Impact to produce a special piece of apparel for her to wear while in the pits during races. The two-piece suit is equipped with a stretch gusset in the back so that it can be expanded as her pregnancy progresses through the fall.
ESPN’s live coverage of Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Dover will air on ABC, while ESPN2 will air Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide Series race.
Next week, we will have pictures of Spake from Kansas, showing of her firesuit!
