Carmichael's Crazy Night

As you probably saw below, Ricky and Ursula Carmichael became parents early this morning when Ursula went into early labor with the twins. When she went into contractions, according to Fox Racing's Scott Taylor, RC was in Orlando. He did press day for Live Nation, then was enjoying dinner with his car racing boss Bobby Ginn. There was a helicopter on standby--Greg Arnet's--in case something happened back home. Well, it did! But there was a storm in Florida last night, and the helicopter couldn't go. So RC jumped in his truck with Taylor and J.H. Leale and off they went on a frantic three-and-a-half hour drive from Orlando to Tallahassee. How fast were they going? Taylor joked that RC's car-racing skills definitely came into play. The cool thing is they made it to the hospital at 2:30 a.m., which gave them an hour to spare. Ursula gave birth at 3:31, and 3:33!

RC is at the hospital right now but is still planning on helicoptering back down to Orlando in the morning and racing the supercross tomorrow night. Ursula is doing fine, and so are the kids. The names? Kadin and Elise.
