IT'S A BOY!
Congratulations to Casey and A.J. Foyt IV on the birth of their son Lockey James Foyt who was born at 1:21 p.m. on Monday, July 16 in Indianapolis. The baby weighed 7 lbs. 15 oz. and measured 20 in. Lockey (or maybe 'L.J'.?) is the couple's second son with A.J. Foyt V born nearly two years ago on Sept. 18, 2010.
The baby is named after his grandfather Jim Irsay, owner of the Indianapolis Colts, and A.J. IV's great-great-grandfather's brother Lockey Foyt. In the AJ Foyt Racing shop there hangs a sepia-colored photo of the Foyt Bros. Garage with a photo of A.J. Foyt's grandfather Tom Foyt and his two brothers, Willie and Lockey, standing in front of the garage in the early 1900s. The couple liked the name Lockey and decided to name their son after his great-great-great-great-uncle.
The baby is the fourth grandchild for Irsay and the sixth great grandchild for A.J. Foyt. His granddaughter (and A.J. IV's sister) Tonia Poe gave birth to a son -- Monte Joseph Poe - earlier this year.
