Mom Fulfills Dream Of Driving Race Car

Posted: Updated:

DYERSBURG, Tenn. (AP) - Judy Thurmond of RoEllen believes in living life to the fullest.

Daily, she shows her heart for family by serving as caregiver for three of her most precious loved ones. She pampers them with gourmet meals and a laid-back attitude that allows them to enjoy each day to the fullest.

But, as Thurmond focuses her energy on others, her children do their best to ensure their mother finds time to relax and pamper herself, as well.

Last month, they joined together to give Judy Thurmond a very special gift; one that both revved up her engine and crossed an item off of her bucket list.

The 68-year-old Thurmond hopped into an official NASCAR racer and completed nearly a dozen laps around Memphis International Raceway in Millington.
