She is not that tough, actually she is quite cool of a Mom. Except for the last few years, she autocrossed, hillclimbed, road raced, organized events, was treasurer of Philly SCCA and PHA, membership chair of Reisentoter Porsche club.
Actually, I had an awesome childhood with my parents.
I still remember that SCCA stands for See Cruise Crash Again! Not one of Newman's best racing prodigies.
