NASCAR moms have always been an important part of all the racing families. From their ‘little driver’ learning how to ride a bike to getting a finger stuck in a steering wheel to watching their (grown) child tackle the toughest of all tracks – MOMS have been on quite a ride with their kids as they continue to compete in all three top NASCAR Series.
A special THANK YOU to all Mom’s out there and congratulations on a job well done!
NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Tony Stewart poses with his mother Pam Boas.
He said: “She’s a pretty patient woman. Anyone that could actually raise me and not want to kill me or kick me out of the house has got to be a very patient person. That’s my mom. She’s a very patient lady with a great heart and she’s really good with people.”

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Jamie McMurray with his mother, Sue McMurray.
She told him to… “Live within your budget! I think that was the best advice that I would get. Mom was always very conservative and maintained a disciplined habit of paying all the bills on time. She was a school teacher and always worked hard to manage our family finances. I grew up in a home of modest means, but she taught me to not spend money that I didn’t have for things that were non-essential.”

NASCAR Camping World Truck and Nationwide Series driver Johanna Long with her mother Brenda Long.
Brenda’s race day advice to Johanna: “Don’t ever leave anything on the table. As long as you give 110 percent you will always be able to walk away with a clear conscience knowing that you gave it your all!”
Her best advice? “If you don’t separate your colors you’re gonna end up with a pink shirt” and “Always keep a clean pair of drawers.”
Also, Happy 1st Mother’s Day to ESPN Pit Reporter Jamie Little and DeLana Harvick as well as to ALL Mom’s in NASCAR Nation!
