"I feel like I was pretty graceful throughout Ward's career. I don't think I embarrassed myself but maybe a couple of times, but with Jeb, I get furious," she said, speaking of when another driver causes problems for her son.
"It's so much more emotional for me," she said. "I was always a supporter of Ward, a big cheerleader, but I quietly supported him. I stayed with the kids. We were there, we were always cheering for him, but that was his job, his career. Now with Jeb, I feel like I'm involved. We're in the middle of it. He's our child and we've done nothing but this the last four, five years. We've sacrificed a lot."
