I remember Judy Parks in the blue 44 Super Stock. She could hold her own pretty well against the guys.

Didn't she reside in Smithville, TX @ the time?

The first I saw of her was maybe around 84 @ Speed O Rama, she had another car before the got the camaro. Seem to recall her making the trips to TWS as well to run those Super Stock races.

Well just signed on a new house monday so it is not looking good for my racing much anytime soon since i am gonna be here paying for it also trying to buy another shop right now for a pure race shop if that goes threw it would be good then i will have 6 shops and a home garage and as for being careful i will have to have a bomb fall directly ontop of me cause when i was home they put a whole bunch of t walls up for protection witch is pretty kool but it took all the scenery away witch sux cause my new base is built inside an actual oasis and was pretty kool to look at but it is much safer this way cant wait to get home to start racing full time again or well errr uhhh well just cant wait to start racing again and thanx for your concern

Judy Parks is my mother. What would u like to know?

Back then my mother was married to Prentice Parks and together they built a total of 4 racecars in two different classes in a span of about 9 years.

Do you happen to have any pictures of those race cars - and perhaps a shot or two of your mother?

Mother quit driving racecars in 1986. And she and Prentice would separate and eventually divorce in 1992.

Was she married to Don Parks?

Nope not don parks. She was married to Prentice Parks from Smithville tx for 15yrs . They were divorced in 1992 or 93. Prentice died April 2021 I believe. Mother(Judy) now married to Joe JOESEPH for 24 yrs. She's retired from Austin energy and lives with her husband in Lytton Springs,Tx.
