Street Stock Class at Kokomo Speedway because his Dad had raced and it
runs in the family and he enjoys it. His first win was that same
year. Career highlights include a lot of wins.
The thrill of racing for Thurman is the
adrenaline rush of going fast. His most exciting racing moment was
flipping 5 times at Kokomo River Speedway and walked away. He's
most proud of his 6' trophy and swell owners.
Thurman's racing hero is his Dad,
Kenneth R Wines.
Of racing, Thurman says, "Don't knock it
til you try it. It takes heart!".
