Under the Hood:
Feature Interview with Jane Thurmond!
In this episode we had a chance to do one of our favorite things: a feature interview with an OSUSC Competitor. Even better, our first guest for the 2016 season was the uber-popular Jane Thurmond, driver of the red Corvette named ‘Scarlett!’
Jane is one of the type of people who you simply like to be around, because she lifts up the happiness of everyone around her. Her entry into competitive driving is fairly recent – and as you’ll learn in the interview is something she’s embraced fully. In just a bit of time she’s become incredibly competitive in her Corvette – and it all started because of an invitation that Mike Morrow from K&N/Spectre extended to her husband Greg to bring a Corvette to an event. Jane went in his place….and has been wheeling ever since!
We asked Jane a number of different questions in this interview and covered a lot of ground (maybe even more than we expected). Be prepared to be in a REALLY good mood after listening to this interview!
