Oh, By The Way


Maxine Cornwall didn’t dream of her daughter speeding around a racetrack, but she inadvertently helped make it happen. In the early 1960s, Lyn St. James (born Evelyn Cornwall) fell in love with automobiles in the passenger seat of her mother’s car. Maxine, whose mobility was limited due to a childhood case of polio, loved cars and taught her daughter how to listen to an automobile, how to feel its kinks and ride out the smooth spots. Two decades later, St. James became a record-setting race-car driver.
