‘He’s just as cute as a bug’: 87-year-old NASCAR fan gets her wish to meet Jeff Gordon

87-year-old Barbara Yocum is a big NASCAR fan … and an even bigger Jeff Gordon fan. 

Thanks to the non-profit group Wish of a Lifetime – an organization that grants wishes to senior citizens – Yocum got the chance to meet and speak with her favorite driver.

Said Yocum to ABC News, "He’s just as cute as a bug. I’m 87 and I keep very busy here where I live. I call bingo and do a lot of things, I try and stay young that way."
