There was a big surprise for a military family on Thursday. James Wallace, his wife and son have a new home in Bolingbrook, and they don't have a mortgage.

NASCAR legend Richard Petty was in on the surprise, giving the family the keys to the house.

Wallace is a marine who served two tours in Afghanistan. Eckrich worked with Operation Homefront to get the family a home.

Petty says it's a way to thank Wallace for his service. Wallace calls it, "Amazing."
