Bud Moore did it all in motorsports as a crew chief and car owner, winning at the highest levels in NASCAR and SCCA with Ford during a career that landed him in the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Moore, a Spirit of Ford Award recipient, passed away earlier today. Here is a statement from Edsel B. Ford II, Member of the Board of Directors, Ford Motor Company.
STATEMENT FROM EDSEL B. FORD II ON BUD MOORE:
"All of us involved in Ford's racing program mourn the passing of Bud Moore. He embodied the true meaning of the word hero, from storming the beaches of Normandy during D-Day in World War II to working his way up to the top levels of both the SCCA and NASCAR as a championship car owner. Bud changed the lives of countless drivers and crew members for several decades on his way to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, but he was a humble, simple man who never forgot his South Carolina roots. A loyal Ford man and a man of honor. We send our deepest condolences to his sons Greg, Daryl and Brent."
