Statement from Edsel B. Ford II on Bud Moore

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.


“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.”
