NASCAR Hall of Fame vehicle owner Bud Moore dies at 92

NASCAR Hall of Fame vehicle owner Bud Moore dies at 92”

NASCAR team owner Bud Moore received many honors for his military service during World War II, where he took part in the D-Day landing at Normandy.

Moore became the oldest living HoF inductee when he joined in 2011, but that wasn't what he cared about most. "Walter "Bud" Moore was truly a hero in every sense of the word".

In his later years, Moore worked with many elite NASCAR stars including Dale Earnhardt, Fireball Roberts, David Pearson, Billy Wade, Darel Dieringer, Bobby Isaac, Buddy Baker, Benny Parsons, Bobby Allison, Ricky Rudd and Geoffrey Bodine. "That alone speaks to the magnitude of his accomplishments and contributions to NASCAR as both a championship owner and crew chief". Serving alongside General George Patton, the units helped liberate Europe.

During his 37 years as a vehicle owner, Moore's drivers included Weatherly, Dale Earnhardt, Fireball Roberts, David Pearson, Bobby Isaac, Buddy Baker, Benny Parsons, Bobby Allison, Ricky Rudd and Geoffrey Bodine. Each managed to finish among the top-10 in the championship standings at least once, with Allison the runner-up in 1978.

Moore served as a machine gunner after joining the military in 1943 during World War II and then went on to become a NASCAR vehicle owner and crew chief. "Oftentimes, it's an exaggeration", NASCAR Chairman/Chief Executive Officer Brian Z. France said in a statement from the sanctioning body's headquarters in Daytona Beach, Fla. He won the 1962-63 titles as a auto owner for Joe Weatherly.

Moore's final NASCAR premier series victory came in May 1993 at Sonoma (Calif.) Raceway. Those successes, along with many more, earned him his own spot in the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2011.

"The passing of Bud Moore hurts my heart", former driver Kyle Petty tweeted.

"On behalf of all of NASCAR, I offer my condolences to Bud's family, friends and fans".

Bud Moore is survived by 3 sons, several grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and 4 siblings.
