Glen Wood has passed away

Sad news coming out of NASCAR today as Glen Wood, the oldest living member of the NASCAR Hall of Fame has passed away.  Glen died earlier this morning.  He was 93.

Glen was from Stuart, Virginia, and he and his brother Leonard built a racing empire.  Wood Brothers Racing has 99 victories in more than 1500 starts in NASCAR's top series to their credit.  In 1998, Glen was named one of NASCAR's 50 Greatest Drivers, and of the 50 drivers on that all-star list, 20 of them drove for Wood Brothers Racing at one point in their career, including Glen.  

Glen also had a great track record at Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, where he earned the nickname "Master of the Madhouse."  He was Bowman Gray's Modified Champion in 1954 and 1961.  In 1996, he was inducted into the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame, and was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2012.

Needless to say, tributes are pouring in throughout the NASCAR community from Dale Jr, Tony Stewart, Darrell Waltrip, Dale Jarrett, Jeff Burton, and more.  See below.
