“Glen Wood was a good friend and one of my favorite people in NASCAR along with his brother Leonard,” Foyt said. “I never had as much fun down there as I did driving for the Wood Brothers. Their cars were unbelievable to drive. They pioneered the quick pit stops and were part of the reason Jimmy Clark won the Indianapolis 500 because they pitted him. Their team was the kingpin of stock car racing and I felt honored to be driving for them. My thoughts are with Leonard, Eddie and Len and the entire Wood family.”
