Glen Wood, el miembro del Salón de la Fama, quien ayudó a forjar la leyenda del equipo Wood Brothers Racing, murió el viernes a los 93 años y de inmediato la familia NASCAR se volcó a las redes sociales para compartir mensajes en su honor.
Glen Wood sure lived a full life, a remarkable journey. His contributions to motorsports are tough to measure. My thoughts are with my dear friend, his brother Leonard and the rest of the family.

Mr. Glen was a true pioneer for all areas of motorsports. It still amazing me all the consecutive years he made the trip to @DISupdates for Speedweeks. He started going when they were racing on the beach! #RIPGlenWood https://t.co/dXb66pK7iA
