NASCAR Hall of Fame nominee spotlight: Bud Moore

Although Bud Moore is best known in NASCAR circles as a car owner, his racing career actually began as a crew chief. In 1957 he served as crew chief for champion driver Buck Baker.

Moore got into NASCAR team ownership in 1961, and he experienced success soon after his entry into the sport's ownership realm. He won his first two championships in his second and third seasons as a car owner -- 1962 and 1963 -- with Joe Weatherly as his driver.
