    Great racer and team owner, but importantly, PURE CLASS. They don't make very many like Glen and Leonard any more. As much as I hate Fords, I have always loved and respected the Wood Brothers.

    Jimmy Clark would never have won the 1965 Indianapolis 500 without the Wood Brothers!

    Absolutely incredible tidbit of history there. I never knew that Colin Chapman and the Wood Brothers worked together! @nickp mentioned it as well. That's quite an insane thought.

    Godspeed Glen Wood. A pure Racer. A giant among the legends of racing. A foundational cornerstone of stock car racing. And a total class act.

    The checkered flag has waved on a life well lived. "Attention in the pits... All members of the 21 team report to Victory Circle."

    A true pioneer pre-NASCAR to the present. Glenn was an inspiration, a mentor, a great competitor and an icon of the sport of auto racing. He leaves a legacy of milestones that will be looked upon as legend for future generations.
