Bud Moore’s Right Hand Man: A NASCAR Team Manager’s Career at Full Throttle


Greg Moore  Perry Allen Wood


Greg Moore is one of three sons of NASCAR Hall of Famer Bud Moore. Bud is a highly decorated World War II veteran who landed on Utah Beach on D-Day. Greg grew up in an auto racer’s world in which his father’s cars and drivers won dozens of races and back to back championships. Those drivers were Greg’s friends, and two died in racing crashes within a year when he was 6 to 7 years old.
Greg chose racing over college and went to work in his father’s business, staying there for the next 25 years. He worked especially with racing engines and became team manager for such winning drivers as Bobby Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Ricky Rudd and Geoff Bodine until Bud Moore Engineering was sold in 2000. Greg accompanies his father everywhere making personal appearances. His personal recollections of a life that others could only dream of, from childhood to adulthood, give fascinating insight into the world of big-time stock car racing.
