Founder - Glen Wood
Glen Wood founded Wood Brothers Racing in 1950 under a beech tree on his family’s homeplace in Buffalo Ridge, Virginia. He held an astonishing record as a driver and team owner. In 2012, Glen was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame as a driver and team owner. Having built a stable and highly respected race team, he spent much of his later years semi-retired and the day-to-day management of his race team was turned over to his children. He split much of his time between entertaining visitors with his wife Bernece at the Museum in Stuart and gardening. In January of 2019, he passed away at age 93, leaving an immeasurable mark in the NASCAR community and a legacy that will never be matched.

Eddie, the oldest of Glen’s children, began his racing career by working at his father’s shop as a teenager doing odd jobs. In his early days, Eddie did the paint and bodywork on the famous Ford and Mercury cars and later was a chassis specialist. As time progressed, Eddie, along with brother Len and sister Kim, found themselves heavily involved in the day to day operation of the team. Eddie now manages team marketing efforts and other various aspects of operations.
Executive Vice President, Co-Owner – Len Wood
Early on, Len wanted to know how things worked. With an educational background in electronics, Len, the younger of Glen’s sons, began working with his engine-building Uncle Leonard. The elder Woods served as the mentors who instilled knowledge and values to their second generation racers. After years of getting his hands dirty in the engine room turning wrenches, Len was ready to help manage the team. He now assists his siblings in the day-to-day decisions and operations of the team.
Chief Administrative Officer, Co-Owner – Kim Wood Hall
Kim, the youngest of the Wood family’s second generation, began her career in racing at a young age. Along with her brothers, Kim received guidance from the family in helping to manage the team.

She now performs all the duties of team office manager overseeing the complex business operation for the race team.
