STATEMENT FROM DON SCHUMACHER ON PASSING OF JEFF BYRD -- Oct. 18, 2010

We at Don Schumacher Racing extend our condolences to the family of Jeff Byrd, one of the brightest lights in all of motorsports, in particular as a supporter of the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series.

His remarkable professionalism, sincere concern for racing drivers, team owners and members in all auto-racing arenas, have been hallmarks of one of racing's most savvy, knowledgeable and caring individuals.

Jeff has done an outstanding job at Bristol Motor Speedway and Bristol Dragway for many years, and we will always remember the warm welcome and respect he extended to all of us in the NHRA racing community.

Special people like Jeff Byrd do not come along every day. We will miss him.
