Martinsville Speedway President W. Clay Campbell said in a prepared statement, "I'm saddened at the loss our good friend Jeff Byrd. I've known Jeff well going back to his days with R.J. Reynolds and Winston. He had such a passion for this business back then and was determined to help take our sport to another level. That determination carried over to his leadership at Bristol Motor Speedway. He was a guy that was just always a pleasure to be around. He had that kind of personality. He will be missed but not forgotten. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family."
