CONCORD, N.C. (July 23, 2003) - A statement from H.A. "Humpy" Wheeler, president and general manager of Lowe's Motor Speedway, concerning the death of longtime public relations practitioner and motorsports historian Bob Latford follows:

"Bob had a thorough knowledge and in-depth appreciation of our sport's history. He was a valuable resource in retrospect of that history. As a public relations practitioner, he understood what the media needed and provided it in a concise, accurate manner. His passing leaves a giant void that connects our sport's past to the present. My condolences go out to his wife, Leslie, and their family."
