MOORESVILLE, NC - September 1, 2005 - Wood Brothers Racing learned that Al Rudd, Sr., father of driver Ricky Rudd, passed away late Tuesday following a lengthy illness.

The senior Rudd, a former racer himself, was instrumental in Ricky's career having fielded early entries in NASCAR competition with a family sponsored team under the Al Rudd Auto Parts banner. He also supported Ricky's Kart and Enduro racing.

The team extends its deepest sympathy to Ricky and his entire family.
