Bud Moore NASCAR Hall of Fame
Bud Moore Mustanges
Bud Moore Man and Machine
Bud Moore was inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame in Talladega, Alabama on April 23, 2009. Carbon Press is proud to have published his biography to coincide with the induction - Bud Moore: Man and Machine
In the works for over two years, Dr. John Craft has interviewed all of Bud's living drivers and completed a staggering amount of research for this book that covers every aspect of Bud's life: his government-sponsored trip to the beaches of Normandy and western Europe, his NASCAR career, the storied Trans-Am years and a whole lot more. The book is over 400 pages and over 200 images help complete the wonderful story Dr. Craft has woven.
In honor of Bud's induction, we have created a special Collector's edition of the biography that will be available in a very limited edition of just 250 copies. The Collector's edition will contain a special DVD that cannot be bought separately. Each book is signed and numbered by Bud.
In addition, a specially designed stainless steel slipcase with the Bud Moore Engineering logo will protect the book and DVD and make this edition a show piece too nice to hide on a bookshelf.
The Golden Years in Photographs, 1966-1972 Fifty years later, racing fans still talk about the original Trans-American Sedan championship, better known as the Trans-Am. For seven seasons, the series pitted a new generation of American “pony cars”—led by the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro—in closely fought racing at top road circuits across North America. The driving talent ranged from technically sophisticated sports-car driver Mark Donohue to Indy 500 winner Parnelli Jones and all-around driving aces Dan Gurney and Peter Revson.
Bud Moore Right Hand Man
Greg Moore was one of three sons of NASCAR Hall of Famer Bud Moore. Bud is a highly decorated World War II veteran who landed on Utah Beach on D-Day. Greg lived in an auto racer's world in which his father's cars and drivers won dozens of races and back to back championships. Those drivers were Greg's friends, and two died in racing crashes within a year when he was 6 to 7 years old. Greg chose racing over college and went to work in his father's business, staying there for the next 25 years. He worked especially with racing engines and became team manager for such winning drivers as Bobby Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Ricky Rudd and Geoff Bodine until Bud Moore Engineering was sold in 2000. Greg accompanies his father everywhere making personal appearances. His personal recollections of a life that others could only dream of from childhood to adulthood gives fascinating insight into the world of big time stock car racing.
