The Henry Ford

Formed in 1950 in Stuart, Virginia, Wood Brothers Racing became the oldest active NASCAR team in 2009. What began as a weekend hobby for brothers Glen, Leonard, Delano, Clay and Ray Lee Wood evolved into one of racing's most storied squads, noted for quick, rehearsed pit stops and exclusive use of Ford Motor Company cars -- most wearing the number 21.
