ORIGINAL POST: Bernece Wood, wife of Glen Wood, passed away Tuesday according to Wood Brothers Racing. She was 90 years old.
Glen passed away in January 2019. At the time of his passing, they had been married for 68 year.
The indisputable fact is that everything our team stands for and has stood for are the values that originated from her and my grandpa Glenn. Plz keep Eddie, Len and Kim in your thoughts.
