"Penske Racing was very saddened to learn about the loss of Jeff Byrd. Throughout his 30 plus years in racing, Jeff was a tireless and innovative promoter of our sport and under his guidance, Bristol Motor Speedway has become one of the world's premiere facilities. Our thoughts are with Jeff's family and his loss is certainly one that is felt far beyond the racing community."
