FREWSBURG, N.Y. -- Lloyd Moore, a NASCAR winner in 1950 and the oldest former driver, has died at 95.
Moore died Sunday in Frewsburg, N.Y., in the home where he was born in 1912, according to the NASCAR Web site.
Moore won his lone NASCAR title in Winchester, Ind., and finished fourth in the 1950 standings. He drove from 1949-55 in the Grand National series against Lee Petty, Fireball Roberts and other contemporaries.
Richard Petty said he knew Moore from the time he was a kid.
Never miss a local story.
"He was a joy to be around," Petty said in a statement. "Lloyd was a connection to origin of NASCAR. Talking to him was like taking a trip down memory lane, for me, because he raced against my dad."
Moore is survived by his wife of 61 years, Virginia, and six daughters. The funeral will be Wednesday.
