July 02, 2015

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (July 2, 2015) – The following is a brief statement from the NASCAR Hall of Fame Executive Director Winston Kelley on the passing of Mary Scott.

"On behalf of the entire NASCAR Hall of Fame team, I would like to offer our most sincere condolences to the entire Wendell Scott family on the passing of Mary Scott. Like many racing wives, Mary was not only the matriarch of the family but the foundation and rock of the family. She was a huge part of Wendell’s life, his perseverance and the successes they shared together. She was so proud of Wendell and especially his selection into the NASCAR Hall of Fame for the Class of 2015. Mary will be deeply missed, but her memory and impact on so many will live on forever."
