John Holman was considered the mastermind salesman and business manager of the famed Holman-Moody ownership duo. His foresight for the business aspect of NASCAR paired with competition-minded Ralph Moody’s mechanical and racing insights formed the foundation of a formidable—and legendary—race team. Holman-Moody won back-to-back championships from 1968-1969 with the “Silver Fox,” David Pearson. In those two seasons, Pearson combined for an incredible 27 victories. The duo also powered Mario Andretti to victory in the 1967 Daytona 500. Some of the sport’s most legendary figures piloted cars owned by Holman-Moody Racing, including NASCAR Hall of Famers Joe Weatherly, Fred Lorenzen, Fireball Roberts, Bobby Allison and Pearson. Overall, the Homan-Moody partnership earned 96 wins and 83 poles in 525 premier starts.
