Drives Ford for Wood Brothers
Rudd, the iron man of Winston Cup racing with more than 600 consecutive career starts, ended his association with Robert Yates Racing last year and is making his debut with the legendary Wood Brothers this season.
Rudd, whose career began in 1977, has recorded 23 victories in his career and grabbed more than $25 million in earnings.
A huge fan of the Washington Redskins, Rudd was a member of the National Honor Society in high school and races a Shifter-Kart in his spare time.
