Racing Great Sam Ard Dies

--

Two-time NASCAR XFINITY Series champion Sam Ard passed away Sunday, April 2. The Asheboro, North Carolina, native was 78.

Ard had compiled an impressive record in the NASCAR Late Model Sportsman Series before that circuit was retooled and renamed in 1982. In the series that today is known as the XFINITY Series, Ard scored 22 victories and won titles in 1983 and '84.

Ard's career was cut short due to injuries sustained in a crash at North Carolina Motor Speedway (Rockingham) in October of 1984. Just 14 laps into the Komfort Koach 200, the engine in Ard's entry blew in Turn 3 and ignited a six-car crash. He was transported to a local hospital where he was diagnosed with a dislocated right shoulder and head injuries.

In June the following year Ard announced his retirement from NASCAR, although he competed in three more local Late Model shows, the first of which he was flagged the winner.

His 22 wins, in the No. 00 Oldsmobile fielded by owner Howard Thomas, came in just 92 career starts and left him with an incredible 5.5 average finishing position.

After his driving career ended, Ard spent six years as a car owner, scoring two wins with Jimmy Hensley and one with Jeff Burton. All three victories came at Martinsville Speedway. Burton's victory was his first in the XFINITY Series.
