Wood Brothers Racing is an American auto racing team that competes in the NASCAR Sprint Cup, Nationwide, and Camping World Truck Series. The team was formed in 1950 by the sons of Walter and Ada Wood, thus the Wood Brothers. The Wood Brothers merged with Tad and Jodi Geschickter's JTG Racing in 2006 to increase their competitiveness and bring about sponsorship but separated for the 2008 season. The Wood Brothers Racing Team holds the unique distinction of being the oldest active team in NASCAR, having fielded cars since 1950. They are known for their long relationship with Ford Motor Company, and the long standing use of number 21 on their main car, with gold coloured decals. For the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup season, the Wood Brothers car #21 is the Motorcraft Ford Fusion part-time entry, driven by Trevor Bayne. Bayne won the 2011 Daytona 500, bringing the Wood Brothers their first victory since 2001, and becoming the youngest driver ever win the Daytona 500 at the age of 20 years and one day.
