“It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Mark Beard Sr., president of Beard Motorsports,” the team said in a statement. “Mark was passionate about racing and the business he built with his family, and even though he will be terribly missed, his work ethic and the kind heart live on with the many people he influenced. While the family requests privacy at this time, they want to reaffirm Beard Motorsports’ commitment to compete in this year’s Daytona 500 where the team will race in Mark’s honor.”
