DEARBORN, Mich. - The following statement is attributable to Edsel B. Ford II, Board of Directors, Ford Motor Company, on the passing of Rod Hall:
Rod Hall was an off-road racing icon and pioneer. From an overall win in the 1969 Baja 1000 driving a Ford Bronco to racing the Baja 1000 fifty times to raising a multi-generation racing family, he is to be honored for his tremendous grit, driving prowess and leadership. Rod holds a special place in Ford Motor Company’s motorsports heritage. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Hall family.
