to the Montgomery Family
The MTQRL wishes to extend its deepest sympathies to the Montgomery family on
the Sept. 15th passing of Robert Herbert “Bud” Montgomery, 79 of Seymour, Ind.
If you were around open wheel racing in Indiana in the late 1970’s and 1980’s you
probably saw Bud and his familiar #24 racing both full-size and three-quarter midgets.
Bud passed his love of racing along to his son Tim, who is the current Lawrenceburg
Speedway (and occasional MTQRL) flagman. In addition to his sons Tim and Todd, Bud
is survived by daughters Barb and Debra, 12 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
A funeral service will be held at 10:00 am Thursday at the Voss & Sons Funeral
Service, Seymour, Ind. Visitation will be from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm Wednesday
and from 9:00 am until the time of service Thursday at the funeral home.
