Tiny Lund's Widow Shot and Killed


Wanda Lund-Early, widow of former NASCAR legend Tiny Lund, was shot to death Thursday night at her home in Waynesville, N.C.

Lund-Early was reportedly planning to be in Daytona Beach for the February Speedweeks to receive an award for Tiny from Victory Lane Racing Association.

Details are sketchy, and no further information could be obtained from North Carolina law enforcement officials.

"She was a great ambassador and made a lot of appearances at the legends' banquets and activities," said Buzz McKim, historian for the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, N.C. "She was as little as he was huge and they were a great couple."

Lund died in a 1975 crash at Talladega Superspeedway.
