Paul "Bud" Moore (born December 7, 1941) is a retired American NASCAR driver born in Charleston, South Carolina. He was sometimes known as "Little Bud" to avoid confusion with a NASCAR owner with the same name.

Career[edit]

Moore's first-ever race in NASCAR was in the Grand National Series (now Sprint Cup) on August 2, 1964. He started the race in a 1963 Ford, but dropped within three laps due to overheating problems.

His best season of his racing career was in 1965, where he managed to grab three top fives, seven top tens, and even a pole, driving Louis Weatherbee's #45 Plymouth and competing in just fourteen races. Moore's best season in the point standings, however, was in 1968, where he finished 29th in those standings. Bud's final race in his relatively short career was five years after his second to last race, at the 1973 Southern 500 at the Darlington Raceway. He only completed 174 of the 367 laps, retiring from the race due to engine problems in his 1971 Mercury.
