"Our hearts go out to Lesa, her son Ben, and also to the other families affected by this tragedy. It's just so hard to fathom right now. I had the great privilege to spend time with Lesa and Bruce at several dinners and events in recent years and I appreciated Bruce's insight and honesty about family and the motorsport business. For the France family, I think it's an understatement to say how difficult this is so shortly after the death of Bill France, Jr."

Dan Davis, director, Ford Racing Technology

"All of us at Ford are stunned by this tragedy. And our thoughts and prayers go out to all of the families involved in both Daytona Beach and Sanford. Bruce was often overlooked as a valued insider within the France family, but those of us who were lucky enough to get to know him knew the important role he played as a father to Ben, and as a husband and trusted partner to Lesa."
