STATEMENT FROM DALE EARNHARDT JR. ON THE PASSING OF NASCAR VICE CHAIRMAN, BILL FRANCE JR.

"On behalf of everyone at JR Motorsports, we are deeply saddened by the loss of Mr. Bill France, and want to extend our condolences to Betty Jane, Brian, Lesa, Jim, and the entire France family. Mr. France was the backbone of our sport. He was a true friend to the Earnhardt family, and someone I always looked up to. We will do our part in continuing his legacy, racing hard, and putting on a good show for the fans. I think that's what he would want us to do."
