Michigan International Speedway President Roger Curtis on the passing Monday of Bill France:

On behalf of the staff of Michigan International Speedway, we are deeply saddened by the news of Bill France's death. Mr. France was a great American, and truly embodied the American entrepreneurial spirit. He transformed the auto racing industry into what it is today and was a historic figure that helped build the foundation of motorsports with his knowledge of business and love for auto racing.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Betty Jane, the rest of his family and the entire racing community as they deal with the loss of such a great man and leader.
