Dale Jarrett Statement On the passing of Bill France, Jr.

"We are deeply saddened by Bill France's passing. When you look at the sport of NASCAR racing and think about the people that have truly made a difference Bill France comes to mind first. He, along with his dad, had a vision of what it would take to make this sport the most popular form of auto racing in the United States and even the world -- against many odds a lot of times. Even though Bill had not been directly involved in the day-to-day operations for quite a while, and he felt comfortable with what he had put in place for that to happen, he was still a voice to be heard for Lesa and Brian and everyone within the NASCAR community and he will be deeply missed."
