About The Book

Former NASCAR president, chairman, and CEO William Clifton France “known to most people as Bill France Jr.” is remembered and revered as the man who followed his visionary father at the helm of NASCAR, in the process becoming a visionary himself as he guided NASCAR to the unprecedented levels of popularity. Bill Jr. grew up during the formative years of stock-car racing, living and learning every detail of the sport from his own experiences and those of his father, NASCAR founder William Henry Getty France, who is known as Bill Sr. or Big Bill.

Bill France Jr.: The Man Who Made NASCAR examines an extraordinary life including Bill Jr.’s role in NASCAR’s early years; his assumption of the NASCAR presidency; the sport’s explosion in popularity; his courageous battle with cancer; and his final role as vice chairman and main advisor to NASCAR’s third generation leader: his son, chairman/CEO Brian France.

Bill France Jr. combined pragmatism with optimism, an approach that resulted in a calculated and adventurous road to success for NASCAR. He was a character with character - a tough-as-nails leader with a heart of gold that he liked to hide, lest it lessen his imposing public image. Bill France Jr. was all about honoring the old while also exploring the new. He always had one foot in the past and the other in the future - a combination that always benefited the present. Keep moving or else you’ll get passed up. That was his philosophy, but it ran concurrent with the old axiom that you can’t really know where you’re going unless you know where you’ve been. Bill France Jr. never forgot where NASCAR had been. This book will help to ensure that no one ever forgets Bill France Jr.
