Description

Former NASCAR president, chairman, and CEO William Clifton France--known to most people at 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 unprecedented levels of popularity. The biography covers Bill Jr.'s role in NASCAR's formative years; his assumption of the NASCAR presidency, replacing his father; the sports' explosion under his leadership; his courageous battle with cancer throughout the last decade of his life; and his final role, as NASCAR vice chairman and main advisor to NASCAR's third generation leader, his son, Chairman and CEO Brian France.
