Dodge and Ryan Newman Statements on Bill France, Jr.

DODGE STATEMENT ON BILL FRANCE Jr. “Everyone in the Dodge Motorsports family was saddened to hear the news of Bill France, Jr.’s passing. His leadership of NASCAR was fundamental in creating the dynamic motorsports industry we have today, and his contributions were innumerable. His vision, pragmatism and steady guidance will be missed, but his legacy will never be forgotten.” — Mike Accavitti, Director, Dodge Brand Marketing and SRT Communications

Ryan Newman – “Our thoughts go out to the France Family today. Obviously it’s a tough day in respect to that. I didn’t know Bill France Jr. real well, but obviously he helped build the sport. Without him and his dad the sport wouldn’t be what it is and it’s going to change with him gone. They’ve got a big, strong family and they’ll stand by his memory and help NASCAR keep growing as well. My condolences go out to the France Family.
