Today’s episode of NASCAR America will memorialize the life of Betty Jane France, NASCAR’s former “First Lady” who died Monday after making many contributions (such as the NASCAR Foundation) to stock-car racing.
Mike Helton, the vice chairman of NASCAR and longtime confidant of the France family, will make a special guest appearance to share his thoughts about Betty Jane France.
Dave Briggs hosts with Dale Jarrett in Stamford, Connecticut. They are joined by Steve Letarte and Bobby Labonte from NBC Sports Charlotte.
