In addition to his racing exploits as a driver and Championship Car owner, Junior Johnson also was instrumental in bringing RJ Reynolds and its' Winston brand into NASCAR, where their marketing abilities and MONEY moved the sport into the mainstream. Although the France Family is unlikely to admit it, Junior's actions likely saved NASCAR from extinction. There can be no greater Epitaph...
Rest in Peace Junior Crying or Very sad

Junior was a simple man with CEO instincts. They served him well.
