Johnson Receives Bill France Award Of Excellence

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – In honor of his standout career, seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson was presented with one of the sport’s highest honors Wednesday night. Johnson was named the recipient of the Bill France Award of Excellence during NASCAR’s virtual awards show on NBCSN, an honor recognizing industry members who have made a massive impact on NASCAR during their time in the sport. “I am so grateful and thankful for your contributions and what your future holds for you in our sport. I know the importance of it, and I’m really, really honored. NASCAR vice president of racing development Ben Kennedy presented the award to Johnson on NBCSN as part of this year’s awards festivities, which were held virtually after COVID-19 forced the cancellation of NASCAR’s Champion’s Week in Nashville, Tenn. Over 19 full-time seasons in the NASCAR Cup Series, Johnson won 83 races, tying him for sixth on the all-time win list with NASCAR Hall of Famer Cale Yarborough.
