From William Taylor:
Betty Jane France has died. Her maiden name was Knight. She was married to Bill France Jr. of NASCAR. In the 50’s, she attended Guilford School and was a student of my Mother’s Senior English class. Later, B.J. worked for City Motors, the Rambler dealership, in Greensboro. She was first married to Bob Montgomery, the radio broadcaster for most auto races. Later she married Bill France Jr. and became known as The First Lady of NASCAR and devoted much of her energy to charitable activities. She was truly an example of a local girl from a humble background that did well. May she R.I.P.
