NASCAR Chairman and CEO Jim France released the following statement after the death of three-time Cup series champion Cale Yarborough.

“Cale Yarborough was one of the toughest competitors NASCAR has ever seen. His combination of talent, grit and determination separated Cale from his peers, both on the track and in the record book. He was respected and admired by competitors and fans alike and was as comfortable behind the wheel of a tractor as he was behind the wheel of a stock car. On behalf of the France family and NASCAR, I offer my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Cale Yarborough.”

Yarborough not only competed in the NASCAR Cup Series but he also made four Indianapolis 500 starts and had a best finish of 10th place in 1972. Indianapolis Motor Speedway President J Douglas Boles released a statement via X (formerly Twitter).
