Lesa France Kennedy, CEO of International Speedway Corporation and vice chairwoman of NASCAR, was honored by Forbes magazine this week as one of the most powerful women in U.S. sports for 2018.

Kennedy’s work envisioning and guiding the $400 million rethinking of Daytona International Speedway as the first modern day motorsports stadium is one of her biggest accomplishments recently — as is the $200 million makeover at ISM Raceway in Phoenix.

The granddaughter of NASCAR founder Bill France was second on Forbes’ list this year after previously topping the list, most recently in 2015.
