Lesa France Kennedy Biography

Lesa France Kennedy is Chief Executive Officer and Vice Chairperson of the Board of Directors for International Speedway Corporation (“ISC”) and Vice Chairperson of NASCAR.

In 2013, Kennedy launched ISC’s largest development project to date – DAYTONA Rising, a $400 million re-creation of the company’s flagship racetrack, the Daytona International Speedway. In January 2016, Daytona International Speedway became the world’s first and only modern motorsports stadium, revolutionizing the sport and fan experience. Kennedy is also leading the development of ONE DAYTONA, a preeminent retail, dining and entertainment destination across from the Speedway designed to create year-round visitation with tenants including Bass Pro Shops®, Cobb Theatres, P.F. Chang’s and an exclusive Marriott Autograph Collection® hotel.

Kennedy's conscious leadership, authenticity and incredible vision make her one of the most influential leaders in the motorsports industry, leading Forbes to select her twice as the “Most Powerful Woman in Sports” (2009, 2015). In her more than 30 years with ISC, she has advanced through several key executive positions with increasing responsibility including Secretary, Treasurer and Executive Vice President.

In 1996, her leadership launched Daytona USA (later named Daytona 500 Experience) at the Daytona International Speedway, opening the destination’s first year-round motorsports attraction and museum. In 2002, she led two development projects, creating Kansas Speedway and Chicagoland Speedway and expanding ISC’s portfolio into two major Midwest markets.

Kennedy received the “Women Making History” award from the National Women’s History Museum in 2014 and was selected by Street and Smith’s SportsBusiness Journal as the “Most Influential Woman in Sports Business” in 2005.

Her son, Ben Kennedy, is carrying on the France family legacy as a driver in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Lesa France Kennedy serves on the Board of Directors of the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA), the NASCAR Foundation and the Board of Advisors of Moffitt Cancer Center. She is an avid supporter of the American Heart Association, Habitat for Humanity, Victory Junction Gang, and Daytona Beach Museum of Arts and Sciences.
