NASCAR president Steve Phelps is the newest member of the NASCAR’s Board of Directors.

NASCAR chairman and CEO Jim France made the announcement in a press release. Phelps becomes the fifth member of NASCAR’s Board of Directors, joining France; Lesa France Kennedy, executive vice chair; Mike Helton, senior advisor to NASCAR; and Gary Crotty, chief legal officer.

“Steve’s unwavering leadership and dedication to growing our sport through even the most challenging times has been remarkable,” said Jim France. “Steve understands every part of our business and has demonstrated a consistently confident and steady presence in the face of adversity. He will be a valued and trusted addition to the Board of Directors as we work to build a stronger NASCAR for our fans and our sport.”

Phelps was named president of NASCAR, replacing Brent Dewar, in 2018. He was given responsibility over business and competition operations. Phelps has been with NASCAR since 2005 and is the fifth president in the sanctioning body’s history.

“I am incredibly honored to be appointed to the Board of Directors,” said Phelps. “As a lifelong fan of the sport, I feel a great sense of pride and duty in our work to position the sport for long-term success. I am grateful for the leadership and example set by the France family and am genuinely humbled by their continued trust in me.”
