Remembering a Grand Champion
Four-Time West Champ Bill Schmitt Left Indelible Legacy on NASCAR
Special race night at the Shasta Speedway. Whether it was as a businessman in his hometown of Redding, California or racing stock cars - Bill Schmitt worked hard to be the best at whatever he did and gained a lot of respect along the way. In racing, Schmitt was a four-time champion and one of the most popular drivers of his era in what was then known as the NASCAR Winston West Series (now the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West).
