France called into a radio show last month to refute a report that his family was looking into selling its racing properties, saying his family was "locked and loaded in its dedication to NASCAR". "Brian's been our leader for a long time". Jim France, Brian's uncle, has assumed the chairman and CEO roles for the privately owned company.

If the rest of the France family is taking charge, the message needs to be delivered publicly, said Ramsey Poston, who spent more than 10 years as a communications executive for NASCAR.

"It's good to have a racer", Harvick said. Both Jim France and Lesa France Kennedy have become more involved this year and had privately been picking up the slack for Brian France. So neither said anything as of Tuesday, and the attention instead was steered back toward Elliott.

As for the off-track news that usurped his victory?

"The one thing that I hope is that Brian gets in front of the people that he needs to get in front of and gets the assistance and help that he needs to make sure this is something that doesn't happen again".

"It's unfortunate, obviously, and he's got some personal issues he's going to attend to", Hamlin said.

Bruton Smith, executive chairman of Speedway Motorsports Inc., told The Associated Press that the sport will continue to go forward.

Smith was a longtime NASCAR adversary during Bill France Jr.'s 31-year reign as chairman.

France is a third-generation leader of NASCAR.

Then we learn that that former World Champion Niki Lauda was days away from death and had to have an emergency lung transplant, that Daniel Ricciardo is leaving Red Bull at the end of the season to join Renault while Fernando Alonso may just possibly go to Indycar next season to chase his dream of the Triple Crown.

"At this point in time, NASCAR needs friends and people that will help", Smith said. "It's a great sport and we go forward and we all should be very protective of it and be willing to lend a helping hand".

"They were catching a lot of heat by not doing something", Smith said.

"I think NASCAR, owners and drivers need to get on the same page to reverse the trend, and everyone has to share in the responsibility", Sabates said, arguing Brian France deserves a spot in the sport when he decides to return. Brian's uncle Jim France who is the executive vice president and vice chairman at NASCAR will be promoted to interim Chairman and CEO.

Several figures associated with the NASCAR industry feel comfortable about Jim France filling that role, given his lengthy involvement in the sport.

Another big name, Felix Sabates, part owner of Chip Ganassi Racing, told the AP, "We need to find it in our hearts to forgive Brian for his mistakes". That's what you need is that racing perspective of just making sure we stick with the roots of what made NASCAR racing what it is, and he's been around it and know how that went.

Everything here is headline material but perhaps the most serious of all, although the impact will really be felt in the USA, is the Brian France story. He is fun to be with, he knows as many amusing jokes as his daddy, he is very charitable.
