With falling attendance numbers and lower TV ratings, NASCAR needed a good story line.  Well, they got just that Sunday at Watkins Glen.  Son of NASCAR Hall of Famer Bill Elliot (Chase) scored his first win in the Cup series.  Breaking a 37 race winless streak for HMS, the 250th win for HMS.  A very popular win for the fans and his fellow drivers as well. 

Step in NASCAR president and CEO Brian France, his father and grandfather are spinning in their graves at about 1000 RPM.  Sag Harbor, the Hamptons, Long Island, NY.

Competitors and colleagues remained confident in NASCAR’s ability to move beyond Brian France’s arrest and wished the best for the grandson of the sport’s founder Tuesday.

NASCAR announced Monday that France would take a leave of absence from his role as Chairman and CEO after he was arrested Sunday night by Sag Harbor (New York) Police. France was cited for aggravated driving while intoxicated and criminal possession of a controlled substance in the 7th degree after he failed to stop at a stop sign. He was cited for possession of oxycodone pills.

France spent Sunday night in jail. He had a court appearance Monday morning and was released on his own recognizance.

I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

DisapproveWow...genuinely stupid...and something missing. A 'cry for help' where help starts with a touch of 'Jail Therapy'.
I sure hope Brian France's family loves him, supports him, and helps him identify and address what is missing in his life, what pain he is trying to kill or escape.
He's yet another 'opioid crisis statistic'.
I can't say I understand him but I can say I CLEARLY understand his situation. ErmmSince losing the Missus and now living in 'The Lonely Days of End of Life Despair & Death' that comes with caring for aged family and living every day watching the end creep closer, I still fight the chance of another relapse every single stinking day - especially at dusk (clicky==> Direct Link To This Post    Read the post 'A Brisk Beautiful Morning and The Wake Up Call - Has 'Heathaze' by Genesis imbedded) ') )).
My boys call me all the time and that really helps more than they'll ever understand. The girls never call at all and I don't understand that...and yes, pain comes with that and why, when they decide to talk again, 'they can talk to the rock'. One day I will be here alone and having to mothball The Estate in the Swamp...but then I can race back to The Den and sit alone there...or my son, The Afgylad, will be around (which helps tons).  I'm even considering pulling a 'Jean Lafitte' and scuttling both places then burning them to the ground, but my brother would probably sue me.
