TMZ: NASCAR CEO Brian France arrested for DUI in New York

NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France was arrested in The Hamptons late Sunday night and charged with DUI, police say.

Police said he was in possession of oxycodone pills.

The 56-year-old France was released after his arraignment earlier this morning. Brian France, the founder's grandson, was named NASCAR's chairman of the board and CEO in September 2003.

Effective immediately, Jim France - Brian's uncle - will act as the interim chairman and CEO of NASCAR.

According to SHPD, France was pulled over after blowing through a stop sign while driving a 2017 Lexus northbound on Main Street near Wharf Street.

That arrest sounds very straightforward, for all intents and purposes, but TMZ, who first broke the news, had other details.

Though France has served as CEO for almost 15 years, The Wall Street Journal reported in 2017 that France sold his entire stake in NASCAR more than a decade ago and "essentially works for his sister and uncle (Jim)", who hold significant stakes.

Her statement was not attached to the police report, and the Daytona Beach police chief later investigated whether France was given special treatment by authorities.
