On Tuesday, September 18, NASCAR CEO and chairman Brian France pleaded not guilty to charges of driving while intoxicated and criminal possession of oxycodone pills. Many would argue that, from a leadership perspective, NASCAR was already in a state of disarray long before France's arrest back on August 5. But the current situation certainly doesn't help things any.
While France is on his indefinite leave of absence, Brian's brother Jim France is serving as interim chairman and CEO, and though the NASCAR reigns will likely stay with the France family for the foreseeable future, it would be interesting to imagine what NASCAR would be like in the hands of someone else. You know, just hypothetically, of course.
That's why in a Facebook post, we asked our fans who they would like to ultimately see replace Brian France. Here's what just a few of them had to say.
This actually doesn't sound like a terrible idea.
I like where this is going.
Well, that's definitely one way to deal with things.
Junior's Committee. That has a nice ring to it.
Wonder Boy has a certain trustworthiness about him that most NASCAR fans would probably appreciate.
Well, I don't know about that...
Such an awesome group of NASCAR legends.
Old school meets new school definitely sounds like it'd be good for ratings.
High praise for ol' DW.
