Jim France’s involvement in the sport allows him to make a smooth transition in serving as NASCAR interim chairman and CEO, NASCAR team owner Joe Gibbs said Tuesday.

NASCAR announced Monday night that France would take over the role previously held by his nephew Brian France, who is taking an indefinite leave of absence to focus on personal issues following an arrest Sunday night for aggravated DWI and misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance.

NASCAR doesn’t comment on its ownership structure, but Jim France and his niece, Lesa France Kennedy (Brian’s sister), are the co-owners of the sanctioning body, according to available public documents and sources.
