He was taken to Sag Harbor Village Justice Court where he was held overnight and release Monday morning after his arraignment.

France was released just after 9 a.m. Monday.

In a statement to ESPN, the auto racing company said it is aware of the situation and is gathering more information.

Jim France is Brian's uncle, as Brian's father - former NASCAR CEO Jim France Jr. - was his brother.

"Brian France has taken an indefinite leave of absence from NASCAR as chairman and chief executive officer", the NASCAR statement read. News of the arrest came from the Sag Harbor Village Police Department in Suffolk County, home to New York's Hamptons community. He said in a statement that his indefinite leave will be used to focus on his "personal affairs".

NASCAR CEO Brian France was arrested for DWI and possession of oxycodone approximately two hours after Chase Elliott's win on Sunday.

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

"The France family is locked and loaded in its dedication to NASCAR", France told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. Brian France is the nephew of Jim France. France reportedly ran a stop sign in a 2017 Lexus when he was stopped by police. He hit a tree in 2006, also while driving a Lexus, and a witness said he "fell over his own feet" after he got out of the auto. He told officers he'd been driving and drinking a soda when he "bumped into something".

She said she also watched as France "fell over his own feet" as he got out of his vehicle. By the time Daytona Beach police arrived, France was inside his condominium.
