J.C. France’s DUI Arrest

October 8, 2009

Have you heard about J.C. France’s DUI arrest? That’s right, the grandson of the originator of NASCAR, Bill France has been charged with possession and driving under the influence. Get the rest of the scoop here.


How much did it cost J.C. France to be a free man this evening? Drum roll please…and the answer is, just a little less than five grand. His constant swerving was a dead give away to officers that France was lacking in the sobriety department, and then when he ran a stoplight, well, that was just the icing on the cake. It turns out that race car driver # 59, who was at the wheel of a 2007 lambo, was in a race against his half-brother, Russell Van Richmond, who was driving a Porsche when the authorities nabbed the two.

In the Porsche police found what after tests appears to be cocaine. According to reports, Richmond was not too pleased about the situation either, he barked at law enforcement:

“No, this is a mistake for you. I’m a France, we own this city.”

He then went on to yell at a police man, telling the officer that his job “is over,” and that this was “the biggest mistake ever.”

Richmond’s bond, set at $10,500, was more than double that of his half-brothers. Just because the two are free tonight doesn’t mean there won’t be any repercussions for the men, whom I must say seem to think extremely highly of themselves. Recently revealed in a statement by a NASCAR spokesperson, J.C. has already been “suspended from all competition.” As for the other half of the duo, I’m sure we will find out his punishment soon enough.

    I’ve known jamie for awhile and he has never thrown his name around. I cannot speak for his half brother. Don’t look down on a guy for something many of you do. The only thing that make this news is the name France. Good luck Jamie.

    The reports I read said that Richmond was the son of one of Jim France’s ex-wives. That does not make him France’s half-brother, nor a France. He’s probably just living on his mother’s alimony.

    It should also be made clear that France was not belligerent to the police, it was Richmond. France was too blasted to say anything.

    Richmond reminds me of Francis, the guy who stole Pee-Wee’s bike in “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure.” I guess he too was too wasted to realize that the male policeman he was threatening with his job was not a beat cop, but a Captain. That France is this clown’s friend says a lot about the type of guy France is.

    As to the previous comment, I’m 57 years old, and no… I have never, nor have ever known anyone, who did what these two allegedly have done.

    Here is a instance with JC France back in 2004 to prove the lack of braincells this guy has.. even back then! So it just proves you cant fix STUPIDITY! ——–

    Preseason thunder Daytona Speedway January 2004, its about 11:15PM, track is dark. I worked at the track then, the track is “cold” and had been for about 2 hours, I hear over the radio someone has gone out on the track doing “hot” laps in a white Caddilac Escalade, Security was on duty and also contacted the Daytona PD to assist. It turned out that J.C France was giving a ride around the track at over 100 mph with an un-identified female (some said she looked like a hoo ker) and (heres the character of this piece of waste) 2 children in the back seat in childseats! His statement to security was, ” I own this track” how is it that the lack of brains and judgement of this guy continues and he will put ANYONE at risk whenever he wants to! JC France. your a waste of blood and protien! Go disolve in jail, or even better, send him to Somalia! The pirates would like you! NOTHING YOU SAY GREEK WILL EVER CHANGE THIS. 100% TRUE STORY, AND HE IS A 100% A HOLE, how much did he buy you for?

    J.C.France IS a jerk. I witnessed his “antics” first hand at VIR last year. we were at the kart track at VIR before the rolex race when the Brumos tem came to have a little fun with the Karts (pretty common for most race teams). Most of their crew was on track when JC came blasting into the pits and promptly gave the Kart Track owners a tounge lashing for ill prepared karts ( “these kats are s***” ) and stomped off like a Baby !

    What a clueless chump… the karts are rentals and we had been driving them just before they came… the karts are fine, He just couldn’t get the hang of it (weird for a “pro” driver eh?).
