#5 Distancing themselves from the sport.
Does it seem like The France family is distancing themselves more and more from the sport they helped build from the ground up? While that was usually thought to be due to the negative publicity they would receive for the latest changes they decided to make to the sport, the rumor of the sport being for sale seems to point to a different reason entirely for their absence.
It seems like Brian France and the rest of his family is avoiding being asked the hard questions about the potential sale by not showing their face on race weekend. Interestingly enough, Brian France has become more and more distant from the sport in the last couple of months, which could mean that The France family has wanted to sell the sport for awhile now.
