France said Tuesday he thinks NASCAR and its fans got "the short end" when the race's last 34 laps were moved to ABC-owned ESPN2.
Fans who didn't make the switch missed Sprint Cup points leader Jimmie Johnson wrap up his seventh victory of the season and move closer to his third consecutive points title.
France, however, says the interests of NASCAR and its television partners are "in line" and that a rare early afternoon storm that forced the race to be red flagged twice couldn't be helped.
