France has since taken an indefinite leave at a time when the auto racing circuit is seeking a minority investor. Also discussed are LeBron James’s programs with Showtime and CBS, and the suspension of a number of North Carolina football players for selling school-issued merchandise. In all, 13 players were suspended, including quarterback Chazz Surratt. The NCAA approved a request to stagger some of the suspensions.
