Television ratings are up for the first three races of the season, and the events at both Phoenix and Las Vegas sold out. France also credits the competition, which produced 20-year-old Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne.
Speaking Wednesday in Charlotte, N.C., France says the task for NASCAR is to continue to improve over its 36-race season.
NASCAR does not race this weekend.
France says he doesn't think the lull will hurt the momentum NASCAR is trying to build after several seasons of slumping ratings and attendance.
