Indianapolis never attracted large crowds? For an F1 race, I dare say a crowd of 100k - 150k people is extremely large. Extremely. Compared to other events at the Speedway, not so much.

For some perspective, USGP attendance (to my recollection) never dipped below 150,000. For an F1 race in *any* country, that is respectable. The problem with the USGP was that Tony George had the audacity to want to SHARE revenues and Bernie disagrees.

Secondly, despite the good attendance/loyal fan base, Bernie/F1 in general does *nothing* to promote the sport in the States. If he's the worldwide ringmaster, then where is the marketing in the BIGGEST MARKET???

Races here are either at the crack of dawn or middle of the night, we never see the drivers here, no magazines interview them, we get nothing. For our loyalty despite that we fans get lambasted for "lackluster support?"
