So will this guarantee the final slot to an American outfit ? I wouldn't bet against it, they must have had some incentive.

Could get ZZ Top to present the trophies and play the anthems, would be good entertainment :)

So FOM won't go to Indy because it attracts 'the wrong type of spectators'. I don't see how going to Texas, a state that loves NASCAR, will attract the right type of fans that FOM want.

I don't see the point in spending all the money to build a completely new track in Austin. Don't get me wrong, Austin is a great place. But a lot of money could be saved if they would just upgrade an existing track like Laguna Seca.
