They Nascar operation flunked because they had a trained open wheel driver attempting to drive something he just wasn't prepared for.

They should have sponsored scott speed in Indycar and set hum up with a strong team...newman haas, KV racing, Dreyer and reinbold. They would have had better results since scott speed's talents were closer to indycar racing. Or simply buy out one of the penske or ganassi entries.

They just didn't put much thought into the US motorsport scene.

boss b. they got rid of scott speed, so why would they again sponsor him? rossi is, in my opinion, the american to watch.
redbull own the a1 ring which is now called the red bullring. i think that with the positie vibes coming from bernie, and his desire to keep red bull it the f1 circus, that we will see a race before too long, in austria.

@ Nice Tea. I wasn't saying that they can't sponsor a race because they already own a circuit. I was replying to FrozenCandle's comment about how Red Bull should throw their weight behind the A1 Ring. And I merely stated that they had already done that.

Ah I see...I obviously got confused then so! I don't understand why they want to sponsor Austin. They probably just want to stay in the American market
