@KevinW I disagree with you on the notion that motorcycle racing is big america. In fact motorcycle racing of all kinds is very niche and to the point that the average person don't know who Valentino Rossi is, let alone Nicky Hayden or Kenny Roberts. Another thing I disagree with is when people say NASCAR is a hurdle to F1 ever becoming popular in america. The truth is just as it is with F1, NASCAR(and the same goes for IndyCar) suffer also in the sence of not really being in the mainstream. When I say not in the mainstream I'm talking about the fact that it doesn't get the level of coverage(other than the occasional controversy or death) as the other mainstream sports(NFL, NBA, MLB, college sports) Overall the truth is americans just don't really care about motorsports as whole which it quite disappointing and I say this because because motorsports as a whole whether it be cars, motorcycle, atv or whatever offer more in terms of excitement than typical ball and stick sport. @f
