The Indy Racing League has proven that it can pull a large crowd for certain events - notably the Indianapolis 500 - but 2004 is already looking good for the series following the announcement that tickets for the Kansas Indy 300 and supporting Infiniti Pro Series event have sold out.

The 4 July race is the seventh of 16 on the IRL's 2004 schedule, and traditionally attracts a sizeable turnout amongst fans. It is thought that the date of the race may have had an extra benefit for the audience figures.

Bryan Herta won last year's Kansas Indy 300, his first IRL victory, while eventual champion Scott Dixon took the pole with a qualifying speed of 218.085mph around the 1.5-mile tri-oval.
