IndyCar Schedule Next Year Could Be Low On Ovals If Title Sponsors Are Not Found
Published October 3, 2011
ATTENDANCE PROBLEMS AT OVALS: In Toronto, Norris McDonald wrote outside of the Indianapolis 500 and the annual race at Iowa Speedway, attendance "at Indy-style ovals is a disgrace." Yesterday's Kentucky Indy 300 at Kentucky Speedway "was attended by so few people that they looked lost in the 100,000-seat arena." McDonald: "Milwaukee was embarrassing earlier this year and New Hampshire was a joke more recently and neither are expected to be on the 2012 schedule" (WHEELS.ca, 10/2).
