Don't take what I said in a wrong way. And although my post had defeatist tones the thing I wanted to convey was the way I see your sport from my very casual fan point of view. I also take into account what I perceive to be a much harder time for these types of forums to get sponsorship from corporate America due to the more scrutinized times those corporations now have to deal with.
The perceived loss of a major sponsor for your series (Bud) and the division of CART and IRL producing a lot more entities vying for relatively the same sponsorship dollars might impact you. Again this in my very casual look at this situation.
I have no doubt of your commitment and the impressiveness of the show you guys put up and it is right up my alley, I might even take you up on your invite. I was not doubting your organization just the economic climate it relies on. You'd find that even though my post seemed defeatist I am ever the optimist and always up for a great time, ask a lot of people here, the only trait that might supplant this is the fact that I say what I think without sugar coating and tend to be an implacable realist!!!
Good Luck and as I mentioned I hope you prove me wrong.
