To be clear, I’ve attended plenty of other types of sporting events. I’ve attended Fan Appreciation Day for the Kansas City Royals. I’ve attended regular-season and playoff games for the Indianapolis Colts. I’ve been to AA and AAA baseball games, and as a student, I watched several Purdue football games up close.

Whatever else you think of what IndyCar is doing these days, they’re really offering fans a lot of ways to keep close to their sport. I'd encouraging them to continue to focus on bringing in the youth as well; offerings such as making Gasoline Alley admission allowed for ages 9 and up, as well as the excellent IMS Kids Club, are really positive steps. I'd love to see the IZOD IndyCar Series as a whole embrace that direction as well.
