Did they say why?.
Something to do with in-fighting with the management at Indy racetrack which runs IRL, they said. They were also suggesting just doing a 1 race series with the Indy 500 of course.
My guess is there are few fans in the stands and skyrocket expenses and sponsor ships going in the tank. They didn't say for certain.
If not for Danica, I wouldn't be watching the IRL at all. Not because shes cute, but because she is an underdog. I respect her effort against the men. Shes easy to like from a fan persepctive.
Unless you have a Penske or Target car, your chances of winning are not to great. The show they put on is not that good either. Danica and Dan Wheldon together couldn't even draft up to Helios car at Indy. He pulled away by himself.
I wouldn't be surprised any day that the IRL is done.
Since Sam Hornish has proven great success at IRL does not transfer to Nascrap, I wouldn't expect any of the IRL drivers except Danica to get picked up. Her of course because she is so popular and easy to find sponsorship for. Why would anyone want to watch Helio in Nascrap, or the rest of them?
