tifosi12 tangentially brought this up in the French GP thread http://ferrarichat.com/forum/showthread.php?p=20533#post20533 but i've always wondered this, so thought i'd ask. why is the USGP run at Indy? isn't the goal to get as many US folks interested in F1 racing as possible? if so, why Indiana? i assume it has some stellar infrastructure given the NASCAR presence, but is that the only reason? doody.
