The demographics have changed 60% of the fan base is 45 to 65 yr old men. Fancy cell phones, video games and other cyber based entertainment kinda put the kabosh on alot of the younger demographics following in the baby boomer and older footsteps. Costs of fielding a race team, and attending events play in along with logistic issues. The racing thats left today is a good enough entertainment bang for the buck for some of us that still support it. The days of the regular weekly shows filling grandstands are gone.
