They have to have a reason to go, and so far there haven't been any reasons to go. No points championship, no money, no air time.......without these US riders won't show up. These aren't local weekend warriors, they are the cream of the crop and they ... more »

Wow those pictures say it all.........I hope Bud has some deep pockets cause that really looks like he is down a heck of a lot more than 50%. Its going to take him 5 years to just break even.

They do show the gp races in the US, I have watched them many times. I would imagine viewership is probably low as well.

The top GP guys are extremely fast, they prove this every year at the mxdn. We win each year because we usually have the strongest team of riders, but if it was Europe against the US then things would be about even and we would have a harder time winning. ... more »

I am sure if we were to run a National in Europe the outcome would be the same if none of the Euros showed up to race. It would also be a losing proposition if the promoter had to pay a huge fee to hold the National and pay a purse on top. It just seems ... more »

You really can't say that there was a lack of advertising, the race was still held on the same weekend it would have been if the nats were there. People decided not to come because it wasn't a nat, plain and simple.

Added reply in a thread No fans showed up to the USGP, kinda sad. 5/30/2010 6:33 PM

They charged that much because they knew that people who were going to come were going to come either way. They also knew turn out would be low so they had to get as much money as possible from the diehards who had to see a GP.

If the GP had a large turn out I could see another US promoter saying yes to running a GP. But with the lack of turn out in a place like glen helen and all its history is a huge blow. The money they had to pay to get the race along with all the overhead. ... more »
