The Sprint Cup Series rolls into the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the “Brickyard 400” Sunday afternoon at 1pm on ESPN. Ticket sales are down for this race. A memo was put out for this race saying: "ticket sales are significantly behind from previous years" at IMS. Since sales have been dramatically down since the 2008 tire problems at the track, another significant decline would appear ominous. The memo goes on to say, the track believed there would be a large walk-up crowd for the July 31 race and hoped the autograph session would be well received by race fans.”

I really don't want to see this race gone from this track, I think its a big mistake by NASCAR. What are your thoughts?
