Interesting looking at the different forms of US auto racing and what the ultimate goals are for the drivers and car owners of each.

I'd guess that Sport Cars would have the smallest following in the US.
A few years back the Chili Bowl had a larger TV audience than the over the air network broadcast portion of the Daytona 24 Hours. The NASCAR truck race at Eldora has a large TV audience than the over the air network portion of the 24 Hours of Daytona.
