Fan revolt if Tony George takes over Indy Car Q: I hope IndyCar ownership, their sponsors and track owners realize the impact that Tony George will bring if he buys the series. Because of this rumor, I have put on hold purchasing tickets to Pocono raceway which I was very excited about. I will not spend another dime on IndyCar races until Hulman & Co. come out and state that they will not sell the series to any group of investors that include Tony George. I attended every race at Nazareth and made it a three-day weekend of it every year. My brothers and I spent money on three days of tickets, pit passes, food, hotels and souvenirs. A lot of money that I refuse to spend on a guy that has no clue about running a successful business and a person I still have not forgave for ruining what was once the best form of racing in this country. I hope other fans follow my lead and I hope Hulman & Co. really get it. It’s obvious that Tony doesn’t.

RM: I don’t know how if the car owners and board of directors listen to the fans but I can tell you that of the 400-plus letters and emails I’ve received in the past few days, yours is representative of most of them. The backlash if TG came back would be massive and felt at the box office, as well as the TV ratings, which are already on life support. Miller's Mailbag
