1987 Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach

The NBC broadcast of the 1987 CART IndyCar Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. Note the height of the grandstands – double what they are today – before Tony George destroyed the sport. Mario Andretti won almost $100K for the win compared to zero today. Adrian Newey was Mario's engineer that year. Do you think an Adrian Newey would come to IndyCar today after George decimated it?
