A Letter From Jeff Belskus to the Fans
"Job one is growing our fanbase,"
he [Belskus] said. "We've got to grow that; we've got to create awareness with fans; we've got to engage them. I think a lot of things will flow from that in terms of growth of the series, growth of TV ratings, and things along those lines."
I like that.
Jeff Belskus: "I'm thankful for our fans. They're passionate about our sport. They've emailed us, and we're working on responding to each of them. I want to let them know that our priority is to grow our sport and make IndyCar as exciting as ever."
Belskus, again: "It is critical to be able to work with our key stakeholders, and we have a lot of key stakeholders – the car owners, the drivers, the track owners and promoters, sponsors, and fans," he said.
"You've got to be able to balance all those groups and balance their desires. You need to be able to communicate with all of those groups effectively, as well."
Not easy to do, either. Contradictions abound
