Didn't you need a ticket to watch the race ?? So how come the number is "estimated" ?? The ticket office should know EXACTLY how many tickets were sold/comped .. whatever. My guess is the REAL number is much lower than 35,000 and either the IRL and/or the track are afraid to publish the truth.


I'd buy 35,000. I was at the race and the 25,000 permanent seats were full and the overflow temporary bleachers were full too. Still, the track, I'm sure, knows exactly how many tickets it sold. For some reason, IRL attendance figures are always double secret.
