No sale

September 15, 2008

Businesses near the Indianapolis Motor Speedway didn’t get quite what they had hoped for:

Fans crowded the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Saturday watching the motorcycles go by at record speeds qualifying for the inaugural Indianapolis MotoGP. They were also hoping to catch a glimpse of the riders and maybe snag an autograph. Although the track was busy most of the day it was not as crowded as some local business owners would have liked.

“It’s good but it’s not what we expected,” Jim Luebbert said.

What Luebbert, owner of Speedway Monogramming expected was more people walking the streets. People who he hoped would walk into his store and buy.

“But It seems like everybody’s in cars and bikes and can’t wait to get inside,” Luebbert said.

So, motorcycle racing fans aren’t serious shoopers — people who like to wander around aimlessly, making impulse buys. Do you think minor league baseball fans are?
