Monaco's prestige has to take a hit because it's the least competitive race on the F1 calendar and it has been for years. The Indy 500 has great racing every year.

Le Mans has the issue that endurance racing is so niche.

The Indy 500 transcends it's promoter, which is extra prestigious. It's been promoted as a Formula 1 Grand Prix, as well as a USAC, IRL, and now Indy event. Dudes from other racing leagues regularly try their hand at the Indy 500.

If you're remotely interested in racing, give it a try.

The cars are impressive, but slightly less so than F1. They're faster, but not quite as good handling. Drivers are insanely good. They have to be able to handle road, street and oval courses. None of the WWF-style manipulation of story lines/outcomes of NASCAR.

They have numerous rules to bunch the cars together and erase leads. It results in the races being more random and the fastest car winning less often than in Indy or Formula 1.

Not really, although it seems like NASCAR has frequently gotten the person it needed to win at just the right time.

The way the rules are set up creates bunched racing and makes it more likely/possible to get that special winner.

I also really dislike how in-race deals are worked out between teams to help each other with drafting. Those also help get just the right winner in particular races, imo.

The people involved in open wheel racing fucked up big time. They split into CART and IRL. The popular teams and drivers all went to to CART but the Indy 500 stayed with IRL and ran with a bunch of nobodies. This was all happening right as NASCAR was getting really popular so they lost tons of fans. They have since amended the split, but Indy never recovered.

They were greedy and didn't know what they had. It's hard to imagine anyone being that stupid.

To make an analogy, imagine if all the best baseball players left MLB to form their own league. Because the MLB teams still have all the stadiums, the players have to play in shithold stadiums in small markets. The teams meanwhile import a bunch of scrubs and try to get people to forget about the old players. It's so obviously and monumentally stupid that I find it hard to imagine anyone thought it was a good idea at the time.

There was some logic to what Tony George was trying to do, he just ran into Roger Penske's massive ego and he went about it terribly.

He was trying to do two main things and he used IMS and the 500 as leverage.

First he wanted a more centralized authority making key decisions from race control to series specs to races run. CART was a mess from a governance standpoint in which the team owners practically had to agree on every decision and they couldn't.

Second he wanted greater opportunities for American drivers. Teams were turning to European drivers who could come over and buy a seat. Top American USAC drivers were finding they couldn't get a ride and started turning to NASCAR where there was greater opportunities. Jeff Gordon was the prime example of a guy who should have been an IndyCar lifer and superstar but he ended up racing taxicabs.

George accomplished his first goal. IndyCar is now put of the hands of team ow ers and much better run today, although tho cost to the sport wasn't worth it.

There was a brief period where there were greater opportunities for American drivers, too. But now we are back at the same spot on that front. Kyle Larson should be pushing Josef Newgarden to be the face of Indy, but he is instead running on NASCAR.

IndyCar as a whole lost a lot of ground when the owner of the IMS decided to split with CART and start his own series. For 15 years or so there were two distinct IndyCar series in competition with each other. They reunited a few years ago and the racing has been fantastic, but they have had a hard time rebuilding audience.

The 500 is still the greatest auto race of the year.
