Brant James: Patrick's a power in NASCAR and IndyCar

Terry Angstadt sat at a table on a stage in a darkened Orlando conference hall last week, patiently waiting his turn to espouse the power and the glory of the Izod Indycar Series on huge video panels and through booming speakers. NASCAR's chief marketing officer Steve Phelps was concluding his presentation to the gathered attendees of the Motor Sport Business Forum North America -- the "800-pound gorilla in the room," as organizer Zak Brown dubbed NASCAR, always seems to go first -- and Angstadt had many new developments to share, many pieces of evidence that his open wheel series might finally be making some in-roads back toward a greater identity in American sporting relevance.
