Indycar was hotter than chili in 1993. Had the reigning F1 world champion taking part, and after Senna died in 1994 F1 had no stars left - although Schumacher was just emerging.

Then Tony George declared he was worried about the Indy 500 becoming less of a thing and split the race away from the championship to start his own. So by 1996 the Indy 500 was between has-beens and never-weres like Buddy Lazier and Steve Knapp.

Everything took an instant nosedive and has never recovered.
