"Here the Sponsor is not number 1"
  By: Brian C. Mackey
You've heard the expression the customer is number one?

It might logically seem to be true, but increasingly, it doesn't tell the whole story. For Indy Car racing, and motorsports as a whole, the lessons learned from this statement could bring sizable improvements in the overall marketing capabilities of this sport. For the above statement to be true, you have to consider the context.
