What has been your biggest challenge in business?
The greatest challenge I have had is establishing the Indy Racing League. Developing team sponsors and drivers, building continuity year after year and generally growing it has been very challenging.
What is the greatest lesson you've learned in business?
You can't be all things to all people. You need to do what you think is best, knowing that you can't make everyone happy.
You have to make those decisions, even though not everyone will be happy about them.
