You do realize Texas has 3 of the top ten most populated cities in America. NY would be the last place they should have a race, tucked up in the corner of the US. This race will be in driving distance of most of the US. Also MotoGP has signed a 10 year contract. There are two riders from the state of Texas in MotoGP. The MotoGP weekend will attract the huge bike scenes from Cali, Florida, and Texas.
