I assume the owner driver in Atlantics was Eric Jensen.
As he also had a team in the FBMW series he is now left high and dry with a fortune in cars and equipment, as are other teams.
Eric's dad was Bruce Jensen who at times ran with the best in the mid 70's on a tiny budget.
I know, I crewed for him through most of his career and most years the entire crew were unpaid volunteers.

Where are the teams and, especially, drivers going? Are they simply getting out of racing or are they finding cheaper, lower-profile series to run in? Presumably, the talent is still out there and has the passion to find some means of competing somewhere in something.

Add this to the sad legacy that was Tony George

Most are going to Mazda Series(FA with a great Mazda engine)and you can run a 1st. rate team for about 300k .
