Also, after the above reply:

Kj asked a most intelligent and insightful question, about the insurance and all - and sadly, kj, I bet there is no insurance for Robby where this event is concerned:   If an event doesn't run, everybody loses.  Robby Gordon would have gotten money from sponserships.  He drove a "Monster Energy Drink" sponsered  Hummer last year, if I recall. 

With no race, his sponser(s) withdraw(s), he loses his ride....technically, all he had to offer was his extreme talent as a driver - and he was going to be hired - and paid well -  to drive for a sponser and for glorifying Hummers.  When the race was cancelled, so was his job, and ergo, his pay...I think...
