The reason it's expensive for individuals is that there's insufficient fan interest (partly a promotion problem) which means there's less inside and outside sponsorship money available.
The only people who race cars are fat old rich guys. Nobody supports them either. But they have the money to burn. Take a look at any road race paddock for yourself. Grand Am IMSA or whatever.
