well.... I think NOW you may be on the way to understanding what the original poster said.....
obviously HE doesn't need fans to show up and buy merchandise, nor does HE need competitors. (From what I've seen of view he doesn't like competition anyways)
the track however DOES need racers and fans. This would be the reasoning for someone to want to show the track(s) that if his recent actions continue that the racers and fans alike will diminish.
I thought it was pretty simple concept to understand to begin with
