    So he's not out of money. He just sees sports car racing has a bigger audience in Europe.

    I am pretty sure it is just he found a sponsor in Europe paying for the bill. and no sponsor here.

    That's probably it. His company, Tully's Coffee, was one of his sponsors here. Even for him it's all about not going broke.
