I certainly haven't seen all the covers, but I thought I did see a recent one with GRC on the front. so, it seems to me that they are pushing the others, and were mostly ignoring SRRT coverage.

but I agree that Drive and Performance don't have a large audience, and more specifically, are rarely seen by potential new customers. I used it as a gauge because I would expect that the teams themselves aren't paying for spots there, where they might be in other outside publications. so, they had a team they could have used for promotion, and they seemed to ignore it for the dirt programs. I just think they underutilized their own potential marketing of this team, and gave up on them because there were no measurable sales leads from their lack of marketing.
