Why weren't F1 and MotoGP popular in the USA?

Though Formula 1 (F1) and MotoGP are wildly popular worldwide, they haven't quite caught on in the USA. The main reason seems to be a lack of exposure, as these sports often aren't widely broadcasted on American channels. Additionally, Americans have long-held favorites like NASCAR and IndyCar that dominate the racing scene. The relatively complex rules of F1 and MotoGP compared to these sports may also deter new fans. Finally, the lack of successful American competitors in these sports doesn't help to draw in the local audience.
