Maybe but domestic crit racing has less significance than a minor league baseball affiliate, only anoraks and the devoted minority care about US domestic race scene. The future of US racing coming back to what it was is dependent on two things. One a charismatic, gregarious, and good looking American GC racer who can win multiple Tours confidently and two; cycling clubs.
When I got into racing everyone raced in club kits and on clubs, your shop teams where typically cat 2 and above or rich guys who bought a lot of bikes and had their ego polished. The races where largely put on by clubs; clubs who had a good portion of members that weren’t racers which means not only could they put on a race with only a goal to break even but their operating costs where lower and they had tons of volunteers to support the race and political capital to get things to happen at the local level. So there were more races and they were actually affordable to do. On top of that the club could funnel non-racers into racing.
Nowadays no one cares about racing in the US because there is very little road racing, every race is hard to get to fewer clubs so you have to figure everything out yourself or via dubious forum advice or youtube, expensive, and you race so little you never get used to it as a cat 4/5 and start to get past the nerves.
There are crits but there are ohh so many people that are going to take crashes with that frequency plus going to a community college parking lot to race in a featureless loop gets boring if you’re not a power/sprinter rider type.
edit:sorry, it appears I missed the point. Answer to the original question is likely yes but it doesn’t really matter.
