EV racing has been around for 20 years or more, EV drag racing is starting to gain some ground on the west coast but there are only a few people doing it, so I'm not sure how much either of those is going to get people in to electric cars.

The last time I had my electric car at the Mid West Renewable Energy Fair I gave a handful of people rides and offered up a ride in their silent auction, bids only got as high as $5 per ride but the people who went were thrilled, had lots of questions and said that they were going to look in to getting an electric car of their own because they enjoyed the silence, how clean it is and simple it was.
As I see it, you just have to get people in electric cars and before you know it they want one, that is the same reason why I'm building an electric motorcycle, I took one for a ride and I had to have one of my own.
