It's an improvement. At least things are going in the right direction...

Let's take this *momentum* into Motegi!

Uncomfortable truths monster would like everyone to take a look at the rating of street circuits vs. ovals this year. No, go ahead, I'll wait.

Waiting ...

Waiting ...

See? Not as clear-cut as we thought, huh?

I'm a big fan of oval racing. I frightened my in-laws screaming at the TV when Carpenter and Briscoe were wheel to wheel at Kentucky. But I do wonder if the "core fans" sometimes overthink things and skew their perception of what potential casual fans (ie, the people who the series would love to get to watch) will find really cool.

Except of course Truck series ratings are higher than any Indycar race on Versus... Nationwide on ESPN outrate almost every Indycar race ABC....

I wish I could write for the IndyCar.com and write that crap.

A .6 is a "hit"? Only in the warped Indy Car world.

I wonder if the Indy Car spinmasters will get to take Motegi off. Kinda like they did after Snorenoma, where there was no mention of the ratings.

Sonoma got 0.3 - it came out a day after the race.

pressdog

It "came out" Leigh because bloggers found it elsewhere. IndyCar things ratings that suck are NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS. They never issues any official story etc. when the ratings suck.

Leigh O'Gorman

Interesting point Pressdog, but do Versus release the figures if ratings are down?

pressdog

No, they do not. I have requested ratings from Versus PR several times with no response. ESPN PR kicks out ratings releases every week.
