• 2012 Indy 500 Earns Second Lowest Overnight Ratings Ever

      Though down only slightly from last year, the 2012 Indianapolis 500 earned one of the lowest overnights ever for the event.

      The IndyCar Series Indianapolis 500 drew a 4.1 overnight rating on ABC Sunday afternoon, down 5% from last year (4.3), but up a tick from 2010 (4.0).

      The 4.1 overnight is the second-lowest for the Indy 500 since the race began airing live in 1986. As recently as 2008, the race drew a 5.1 overnight.
      Though the race itself was down from last year, the prerace portion of ABC’s coverage earned a 1.9 overnight — up 46%.
      For some perspective, the rain-delayed 2012 Daytona 500 drew a 7.7 rating in primetime.

      Saw it last night. Excellent film. Was not aware of the Willy T. Ribbs connection, you learn something new every day.

      IMHO she'll never sell the Speedway. This Indiana Economic Digest article below may be over four years old, but I believe it reflects the family's current

      So Leo after 20 years of TG's Tantrum estimated to have cost the Hulman family somewhere between $500 and $750 million, do you think Mari is coherent

      IndyCrap is in no position to give anyone guarantees. The mayor's office probably got played for a couple million in financial commitments to run that
