• 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.

      It was one of the greatest. That's the thing about Laguna. Much of the area has views of several corners. I think I may have sat in grandstand seats once

      I may be wrong, but I believe the bridge in T9 was moved specifically for the bikes.

      I used to go to the GP bike races when they still raced
