It's unfortunate but I think this is just the new norm for all different motorsports (NASCAR, Indy, NHRA, etc.) The current generation just isn't in to motorsport like in the past. Sure the big events like the Daytona/Indy 500, Gatornational, etc will have good turnouts but I think the days of sell out crowds in motorsports are over. This is why so many tracks are reducing seating and focusing on upgrades in order to draw in fans new and old. Also, a lot of events offer free or reduced kids tickets. Which I think is great. At least this allows a whole family to attend and wont break the bank.

I'm a total Indycar noob, but my husband and I watched the race on TV, including some of the pre-race coverage, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I remember watching with my dad as a little kid in the 1970's, and when we recently visited Indy, we went to the museum and took the track lap/tour. Very cool place! And a great Memorial Day weekend tradition.

I totally agree! The museum and track tour are well worth your time if you're ever in the area.

Mid-Ohio was actually a pretty good race - I always root for the rookies, myself, and Rosenqvist did well.

But am I the only one who has audio problems in these broadcasts, where the commentator voices drop in and out?
