Cosworth frustrated IndyCar can't land a 3rd OEM
2004 CART Cosworth Ford IndyCar engine
2004 CART Cosworth V8-turbo IndyCar engine
As AR1.com has stated for many years, IndyCar is not going to land a 3rd engine manufacturer until it has a better TV package so that a manufacturer will get some good exposure for the $100 million+ investment they will be making. 

And so far we have been 100% correct.  Mark Miles, and those before him have struck out time and time again. With a new TV deal on the horizon, this is Mark Miles chance to change things by signing a 100% network TV deal in conjunction with good international TV distributions/deals.

If they sign another cable TV deal, ratings will be minuscule and exposure for a new OEM minimal. There's an old saying, "when in doubt, just do what's right."

AR1.com predicted that the loss of Dale Earnhardt Jr. would result in a significant drop in attendance for the NASCAR races this year. The majority of NASCAR's Earnhardt's fans give a dam about the new replacements.

Last night's two NASCAR Can-Am Duel races, which drew over 100,000 for decades, only drew an estimated 35,000 fans to Daytona Int'l Speedway, a "slim crowd, by historical standards."

Marquez was third, just 0.033 ahead of 2017 Championship rival Andrea Dovizioso.
