Sports Execs: IndyCar gives fans poor in-person experience Sports execs feel that college football gives fans the best in-person experience, according to a Turnkey Sports Poll conducted in October. Respondents were asked to pick up to three sports, and 41% picked college football. The NHL ranked second with 33% of the respondents, followed by college basketball at 30%. IndyCar, Pro Bull Riding and pro tennis ranked lowest with only 3% (Turnkey Sports).

Hideous looking car - what is that blob in front of the rear wheels?
