03/12/18 ABC earned a 1.0 overnight rating for yesterday's season-opening Verizon IndyCar Series Firestone GP on the streets of St. Petersburg, Florida up 11% from a 0.9 for last year's race.

The 1.0 represents about 1.3 million viewers. How many times does AR1.com have to say that 100% of IndyCar races should be on network TV to ensure a minimum of 1 million viewers per race?

At 1+ million viewers per race (not just half the races Mark Miles) sponsors will be knocking down the doors.
