04/25/16 Yesterday's Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama on NBC Sports Network earned a 0.26 TV rating, up a few percentage points from the 2015 rating of 0.25 but still infomercial numbers while IndyCar continues to hang from the NBCSN noose. Try telling a sponsor your TV rating is 0.26 and see if they don't laugh you out the door. IndyCar must move 100% of its races to ABC network TV if it is ever going to grow. ABC will deliver over a 1.0 average rating per race and then sponsors will show interest.
