Conclusion: All motorsports has lost the youth of this country

06/08/15 The Firestone 600 IndyCar race in Fort Worth on NBC Sports Network Saturday night drew a 0.37 rating. Worse than an infomercial as the NBCSN noose gets tighter around IndyCar's neck. However, the family likes getting that big check from NBCSN to help fund the Leader Circle Welfare program.
