IRL supports Versus position

The IndyCar Series issued the following statement regarding the ongoing carriage dispute between VERSUS and DirectTV:

We have been in constant communication with our television partner VERSUS regarding its negotiations with DirecTV. Talks have been ongoing and, while we're hopeful for a speedy resolution, we do not expect coverage of the Indy Japan 300 on DirecTV this weekend.

As announced earlier in the week, there will be comprehensive streaming coverage on We could not be happier with the partnership we have forged in just over a year with VERSUS and look forward to a long and healthy relationship. Both VERSUS and the IndyCar Series share the frustration of DirecTV subscribers and we are hopeful that the two sides will continue talks and that DirecTV subscribers will have the ability to view IndyCar Series coverage for the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
