|IndyCar global exposure going forward|
Many IndyCar ride-buyers are from overseas. They know IndyCar exists because ESPN International has made sure IndyCar is broadcast in over 140 countries. Up and coming drivers have seen IndyCar on TV for years.
With the New NBC IndyCar TV deal ESPN International is gone and, except for the USA and Canada, it's lights out globally for IndyCar.
Zero Exposure. It all goes pitch black.
As a result, rumor has it the steady stream of foreign ride-buyers will begin to dry up.
