The next opportunity for ABC to better a rating from last season comes on Sunday, May 30th, when the green flag is scheduled to drop for the 94th Indianapolis 500. The 2009 '500' earned a 4.0, bumping the ABC season average to 1.5. ABC will also air the Camping World Grand Prix at The Glen on July 4th, and the Honda Indy Toronto on July 18th.

Ratings Are In
Posted by James at 3:12 AM
The ratings for the first ABC race of the season are in, and they're not great. This past weekend's Road Runner Turbo Indy 300 in Kansas drew a .8 overnight rating, down from a .9 non-Indy ABC average in 2009 (Milwaukee .6, Iowa .8, Watkins Glen .9, & Toronto 1.0). The St. Pete GP, which was originally scheduled to air on the American Broadcasting Company's network in March was rained out, drawing a .6 before moving the Monday morning race to ESPN 2.
