During commercial breaks they showed only an ESPN logo. Not like last season when the feed was still on the air and only muted.

ESPN subscription was way cheaper this year but I still find this unacceptable.

I couldn't make ESPN Play.com work. I tried Firefox and IE on Windows, and Firefox and Chrome on Android. Nothing worked, so I missed a third of the race. I found a good ABC stream, but I missed Latin announcers Andrés Agulla and Alex Pombo.

I found it pretty boring, but anyway, Montoya won on merit.

Did the ABC announcers ever mention Phoenix?

Now you mention it, I don't think they did.

Obviously ABC wants to advertise one thing they know can get (semi) respectable ratings later this year. They only care of the 500, and probably have these other leftover races written in contract as mandatory "network responsibilities" because the series wouldn't give the exclusivity for it otherwise. Just as I suspect is also the case with Le Mans - WEC on Eurosport, and before with LMS

where I watch I can see the races without any commercials at all (IMSA, not Indycar). Just the stream on the series' website.

Thought so too, I'm quite happy I only picked the one race option. Paying for that logo for about a third of the time really annoyed me. At least I got that in HD though, whereas the actual race was close to unwatchable on my TV...



Pretty uneventful race at the front, but some good racing behind. Hopefully Power will be back next time.

Holy crap. I missed this in it's entirety,which is a shame as I generally like Saint Pete. Spring break last week and into the weekend with the fam took me away from this but certainly didn't expect it to be so soon.

Good on JPM for the win. Not bad for a cheeseburger eater!

Nice to see ratings are up. Hope that trend continues.

Just watched the race today. Great win by Monty, glad to see he hasn't last year's title disappointment get him down. I can't help but think how much better his results would have been in F1 had they used slicks. But I digress...

Great drive by Daly, never looked flustered up front and typical street circuit traffic jam in turn 4

Montoya made that look easy just cruising while everyone scrapped, he seems to do that when he is comfortable

Pagenaud was closing at the end, but seemed to struggle passing the lapped cars.
