Well guess tomorrow won't give us an idea of where JHR is going, they're not taking part in the test with the hybrid tomorrow so we will have to wait 2 weeks for Laguna Seca. Oh, that's Siegel's home track so.....

Interested to see how this plays out. Hope it stops being a distraction for the team and series.

I was just thinking, he isn't the only driver to say stupid things in the series. I don't know if Hertas hot mic moment from Road America has been mentioned here. But it was bad.

I think it's more the response than the action, just like Nixon it wasn't the spying but the coverup that got most folks. The oh that's just what happens and I don't believe it was what made Hollinger step in. Wonder how long they have a deal for or if he can split at the end of the season, sucks to lose cars but no sponsors coming on can't be good for his wallet

Herta's moment was another of his petulant child moments. He later swerved directly at another car but noting called there either, was no need to try to close off the corner like he did and just looked childish. But I guess when NBC and Indy want to pub you as the future and the best best you get a big head


Rumors abound on comment sections and the twit machine that Fox is set to announce they'll take over Indy coverage at the end of this deal. I guess they'll run similar to Peacock but on the FSP app. Long day of only racing on Fox if they do with the 500 and 600, gotta hope the 500 doesn't run late. At least it doesn't appear they are going the nascar 5 different partners during the season package cause that's fun

And apparently just confirmed Fox

https://racer.com/2024/06/13/indycar...deal-with-fox/

Sounds like streaming will be added under the Venu Sports package of the ESPN/Fox/WarnerDiscovery venture

All races will be on the mothership, no cable or streaming only. Actually makes them the only fully on OTA TV, Cup has a few streaming only and TNT races. 500 practice will be on FS1/2 and Indy NXT will be covered on them as well

Provisional 2025 Race Schedule. That's a very long off season.

I predict bad things happening with IndyCar on Fox.

Let's see what happens with rights in South America.

Barber in early May rather than late April? That's strange.

Why bad things, Indy has shown on OTA pumps the numbers well. Fox has no summer Sunday TV after Memorial Day. Long Beach could be a challenge but guessing the Cup race opposite will be on FS1 as they've been doing more. They'll be able to pursue TBell and Hinch probably right away, they won't likely poach Till or Diffey given their NBC connections.

Barber has bounced around that area a few years, Easter can move it around I believe. It's gone from April 1 to May 1 without consistent early vs late pattern.

Season ending in August?! That's very cautious and even if there are other things happenimg that may impact usual events in September.

Might have been a great opportunity to run a couple of rounds overseas?

The early end date is a feature not a bug of the new TV contract. Fox gives IndyCar more money and exposure but on the flip side Fox has no use for IndyCar dates after the Labor Day weekend as that‘s when the NFL season kicks off, which is a much bigger draw (and was much more expensive to acquire).

Overseas rounds are niche and don’t really help the series grow where it matters, which is in its core markets of the US and Canada.

If by the core market you mean TV viewers, wouldn't having overseas races help grow the core market?
