    Thanks, T.D.

    Oddly, I haven't seen a press release on the series' web site.

        Thanks, JB. I don't think they're counting qualifications, but that brings up an interesting point....

        Why would more people tune in to qualifications (where sometimes half the show includes an empty track) than the race?

          My guess is that qualifying wasn't competing with NASCAR for viewers. It could be that NASCAR Fans are tuning in SPEED when there isn't NASCAR on TV. If CART is on, then CART is what they'll watch. (And maybe, some day, they'll tune in for a race as well.)

          What is interesting is that Saturday qualifying didn't have NASCAR as a lead-in. A repeat of CART Friday Night was on immediately before Saturday Qualifying.

            Because, on a road course, qualifying is the race?



            Hey, does anyone have a published account of the IRL Nashville rating?
            No weather forecasts are ever guaranteed, even if confidence level is high. Even a 99% probability will miss 1% of the time. That's the best anybody can do when predicting highly complex events.

              My guess is that qualifying like in F1 is the whole show!
              Drive your azz off to make it as far up front as possable. When the train pulls out on sunday you had better grab a spot because that line up wont change much after that. Follow the leader commences with the dropping of the green flag!

                So cart fans and nascar fans have similar demographics?

                  I get more of a kick out of CART qualifying than the race itself. Much more exciting.

                  As far as the ratings are concerned, I guess we won't see Lowe's trying to figure out the best placement for TV viewing of their logo on a CART car anytime soon.
