While the Indianapolis 500 might have been exciting on the track, especially for Sunday’s winner Tony Kanaan, the race turned out to be a historic failure on television. According to SportsMediaWatch.com, the race drew its worst TV ratings in the 27 years that the event has been broadcast live. The telecast on ABC drew a 3.8 overnight rating, which is a seven-percent drop from last year.
