ARCA President Ron Drager explains why more of their races are not televised

+
NRR: You guys have a great product for television. So why aren't more races televised? RD: We will negotiate the best deal we can for the tour and our most-willing partner has been SPEED. It's a partnership where they've agreed to do 10 races and we look at that as a glass half-full scenario. On the flip side, that leaves 10 races without television and that's the glass half-empty. This is especially true when there's a percentage of our fans that would rather see the other 10 tracks televised instead. SPEED is already at the current venues and there's a bottom line to everything. The cost of production lends itself better to the races where a production staff and cameras are already set up. We're appreciative that they air Toledo and IRP and we would love it if you drive up to Salem if you're in the area this weekend. The complete interview can be read here.
