The idiocy (in all areas) during the race were not the reason for the tv ratings, you fools. Do you believe that the viewers can see into the future and knew what was to transpire?!?

More likely that anyone tuning in would tune right out when all they see if racecars being lead around by a pacecar for half the race. One lap at speed for you, one lap under yellow for me, two laps for you, two laps for me, three ....

I recorded the race on DVR. Otherwise, it would have been unwatchable. I was able to fast forward throughout the race (yellow flags), pausing to watch all the crashes. I was in disbelief at the terrible driving. They could hardly make it a lap without banging into one another. For the record, as a fan, I don't like the two-row restarts. And we know the drivers don't like them. We know they're unsafe. It's just one more stupid rule.
