No. 6: Inaugural Nashville Race Delivers Electric Excitement

The most anticipated new INDYCAR venue in at least a decade became the most-watched series race on an NBC cable channel. The combination drew 1.212 million viewers, the most for a series race on cable since 1998. With the cars approaching 200 mph as they descended from the bridge, the start’s first turn was one of the best-designed corners in street course racing. Herta’s opportunity to win was lost when he banged his car off the wall at the corner following the second pass over the bridge with five laps to go. Ericsson went on to lead 37 laps and score the victory, his second of the season and of his INDYCAR career.
