WILL IRL/CART CONFLICT BE A POSITIVE FOR RACING?
Published March 28, 1996
ESPN2's "RPM 2Night" host John Kernan speculates that there may be a silver lining to the IRL/CART dispute -- increased exposure for racing. Kernan asks, "Can you remember this early in the year when (newspapers) had this much coverage? ... I can't remember hearing about IndyCar racing this early in the season. I think that's good in that it got a lot of people's attention. They may start to tune in and watch the IndyCar races, get hooked and become a fan." While he won't "play favorites," Kernan said CART's racers have to admit that "they didn't make the Indianapolis 500. It helped make them" (Baltimore SUN, 3/27).
