STANDARD PROCEDURE: SPEEDTV.com's Marshall Pruett reported new Hulman & Co. CEO Mark Miles, who oversees the IndyCar Series, “expressed his desire to see a more standardized television package to help fans follow the sport, and it has come in the form of broadcast times that will start within a relatively consistent window at most rounds.” IndyCar COO Robby Greene said, "The 2013 IZOD IndyCar Series television schedule was created with the goal of keeping things simple for our fans. Our fans asked for more consistency and we thank our television partners and our promoters for working with us to help achieve that goal” (SPEEDTV.com, 1/21)
