LABOR OF LOVE: The STAR's Cavin was asked if the Boston Consulting Group's proposed Labor Day end to the IndyCar's schedule was "really about the NFL, or does it have to do with NBCSN and the NASCAR Chase?" Cavin wrote, "It's largely about the football season." Cavin: "As for NASCAR, would it be the worst thing to have same-day races as often as possible? If the scheduling works out, and we’ll start to see it soon, it could be a benefit to IndyCar to be NASCAR’s lead-in or, as I’m told could happen, IndyCar could follow NASCAR next year on Sunday of Labor Day at Auto Club Speedway. To me, that’s a chance for a ratings boost. As I’ve said, I think there’s a good chance that the synergy of NBC Sports Network having three forms of motor sports is better for IndyCar than initially meets the eye" (INDYSTAR.com, 9/26).
