NBC Sports Network says its coverage of the IndyCar Series at Long Beach is up 45 percent in both the national ratings and its number of viewers.
The cable channel drew 468,000 viewers and a .32 in the ratings, for Sunday's race at Long Beach. That's up from 323,000 viewers and the .22 rating from the same race in 2011.
It was a welcome climb for NBC Sports, which scored a .25 for the April 1 race at Barber. It was the network's first race of the season and it ran head-to-head with a compelling NASCAR race broadcast on Fox.
Through two races this season, NBC Sports' numbers are up 9 percent in both ratings and viewers from the same two races last year.
