Earlier this week, NBC released a series of commercials promoting their NASCAR coverage and featuring Nick Offerman, an actor in NBC's Parks & Recreation. It was a company man making a company ad for a company that propelled him to stardom; nothing unusual. However, one line in the ad, quoted below, has rattled the…
An average of 385,000 viewers per race is an increase of 86 percent over 2013, but still doesn't even swing a stick at American sports, including NASCAR's sinking numbers — numbers that still pulled 5 million-plus for the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami.
