ESPN Is Out, Versus Is In

According to the Indianapolis Star, the 2009 schedule will be split between ABC and the Versus network.  5 races including the Indy 500 will be shown on ABC however the other 4 races have yet to be decided.  Versus will show the remaining 13 races on its network which reaches 73 million homes about 24% less than the current ESPN/ESPN2 deal.  I believe this to be the first MAJOR set back since unification.
