It will be more exciting than Moto GP has been lately.
Hopefully, this will catch on. Nothing beats a Mile for exciting finishes!
I really miss the ESPN broadcasts of Dirt Track with Dave Despain, Larry Myers and Bill Werner from the early '90s.

Springfield Mile to air July 1 on NBC Sports
The 2012 Springfield Mile will air on July 1 at 2 p.m. (Pacific) on NBC Sports, according to AMA Pro Racing.
"We are very excited to have fans see the thrilling action that our riders take part in each and every event weekend," said Dan Johnsen, Director of AMA Pro Flat Track. "NBC Sports is the perfect platform for showcasing the extremely competitive and exciting racing found at every AMA Pro Flat Track event and we look forward to thrilling audiences across America."
Viewers will see the AMA Pro Harley-Davidson Insurance Expert Twins Class presented by Harley-Davidson Motorcycles, along with the up-and-coming AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com Pro Singles support class as they battle the legendary Springfield Mile. The Memorial Day weekend event featured some of the tightest racing and closest finishes to date in AMA Pro Flat Track.

this F1 news may or may not predict what we'll face in 2013:
"On October 14, 2012, NBC Sports Group signed a 4-year deal with Formula One to acquire the exclusive United States media rights
to broadcast the sport. The deal will run through the 2013 Formula One season to the 2016 Formula One season. The Formula One
United States media rights were previously owned by cable channel Speed for 17 years. According to the Associated Press, a spokesperson
from Fox Sports (parent company of Speed) said that they had been out-bid by another network during contract negotiations.
NBC said that the deal will provide over 100 hours of programming across NBC and its cable channel NBC Sports Network.
Four races will be broadcast on NBC. These four races are (as of the 2013 Formula One season), the Canadian Grand Prix,
and the final three races of the season.
The other 15 races will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network.
However, there could be scheduling conflicts. NBC Sports Network also broadcasts the IndyCar Series,
which could result in the [F1] races being broadcast on NBC Sports Group's live-stream platform.
NBC has also said that NBC Sports Network will also broadcast all [F1] practice and qualifying sessions and will most likely
have a pit reporter at every race and have a booth in the United States. It will also use the world feed produced by FOM."
so it appears that both top-drawer open wheel series will be seen on a patchwork of outlets -
just as AMA Pro SX, MX, & road racing have been this year
I sense a business opportunity.....!

Of course, Verizon dropped MAV as of Jan 3. I hope that NBC Sports carries the races this year. Last year was the first year since 1980 that I didn't see at least one National. I plan to not let that happen this year. I'm hoping to see at least 3 Miles (both Springfield Miles and the Indy Mile) as well as the Hagerstown 1/2 Mile.
