Do they get enough revenue from only being on (very aggressively
defended) pay TV to make up for direct sponsors not being happy
with the loss of audience?
For what little it may be worth, In the USA both
Indycar and NASCAR viewership is down.
"The network released its final 2016 numbers on Wednesday -- they
showed an average audience of 488,000 viewers for its 10 IndyCar

"NASCAR suffers another season of major viewership declines
2016By Matt Yoder on 11/22/2016
The final race of the season tells only part of the story of NASCAR’s continued ratings freefall. NASCAR saw declines in 25 of 36 points-
paying races this year according to Jayski’s television ratings site.
Some of those drops can be attributed to rain delays and network
switches, but it’s certainly an overall trend that continues to be
very troubling." http://awfulannouncing.com/2016/nascar-suffers-another-season-of-major-viewership-declines.html
