INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Motor Speedway will have a "conversation" about lifting the TV blackout if all tickets are sold, according to president Doug Boles.

Boles told RTV6 Monday night the Speedway is still monitoring ticket sales, and that there are many tickets left to be sold.

Even if the track does completely sell out, lifting the blackout would not be a sure thing.

"It's a conversation we have every year," Boles said.

As it stands right now, RTV6 will begin airing a replay of the Indianapolis 500 at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday after the conclusion of the race. Special this year: We will also air the race in its entirety in an encore presentation Monday morning.
