  • NASCAR ratings continue upward trend

    Looks like yesterday's Atlanta race pulled in a 5.6 overnight rating.

    This compares to a 4.7 overnight last year (last year ended up pulling a 5.2 in the final ratings). This is a 19% gain and the highest Atlanta rating since 2003 according to Jayski.

    The ratings in Columbus are absolutely off the charts right now.

      That's a pretty healthy gain.

        I thought NASCAR was going to become less popular, once Indy Car Racin' unified?

        Maybe NASCAR is getting even more of the "disenchanted" open-wheel fan.

          That's all well and good, but what were the ratings for the 18-49 yr olds?

          Vegas ratings look promising

            How odd that Jim Wilke didn't post this first. He's usually all over the ratings discussions.

              Nah, he's into car counts now.

                  1) NASCAR fans.
                  2) Fans of "other" series that are afflicted with "attendance and ratings" envy.

                    That may be all well and good but the crowds sucked big time. And it is still the only racing on at this time. Only reason I watched. No real competition for them yesterday on TV.

                      Welcome to the Atlanta sports scene. The city where the NLCS has a ton of empty seats.

                        Beat me to it. Atlanta has never been a great "in person" sports town.

                          The mega snow storm in the Ohio Valley surely helped the ratings. It will probably help the population in about 9 months too.

                            Well if the trend continues the rating will also go up in the final, which means that the Ohio Valley while a microcosm of America, still lowballs NASCAR ratings.

                              Hey Jim, I thought Miles (old twinkle toes) had that demographic all figured out
                              (well at least the female demo)
