For the second straight week, the second go-round at a Cup track gets almost the same rating it got in its first race.
One correction I wanted to note, I went back and checked the Road America Xfinity ratings since this week's race was tied with it, and it looks like there may have been a couple ratings posted there after I calculated the average, so I have included those and adjusted RA's rating.
Was wondering if these were all time highs…the Cup race was close but a little behind the ‘18 Spring Bristol race and the Xfinity race tied last year’s top race at Darlington. I’ve been tracking Cup since 2015 and Xfinity since 2018, here are the top races from previous years:
2015 - Fall Martinsville - 9.48 (from memory, was wiped out in the server crash of 2016)
2016 - Spring Dover - 9.46
2017 - Fall Martinsville - 9.51
2018 - Spring Bristol - 9.67
2019 - Watkins Glen - 9.52
2020 - Spring Bristol - 9.31
2018 - New Hampshire - 9.00
2019 - Kansas - 9.53
2020 - Fall Darlington - 9.54
