I've said it before and I'll say it again ... if a race is pushed to Monday and the track has lights, it should be run on Monday night at 7pm.Seems like NASCAR does better on Monday night that any other timeslot. Might be something to consider going forward for a lot of tracks...
Some fans will complain about anything. A later start on a Monday means more people can watch. If it starts at 1pm, they'll complain that they have to work. If it's 6pm, they'll complain that it's unfair to ticket holders or teams or something. If it's on cable, they'll bitch that they can't afford it. If it's on OTA, they'll bitch that they can't afford a $10 antenna.Half the Daytona racing thread has corkers complaining about the late start that ran into the night. What can we say to them to make it all better...how about nothing. I learned a long time ago I have no control about start times, the powers that be and are invested in the success of the sport do. That usually works so much better than mine or anybody else's opinion.
Most watched thing on TV Monday night? Nah, NASCAR is dead remember?Averaged 10.041M from 7:57-8:10
Let the drivers show more personality, keep up the positive schedule changes and get the Gen 7 package right? Yeah, the 20s are gonna be real good.Great numbers, I'm starting to think NASCAR has a chance at a renaissance/resurgence in popularity in the 2020s if the sport plays it right
Also we’re in a time where you still have some solid long time drivers and then the young crop is starting to mature (Larson, Blaney, Elliott)Let the drivers show more personality, keep up the positive schedule changes and get the Gen 7 package right? Yeah, the 20s are gonna be real good.
I think it’s in a good spot. The fact that the president of barstool does a weekly podcast with Clint Bowyer is huge I think for our sport in bringing young eyes to it.Don't remind me, I still miss all those 2000s guys.
Plus drag racing in Phoenix last Sun was a sell out crowd also.I think it’s in a good spot. The fact that the president of barstool does a weekly podcast with Clint Bowyer is huge I think for our sport in bringing young eyes to it.
Also elephant in the room is if Hallie Deegan becomes a legit driver that will change the ballgame. I could see her reaching Dale Jr type of celebrity status easily.
Overall racing is healthy in America again, IndyCar is on an upswing, NASCAR seems to be rebounding, record attendance at the Rolex 24, and sprint car racing is more popular than ever. I’m liking it
The ratings don't matter.take note deathbedders
Hmmm. It beat Smackdown with the younger demo but got blown out by marquee NBA games...Cup down about 4.5% in viewership, 5% in rating.
