I love short track racing with all my heart

- A short track somewhere
There were more people under the age of 50 watching basketball than there were TOTAL viewers for NASCAR.
I live just outside of NYC, by me nobody watches nascar regardless of what else is the on.I know all of my friends were watching the NCAA tournament. I can also tell you that if that wasn't on they would've been watching something else not named NASCAR. Can't just assume they're losing ratings because other things are on at the same time.
Sometimes it's as simple as people aren't interested.
Damn I thought the presence of Button and Kimi would get some more people to watch.Tough one again.
Cup - 3.129M (3.731M)
Xfinity - 815k (1.075M)
Truck - 697k (719k)
We have no way of knowing the numbers if they weren't there.Damn I thought the presence of Button and Kimi would get some more people to watch.
The last four races all had about 600k less viewers than last year, Daytona had 700k less, Fontana 250k.We have no way of knowing the numbers if they weren't there.
Ratings won’t matter in that regard.If Chase comes back and they’re still losing double digit percentage points of viewers, it could be scary for the next TV deal.
If anything it probably should’ve been more of a factor last year when UNC was playing in the late Sunday window and had a bigger audience. There’s probably more fan overlap there than with any other school.Not surprising, look at the numbers that the NCAA pulled in on Sunday
It’s gotten worse since Chase went out but the Clash, 500, and Fontana were already trending down.Damn I thought the presence of Button and Kimi would get some more people to watch.
It can't all be because of Chase, right?
Uh, no, no, no. That's the response from each of my organs.f the metrics. make every cup race saturday/saturday night and the organic response will be yes yes yes
Ratings won’t matter in that regard.
MLS got $2.5bn from Apple TV and literally nobody else was interested.
That's not true as Amazon paid to have a few exclusive games like apple did.
If there’s a silver lining it’s that once again Bristol dirt will be the Trucks’ most-watched race of the season, and that Cup on Easter got a bigger audience than the previous two FOX races last month (Atlanta/COTA).
Cup - 3.45M (4.007M)
Truck - 1.057M (1.167M)
Cup heats - 481k
Truck heats - 272k
I don't think easter night race is bad for ratings. Probably is for attendance at the track but most people are home watching TV by 7pm. The loss of over half a million from last year is the newness wearing off of the gimmick.
Elliott is a gimmickThe question is, how much of the ratings decline is because of Chase Elliott?
The question is, how much of the ratings decline is because of Cody Ware?
I don’t love Chase but in some ways I think he carries a lot of fans.
Well.....and Chase coming back lol!First viewership bump of the season at Martinsville, courtesy of moving from Saturday night to Sunday afternoon.
Cup - 2.218M (1.885M)
Xfinity - 894k (854k)
Truck - 347k (455k)
Other: IndyCar Long Beach 1.026M (1.055M)

The Elliott factor
He's back.How does Elliot factor in it? He was in last years race.
Yeah, I could tell by the number I heard of lawnmowers starting upEveryone tuned in for a few laps and went back to other things. There’s better racing all around in IndyCar, NHRA, Xfinity Series, and other stuff in my opinion sometimes with the Gen7 package needing improvement.

You probably weren't around when Jr was off for his concussion, or watched a quarter of the stands empty when Jr wrecked out. Chase is the most popular driver in the series. We have Chase fans here that have said they didn't watch much of the series when he was gone.Yes, I know he was back. My question was what does that have to do with the comparison to last years race which also included chase Elliott?
