with an 18.9 rating in Nielsen’s overnight numbers from 8-11 p.m. ET, according to TheWrap.
The 2018 NASCAR Daytona 500 earned a 5.3 rating and 9.3 million viewers on FOX, down 20% in ratings
and 22% in viewership from last year (6.6, 11.9M) and down 20% and 18% respectively from 2016 (6.6,
11.4M). The 2018 NASCAR Daytona 500 audience was the smallest in the history of the race
"Like NASCAR ratings generally, Daytona 500 ratings have fallen off dramatically from the 2000s.
From 2001-08, the race had at least a 10.0 rating and 17 million viewers in all-but-one year. In the
final year of that run — just ten years ago — it had a 10.2 rating and 17.8 million."
Is it all because the NASCAR viewers don't appreciate the liberal slant of NASCAR drivers, sponsors
