FOX Sports sees significant year over year NASCAR TV ratings increase

The Daytona 500 was rained out, too

Viewership was up for NASCAR on FOX this season, remarkable given that its biggest race of the season, the Daytona 500, was postponed to President’s Day Monday in February.

It’s the first time FOX NASCAR television ratings increased despite the biggest race of the season suffering a weather-related postponement, a testament to the increases throughout the rest of the spring and early summer.

The FOX portion of the schedule concluded over the weekend at Sonoma, with NBC Sports taking over for the remainder of the season.

Except for the Daytona 500, the nine Cup Series races that aired on big FOX averaged 3.773 million viewers, up four percent from the previous season. The six Cup Series races that aired on FS1 averaged 2.389 million viewers, a 13 percent increase from 2023.
