Fans who tuned into FS1’s coverage of the Digital Ally 400 at Kansas Speedway on Saturday night were treated to one of the best 1.5-mile speedway races in quite some time. Brad Keselowski won in a dog-fight with Alex Bowman, Erik Jones, Clint Bowyer and Chase Elliott.

Although the race was a nail-biter, ratings actually decreased slightly for this event from a season ago.

The 2018 edition of the Kansas race scored a 1.23 rating, while the overnight rating for this year’s edition was a 1.17.

The top-five markets were: Richmond (4.6), Greenville (4.5), Greensboro (4.2), Charlotte (3.4) and Indianapolis (3.3).
