Well, the final television ratings have come in for last Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, and the news is all positive. The final Nielson Rating was a 2.6, which equals a 13-percent increase from a 2.3 in last year’s race. The race also reached 4.3-million viewers , which was a five-percent gain from last year’s race which reached 4.1-million.
The overnight ratings that were available on Monday showed the race tracking for an 8-percent increase in ratings, but that has been dwarfed by the final rating.
.@FoxTV earned a 2.6 final rating and 4.3 million viewers for Sunday's Coke 600 at Charlotte, up 13% and 5%, respectively, from a 2.3 rating and 4.1 million viewers for last year's race.
