If you follow Jeff Gluck on Twitter (who doesn’t), you will know that each week he puts up a poll following the race asking whether it was a good one. The recent race at Charlotte scored very high. And ratings for the Coca-Cola 600 were up. On the other hand, Gluck’s poll for Pocono rated poorly, and falling in line with the poll were declining television ratings for the Pocono 400 when compared to the 2018 edition of the race.

The race scored a 1.4 overnight Nielsen rating which is down .2 from last year’s 1.6. The top five ratings markets were Richmond (5.3), Greenville (4.9), Greensboro (4.5), Charlotte (4.0) and Norfolk (3.5).
