A few weeks ago, NASCAR and NBC Sports seemed to be building momentum with the television rating surrounding the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.
However, after a lackluster final three races of the year from a ratings standpoint, ratings for NBC Sports’ half of the 2019 NASCAR Cup Series season ended up flat with where they were a year ago.
Sunday’s Cup Series championship race at Homestead-Miami Speedway scored a 2.2 rating (down from a 2.5 in 2018) and registered 3.7-million viewers (down from 4.1-million in 2018).
