2013 NASCAR Ratings Wrap-Up

Here are the ratings for every NASCAR Sprint Cup race in the 2013 season.

Every race on Fox outrated every race on cable, and only one race on ABC was able to beat any Fox races, even the Sprint Unlimited, the Irwin Tools Night Race from Bristol. As usual, ratings slowly tapered off after the Daytona 500 with the four March races outrating every non-Daytona race.

Other than the Irwin Tools Night Race, the most-watched race not on Fox was the Coke Zero 400 on TNT, followed by the Bank of America 500, the most-watched Chase race, on ABC. ESPN’s most watched race, as usual, was the Brickyard 400, followed by the AdvoCare 500 from Atlanta. The most-watched Chase race on ESPN was the Ford 400, followed by the Camping World RV Sales 500. The Camping World RV Sales 301 was TNT’s most-watched race outside Daytona.

The least-watched Sprint Cup race on broadcast was ABC’s remaining race, the Federated Auto Parts 400 – which still outrated every Chase race on cable. The least-watched race overall was the Geico 400, but due to weather delays that race finished on ESPN2; the portion of the race that aired on ESPN had 3.623 million viewers, which would still make it the only points race with fewer viewers than the Sprint All-Star Race. The next-least viewed race was the Sylvania 300; the least-viewed non-Chase race was the Quaker State 400 on TNT, a race bumped to Sunday by rain, and the least-viewed non-Chase race to run at its normal time was the Cheez-It 355 at the Glen, followed by the Party in the Poconos 400 on TNT. The least-viewed non-Chase race on ESPN not on a road course was the Pure Michigan 400 – which outrated seven of the ten Chase races (and three of TNT’s six races).
