NASCAR’s overnight TV ratings were down for the fifth consecutive week on Sunday for the Auto Club 400.
According to Sports Media Watch, the Auto Club Speedway event scored a 3.5 rating.
This is down 13 percent from the 4.0 rating the previous two years scored. It marks the lowest rating for the race since the rain-shortened event in 2012, which drew a 3.4 rating.
The event faced competition from round 2 games of the NCAA Tournament. However, the tournament also saw a drop in ratings as its numbers were down by double digits.
When NASCAR returns at Martinsville Speedway on April 3 after the first off-week of the year, FOX Sports 1 will have its first of seven Sprint Cup Series broadcasts this season. This will mark the second year the channel has carried regular season races.
