Overnight TV ratings were down again for Sunday’s Food City 500 from Bristol Motor Speedway.
According to Sports Media Watch, the race scored a 3.2 rating which marks a 27 percent decline from when the event last ran in its scheduled time slot in 2013.
Over the last two years, this race has been impacted by rain and a majority of the event was broadcasted on FS1.
The rating is also the lowest since FOX began broadcasting the Bristol race in 2001. It ties with the 2014 Darlington event for the fourth lowest rating in the history of NASCAR on FOX.
Overnight ratings indicate the race trailed the NBA playoff game featuring the Cavaliers and Pistons, but final ratings could put the race ahead of the game.
