NASCAR Homestead TV Rating

NBC Sunday afternoon drew a 2.7 overnight rating for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series finale from Homestead-Miami Speedway, which saw Martin Truex Jr. take home his first Cup title. The race also was the Cup Series finale for Dale Earnhardt Jr.

The 2.7 is the lowest figure for a Cup finale since '13, when ESPN also drew a 2.7. The '12 race also drew a 2.7 overnight.

The 2.7 rating is down 16% from a 3.2 overnight for the same race last year, which saw Jimmie Johnson secure his seventh Cup title. The race two years ago on NBC drew a 4.2 overnight for Kyle Busch's first-ever win, but that telecast was delayed by 90 minutes. It ended up taking the primetime spot on NBC normally reserved for "Football Night in America." Austin Karp/SBD
