Last weekend’s TV ratings are listed below. Last year the NASCAR Cup race ran on Fox in the spring and cable in September, hence the big difference in ratings. The fall race was also on NBCSN, which struggles for TV ratings. It was the most watched Cup race on the FS1 since 2017.
The F1 race, delayed until August due to Covid last year, was us a healthy 57.1% on ESPN.
