Saturday Final Nationals: Three-Year High for NASCAR Bristol Night Race on NBC

NBC was Saturday night’s top network in all key figures (except adults 18-34)
with “NASCAR Monster Cup Series: Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race” from Bristol, Tenn.

It jumps up 6 percent in total audience from two years ago when it had aired on NBCSN (3.61 million in 2015) — the bulk of the 2016 race was rain-delayed, pushed to a Sunday afternoon and televised on CNBC (2.67 million viewers). 2017 was the highest-rated, most-watched edition of the Bristol night race since 2014 (3.2 household rating, 5.1 million viewers for ABC).
