Should we be surprised by this?  NBC saw its ratings go up six percent for last week's Tropicana 400.

Was it the better quality coverage, or the new Chase?

Hmmm...

Cheryl, we have two threads on this.  Maybe you could combine them?

I am not surprised the ratings are up.  I am anxious to see what happens this weekend.  Probably up again and possibly  partly due to Jr's crash at Infineon.  

I think overall people also watch more due to the announcers.

I agree Viv.  I think people will tune in to see Junior after everything that happened to him.  Generally NH is not an exciting race but here is hoping that it surprises us.  At least we will get better coverage.

I think Kenny Wallace thought he had to replace NOTH DW and Larry Mac.  That''s why he talked twice as much and twice as fast as he should?  Either that, or they need to take his Stacker 2 away from him for 12 hours befor the race.  Give us back Johnny B!

Ron, are any of us surprised that NYC ratings aren't stellar?  This is where B.F. can't wait to build a track for all those millions of Nascar fans?  Staten Island doesn't sound too thrilled about a track.  Especially since ISC wants public funds to build it.

i think the public wouldn't mind a track here in nyc if 1. isc paid  for it themselves and2. the traffic problems are fixed.i don't blame b.f for the second one that the mayor's fault.
