Sounds like Fox is not the only one with increased ratings this year.  I don't remember their numbers, but this sounds like a huge increase to me (of course last year's race was rain-delayed for 4-5 hours, so that might account for the huge increase).  From Jayski:

Pocono Ratings up 27% over 2007: Turner Sports hit the track this past Sunday with the first of it's six 2008 Sprint Cup Summer Series races on Turner Network Television (TNT). TNT's coverage of the Pocono 500 at Pocono Raceway earned a 3.9 US rating, up 27% over last year's coverage on the network. The race was also the top-ranked program for the week on cable among total viewers (6,098,000), households (4,393,000), adults 18-49 (2,780,000) and adults 25-54 (3,271,000).(TNT PR)(6-10-2008)

27% is a huge jump.  Makes one wonder if people are just tired of the way Fox broadcast the races along with the announcers and wanted to see if someone else did a better job, or if the economic situation had more to do with it.  I am sure several things figured into the results.

I know you guys will jump at anything to take a jab at FOX but realistically this has to do with the fact last years was rain delayed for several hours. Which annoyed me cause my tape ran out just before the end of the race. I think the majority of NASCAR fans will watch a race regardless of the network broadcasting or the presentation, people stop watching cause they're bored with the racing or the sport in general.

Michigan will ideally tell a better tale, but a small jump for the aforementioned economic reasons will probably be the result of every race.
