Sprint Cup: Another Slight Drop For NASCAR on FOX


Once again, overnight ratings declined for NASCAR action on FOX.

Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup STP 400 from Kansas drew a 3.7 overnight rating on FOX, down a tick from the inaugural edition of the race last year, which took place in June (3.8).

There was no race on the comparable date last year, which was Easter Sunday.

This marks the sixth of eight NASCAR telecasts on FOX this season to have a decline in overnight ratings.

CORRECTION 5/7/12: The STP 400 was the sixth of eight NASCAR telecasts to suffer a decline in overnight ratings, not the seventh of nine.
