Daytona 500 ratings up, highest in 7 years

With Danica Patrick starting from the pole, the Daytona 500's preliminary television ratings are much higher than last year's.


DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- With Danica Patrick starting from the pole, the Daytona 500's preliminary television ratings are much higher than last year's.


Sunday afternoon's race earned a 10.0 overnight rating and 22 share on Fox. That's up 30 percent from 2012, when rain pushed the event to a Monday night. The network said Monday it was the highest overnight rating since 2006.


Jimmie Johnson won the race while Patrick was eighth, the best finish by a woman at the Daytona 500.


Ratings represent the percentage of all homes with televisions tuned to a program. Shares
