Since Richmond this past weekend was race 10 of 18, I did some quick calculations on the first half of the years viewers:

Average viewers of races 1-9:
2015 (ESPN): 562,000
2016 (FOX): 723,111
2017 (FOX): 704,000
2018 (FOX): 639,888

There are a lot of crossover fans and the rain delayed NASCAR race airing at the same time is what killed NHRA's ratings in my opinion.

Well, almost double the viewers from last week, but once again another race with the lowest Fox ratings since they took over:

No change in viewers from last week. At least it wasn't another lowest Fox rated show (but it was close).

I refuse to watch the TV broadcast. It’s horrible. But I’m not sure I’m going to renew my All Access subscription after this year either...

Not trying to defend All Access, but I'm interested to know why you don't think you'll renew.

Speaking here on my behalf Warren....

While there are some aspects of the AllAccess live stream that I don't care for, that's not a factor on whether I will renew or not. For me renewal in 2019 will depend on the cost.

Initially and in the second season it was $99 and it was discounted 10% to NHRA members.

This season they jacked it up to $125 and discounted it 25% to NHRA members for a very limited time.

Even as an NHRA member receiving the discount, that gave me pause. But I did subscribe.

Another price increase and/or a lesser discount in 2019 will have me reconsidering.

Lastly, for several reasons I can't stand the Fox/NHRA broadcast. If I don't subscribe to AllAccess, I simply won't watch.

Default Epping Results

Not good... not good at all.

After Epping, we are now at 8 out of the 13 races have been the lowest rated since Fox took over. After Epping, it's now race #3 of the lowest since the 2015 ESPN shows.

Glendora may be celebrating and/or promoting sellout crowds, but when it comes to the TV viewing audience, it is not translating at all. 1/2 of the viewers left from the previous week, and 1.2 million watched Epping last year. This year only 374K, that is the lowest rated show at that event in the 4 years I've been logging it and tied with Virginia for the second lowest rated show of the year.

Both Epping and Englishtown (now Virginia) had the highest rated record-breaking shows last year. This year, approx. 1 million viewers have left both shows:

Saturday or Sunday's show didn't make it to the top 150 for comparison, so no link(s)

I have to suspect that summer has to have something to do with it. The weather in the North East has been really nice and it puts a big dent in my own TV viewing.

If that's the case, then the North East, as well as the rest of the country, was absolutely brutal last 2 years to have over 800,000 to 1 million more viewers in a two week span than this year. Also, Epping was the third race this year with the lowest ratings since 2015 ESPN. The other two were Phoenix and Gainesville. Those were not in the summer.
