Fontana Ratings Jump

The move of California Speedway into the second race of the season slot paid off for NASCAR and FOX on Sunday when the Auto Club 500 drew ratings more than 12 percent higher than last season's second race.

FOX's broadcast of Sunday's Auto Club 500 from California Speedway drew an overnight Nielsen Media Research rating of 7.1 and a 14 share.

The rating is 12.7 percent higher than the 6.3 overnight rating for last year's second Nextel Cup race, the Subway 400 at North Carolina Speedway at Rockingham, and 26.8 percent higher than the 5.6 for 2004's first race at California, the May 2 Auto Club 500.
