The O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge NASCAR Nationwide Series race on Nov. 5 earned a 1.1 household coverage rating, matching the rating from the 2010 race.

Texas marked the 13th comparable race in a row that saw decreased or even ratings over its 2010 counterpart (the Chicago race was new for 2011, so did not have a comparable race).

Eighteen of the 32 races this year have seen similar or decreased ratings over their 2010 counterparts.

The Texas race averaged 1,430,000 viewers.
