ESPN says the Nielson Company made a correction to the television ratings for the May 14 5-Hour Energy NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Dover International Speedway. Instead of remaining the same, as originally reported, ratings actually rose.
The race, telecast on ESPN, officially received a 1.5 U.S. national household coverage rating, up from the 1.3 it received on ABC in 2010.
ESPN says the ratings were corrected because of a rain delay that occurred during the race.
