2022 Progressive AFT Season Draws Record Viewership Ratings on FOX Sports and FansChoice.tv

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (October 21, 2022) – Progressive American Flat Track is excited to report record-breaking viewership ratings for the 2022 season with two races still to air on FOX Sports.

The results demonstrate the immediate success of both the new multi-year agreement with FOX Sports – which features Progressive AFT in highly desirable time slots as a key part of a powerful overall motorsports line-up – and the much-welcomed relaunch of FansChoice.tv.

Even with broadcasts of the epic Mission Volusia Half-Mile Finale Doubleheader yet to further bolster viewership numbers, the 2022 season already boasts the most television viewers of any year since the series’ rebrand in 2017:

  • According to Nielsen, television viewership for the 2022 season currently totals 2,598,000. That number eclipses each of the previous two seasons by over 750,000 viewers with two races still to air.
  • Televised hours have expanded exponentially, totaling 139 hours of linear coverage to date (51 hours on FS1 and 88 hours on FS2) compared with a total of just 17 hours in 2021.
  • Total viewership, including both broadcast and digital viewership from FansChoice.tv, YouTube, and Facebook, has reached 3,051,399 viewers and is on pace to smash the previous high mark set in 2018 by hundreds of thousands of viewers

The Mission Volusia Half-Mile Finale I will premiere on FS1 this upcoming Sunday, October 23, at 11:00 a.m. ET/8:00 a.m. PT. The Mission Volusia Half-Mile Finale II will air on FS1 one week later, on Sunday, October 30, at 10:30 a.m. ET/7:30 a.m. PT.
