The overnight ratings for the race from Atlanta was a 4.7 rating. Last year this race was done on a Monday due to rain so we can not compare ratings from last year.
The Toyota camp along with Michael Waltrip's sponsor NAPA, if you probability did not know by now, is not too happy with the performance by Michael Waltrip this season. He is still negative in points going into the race at Bristol.
It is only a rumor at this point of time, but the number 36 Toyota driven by Jeremy Mayfield and the team could be shutting down. So far this team has not qualified for any races this season and is going to Bristol with the COT to qualify.
One NASCAR Now note: Mark Martin is going to sit down with Ginn Racing in September to talk about the 2008 racing season. He might do a full schedule next year.
