Saturday night's Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway generated a solid television audience for ABC.
The fifth race of the Chase earned a 3.2 U.S. rating, averaging 5,396,000 viewers, according to the Nielsen Company. The rating is even with the rating for last year's race, which also aired on ABC on a Saturday night.
So far every race of the Chase run on its scheduled date (the Chicagoland opener was postponed to a Monday afternoon by rain) has drawn higher or at least flat ratings from the 2010 season.
Sunday's Good Sam Club 500 at Talladega Superspeedway will air on ESPN.
