I would have to think viewership is going to drop like a rock if they don't start showing more of the race and less commercials.

I don't think Danica had much effect myself. If any single drive pulled more viewers I would give Happy Harvick the credit. I was expecting him to give them hell but circumtances stopped it.

Danica winning the pole was a setup by NASCAR to generate interest and TV rating in their dying product.
