With Danica Patrick starting from the pole, the Daytona 500's preliminary television ratings are much higher than last year's. Sunday afternoon's race earned a 10.0 overnight rating and 22 share on Fox. That's up 30 percent from 2012, when rain pushed the event to a Monday night. The network said Monday it was the highest overnight rating since 2006. Jimmie Johnson won the race while Patrick was eighth, the best finish by a woman at the Daytona 500. Ratings represent the percentage of all homes with televisions tuned to a program. Shares represent the percentage of all homes with TVs in use at the time. Overnight ratings measure the country's largest markets.
