DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - 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.
