Olympics vs. NASCAR

I've written before about how ludicrous it is to claim that NASCAR is the second most popular sport in America. The latest example is this Los Angeles Times article, which refers to a "ratings dip" for the Olympics but still makes clear that the Daytona 500, the most popular NASCAR race, gets lower ratings than the Winter Olympics. I'm puzzled at why people continue to insist that NASCAR is the second most popular sport when that claim is demonstrably false.
