The yearly Nascar race at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., might have passed without raising many eyebrows in the sports world. It was previously known as the STP 500 and 5-Hour Energy 400. It was won this year by Jimmie Johnson. All fairly unsurprising stuff — until you realize that its title sponsor this year was a certain cartoon character known to inhabit a pineapple under the sea. Yes, it was the SpongeBob SquarePants 400, and it came in at No. 9 on our top 10.
In non-Nickelodeon-related sports news, the NBA Playoffs were also very strong. Enough Slingbox users were watching the playoffs on their phones, tablets and laptops to place all four semifinal series on the list. We also saw NHL Playoff action for the first time in a while, as the Chicago-Minnesota series snuck its way into No. 10. But once again, the UEFA Champions League reigned supreme. It will be interesting to see how high the Champions League’s numbers get next week, when the final, between Barcelona and the winner of Wednesday’s match between Real Madrid and Juventus.
We’ll be back next week with another set of top 10s.
