NASCAR on Fox continued its tradition of engaging Grand Marshalls on Sunday with the Hip Hop Duo, Tag Team.  Thanks to Geico, the first thing a lot of people think of when they see them now is dancing while thinking of ice cream.  After the race, the original song, “Whoomp, There it Is,” could also be altered to, “Tossin’ Joey Up in the Air, Now Bubba Tryin’ to Catch Him, He falls down.”  There were eight Geico ads during this broadcast, and for those who like to know precisely how many others there were, and how much time they took during the broadcast, here is this week’s breakdown.
