Complaining about commercials is about as common as complaining about the weather.  On Saturday night, despite terrible weather forming in the Gulf, the Daytona area of Florida was spared from rain of any kind.  And complaints about the commercials went by the wayside, as most fans were grateful for the breaks from all of the mayhem on the track.  For those who would still like to know precisely how many ads there were, and how much time they took during the broadcast, here is this week’s breakdown.
