Before the Cup race on Sunday, a few things were pretty sure bets (i.e. Ryan Blaney doing well and contending for the win); some were harder to say (i.e. Ross Chastain fighting to the front from mid-pack, after showing some strength in practice); and some were complete question marks (i.e. if Denny Hamlin could change his luck, and change a second-place start into a win). After the Cup race, the surest thing of all is that Tony Stewart would not be dumping any dirt from any Mahindra tractor on Chase Briscoe on this day. Another sure thing was commercials during the race broadcast. For those who like to know precisely how many there were, and how much time they took during the broadcast, here is this week‘s breakdown.
