On Sunday, in Austin, the Cup race was a little bit different in interesting ways. Drivers got to try out their skills in turning right as well as left on the twisting track. The pace car was driven by a WWE star, The Undertaker, known for his Tombstone Piledriver. The winner of the race, Ross Chastain, became even more well-known as the Melon Man, doing a post-race interview while munching on, then subsequently smashing, a watermelon. Some things remained the same, though, as there were commercials. For those who like to know precisely how many ads there were, and how much time they took during the broadcast, here is this week‘s breakdown.
