NASCAR tipped its Easter bonnet at the fans on Sunday, and gave them a show to watch after the ham dinner was cleaned up and the dishwasher turned on. It turned out to be a bit of a bumpy ride on a slimy track (as described by Kyle Busch), as the rain kept trying to fall, and caused all of the commentators to fill us up with stories, memories, and instructions on how to understand restarts from a frozen field. There were commercials, too. 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.
