On Sunday at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Fox Sports continued their annual tradition of honoring our country‘s fallen heroes during their Memorial Day weekend race broadcast. Their efforts to do that were as admirable as the fierceness and intensity of the drivers battling in the race. Beginning with a segment on ‘The Bixby Letter‘, read with feeling by some well-known NASCAR figures, there were inspiring and somber tributes throughout the race. Of course, there were commercials, too. 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.
