Sunday‘s Cup race in Michigan began with dark, gloomy skies. Shots of the radar from around the track were ominous, and NASCAR fans heaved heavy sighs. But the rain did stop, the Titans blew things dry, and a race was held. Kevin Harvick found his lucky horseshoe, and a sweet-as-honey little girl got to ride in her Daddy‘s race car to Victory Lane. The fans watching the broadcast were able to see all of that, and some commercials, too. For those folks 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.
