It has been said that praying for a sports-related result is a waste of your time, because there are many other folks praying for their own conclusions. None of these pleas are on the same level as, say, a prayer for world peace, no matter how many years have passed since a certain driver has won, or how much money was placed on a bet that another driver would win. Certainly, Chase Elliott was fervently hoping that Josh Berry could get the No. 9 in Victory Lane; and Toyota, the main sponsor of this week‘s race, would have rather had a Toyota in Victory Lane instead of a Chevy. While NASCAR fans might eagerly wish for no commercials, that is another matter best just accepted, instead of dragging it to the Divine. For those fans who like to keep track of precisely how many ads there were, and how much time they took during the broadcast, here is this week‘s breakdown.
