On Sunday, NASCAR fans had just enough time to put away the leftover ham and cole slaw before it was time for the Cup race on dirt at Bristol. The fans watching the race at home, when looking at the view through the in-car camera, had to squint through murky windshields, and could only imagine what it was like for the drivers to breathe in all that dust. There was no need to squint for the commercials, though, as they always manage to come through with no problem. 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.
