If the old saying, ‘April Showers Bring May Flowers‘, was thoroughly accurate, then on Monday Dover Motor Speedway should have been a tropical rain forest. It was not, but things did come up roses for Martin Truex Jr. with his win. This was a pretty cool circumstance since his brother, Ryan, was still brushing the confetti out of his hair from his win on Saturday. It is pure speculation, but there may have been quite the Truex garden party following all of that winning. Nearly as happily as duel wins, the rain disappeared for the Monday race… but the commercials did still occur. For those fans 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.
