The state of Kansas was named after the Native Americans who lived along the Kansas River. It has been said that ‘Kansas‘ means ‘people of the wind‘. That could be a fitting description of our NASCAR drivers; and, on Sunday, the drivers were indeed fast, and a lot of blustery, dusty air and colorful bellows were blown around the speedway as well. There were commercials coming fast and furious, too. 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.
