Due to the extreme sogginess of weather on Sunday, the Xfinity and Cup Series races were bumped to Monday.  Mother Nature was not finished with her environmental blubbering, however, so the Xfinity race was bumped to the end of the Cup race, which itself was full of cautions, and a nearly one-hour rain delay. The fans in attendance who endured it all are to be commended.  The fans at home watching the broadcast had to endure nearly 200 commercials, but at least they remained dry. 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.
