There are a few things for certain following the Sunday Cup race in Atlanta: While Fords were the best qualifiers and the expected brand to dominate, Chevys actually did so; Denny Hamlin and Alex Bowman aren’t inviting each other over for a barbecue anytime soon; and everyone really enjoyed the pre-race side-by-side laps run by Kevin Harvick and Richard Childress. Another certainty: despite the race being shortened for weather, there were still commercials to watch. For those fans who like to know precisely how many there were, and how much time they took during the broadcast, here is this week’s breakdown.
