There are some NASCAR fans that feel that too many cautions in a race bog the excitement level down, with all of the starting and stopping and watching the cars slowly do caution laps. Other fans argue that the cautions bunch the cars up, and make for riveting restarts with everyone inches from one another. On Sunday, despite running at a short track, there were only three cautions in the race, two of which were for the end of stages. For Chris Buescher, the unexpected winner, the race was just right no matter. The commercials that were shown during the broadcast came without surprise as well, as they show up whether there are cautions or not. For those 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.
