During the pre-race show for the Cup race on Sunday in Kansas, the phrase, “Don‘t Be Complacent,” seemed to be the most echoed advice to achieve success by various drivers. Just like a lot of sayings, though, they sound good but aren‘t always easy to put into practice. A few drivers managed to avoid disasters and made their way through to the end in one piece, while others were not so lucky. One other thing hard to avoid on race day are the commercials during the broadcast. 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.
