For those of you NASCAR fans that like stats and love to hate commercials, here is the breakdown for Saturday’s race.

I began recording the times at 8:07 PM, despite the race commencing at 7:54 PM. (This was due to college football coverage on ABC.) I stopped at the waving of the checkered flag at 11:21 PM (all times are EST).

ESPN on ABC was the broadcast team for this event.

Please note that in addition to the commercials and promos listed below there is always a sponsor’s logo that changes throughout the race near the race ticker.

Throughout the breakdown, you can find links to sponsors, or special items-of-interest such as links to contests and movie sites.
