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 the Invocation of the race at 7:45 PM, and stopped at the waving of the checkered flag at 10:55 PM (all times are EDT). I did not keep records for the pre- and post-race coverage.

NBC was the broadcast team for this event. This was their first broadcast of the 2016 season.

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.
